NY Times Mischaracterizes Conversations Between Egyptian Intelligence and Media

The New York Times was wrong to claim an Egyptian intelligence officer urged the media not to condemn U.S. recognition of Israel's capital. It was wrong to suddenly change its characterization of Ramallah from a lively city to a dreary town. And it was wrong to ignore anti-Semitism by Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

NYT: Shaping Perceptions of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

The New York Times did not publish quotes from the campaign of incitement by Palestinian leaders or describe the enactment of anti-Israeli violence at a Hamas camp. And it did not report on the terrorist stabbing of an Israeli civilian, likely a result of such incitement. What did it emphasize instead?

What The New York Times Won’t Show Readers

CAMERA's 2011 study, Indicting Israel: New York Times Coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict, devoted an entire chapter to "Violence Double Standards" demonstrating how Palestinan terrorism and violence against Israelis is reported through a lens of Palestinian victimhood. Recent coverage of violence in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict demonstrates the same pattern of distortions.
