National Geographic Slave to Bias
National Geographic's September 2003 article by Andrew Cockburn entitled "21st Century Slaves" fails to mention the world's leading human-rights and slave-trafficking offender, Sudan, while unfairly highlighting with a double-page photograph Israel's relatively insignificant prostitution rings.
National Geographic “Stands By” Its Errors
CAMERA has twice sent to John M. Fahey, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of National Geographic Society, a detailed enumeration of the errors, distortions and omissions in "Lines in the Sand - Deadly Times in the West Bank and Gaza," by Andrew Cockburn in the October, 2002 edition of National Geographic magazine. Many readers have also written letters of protest to the editors. Despite this, the Geographic continues to "stand by" the article's errors.
