AP advances the absurdly false narrative that the terror assault on Congregation Beth Israel was not connected to the Jewish community. Repeatedly reporting an FBI statement disassociating antisemitism as a motive, while ignoring statements from POTUS and other top officials citing antisemitism, the news agency also silences the ADL while giving ample voice to the antisemitism-peddling CAIR.
UPDATE: United Press International commendably corrects after erroneously reporting that 80-year-old Omar Abdalmajeed As'ad died while in Israeli military custody, a claim not found even in Palestinian coverage, and contradicted by the Israeli military.
Sinclair's foray outside local bounds and familiar playing fields into the distant Israeli-Palestinian arena spells coverage that is journalistically adrift.
With a categorical headline alleging a Swiss report determined that the Mossad bombed European firms in a bid to stymie Pakistan's weapons program, The Jerusalem Post "mistranslated" its own careful English reporting on the Swiss investigation's unproven suspicions.
Silencing the voice of Palestinian social media posts promoting murder, AFP's article suffers from an extreme lack of transparency, giving new meaning to meta reporting.
CBS and AFP ring in the New Year with old bad habits: deleting the Palestinian rocket attacks which precipitated today's Israeli strike in the Gaza Strip and omitting that Israel targeted Hamas.

International media outlets citing Israel's 1967 capture of the Golan Heights from Syria fail to inform why. The truncated history lessons ignore Syria's 19-year exploitation of the strategic territory to launch attacks on Israeli civilians below.
AP's egregiously whitewashes the Abu Nidal terrorists who in 1985 carried out simultaneous deadly attacks against crowds of passengers at the El Al counters in the Rome and Vienna airports as "guerrillas."
Haaretz's English edition commendably amends a report which stated as fact an unverified claim by Christian leaders alleging rising Israeli violence against clergy.
