For more than forty years, press and policymakers have been misreading the Islamic Republic of Iran. In four decades, The Washington Post, for example, has gone from comparing regime founder Ayatollah Khomeini to Gandhi, to presenting a regime apparatchik and 9/11 truther as a "moderate."
The Washington Post uses unattributed Palestinian officials and shady NGOs as sources in a lengthy report on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem.
The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
The Washington Post used an obituary for former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens to belittle the current prime minister of Israel. The obituary displayed the newspaper's anti-Netanyahu zeal and its inability to present readers with the full story.
Journalists and policymakers often write of "the Arab street" as if it were a monolith. Yet, by overstating the impact that close ties with Israel would have on relations with Arab nations, generations of policymakers and pundits have been getting "the street" wrong.
An online blog is but the latest example of The Washington Post's tendency to omit the true objectives of the antisemitic boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to eliminate the Jewish state.
Journalists habitually describe the U.N.'s anti-Israel animus as "perceived," or merely the view of "Israel and its supporters." But as CAMERA demonstrates in this Fox News Op-Ed, the United Nations has long been biased against the Jewish state; it's a fact, not an opinion.
Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
The Washington Post continues to omit UNRWA's links to terrorist organizations and its promotion of anti-Jewish violence. The paper's coverage of UNRWA obfuscates and minimizes the truth about the organization.
Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based, Iranian-backed terror group, is set to control Lebanon’s Ministry of Public Health. Although Lebanon is ostensibly a U.S. ally—and a major recipient of U.S. aid—the fact that a terrorist group is about to control a major governmental post has received little to no coverage from the Western press.
