Following communication from CAMERA, The New York Times commendably corrects a news analysis which had stated as fact that arson was responsible for a fire in a West Bank mosque. Will CNN, AFP and The Los Angeles Times likewise correct?
CAMERA prompts a New York Times correction of an article which wrongly claimed that Nazareth has just five percent of the land compared to neighboring Upper Nazareth. The Gray Lady isn't backing down, though, on its erroneous reference to the 'Nakba Law.'
Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren does not differentiate between objective reporting and pushing her viewpoint. And her editors do not care. In fact, they seem to prefer advocacy over straightforward journalism. A case in point—a Dec. 9 front page article purporting to report on a debate over Israel's Jewish identity.
A standards editor resorts to definitional contortions to avoid correcting a mischaracterization of Israel's "Nakba Law" as "prohibit[ing] funding for groups that commemorate the Nakba." In fact, the narrow law enables the state to withhold government money from state-funded bodies.
Even when Jews are murdered at prayer, The New York Times turns to false framing, lopsided speaker citations, omissions and platitudes to deflect focus away from the perpetrators and onto Israel.
Secretary of State John Kerry said Palestinian incitement was directly responsible for yesterday's brutal murder of Jews praying in a Jerusalem synagogue. His comments were initially reported but later scrubbed by a newspaper historically adverse to covering Palestinian incitement.
The New York Times continues to cover up calls for violence by relating to incitement by the Palestinian leadership as a claim on the part of right-wing Israelis instead of providing straight reports of incitement by Mahmoud Abbas.
An article in The New York Times moderates Islamic State and Hezbollah's views about Israel, and misleads about the position of the Druze in Israel.
News media suffered a melt-down in covering the 2014 Israel-Hamas war. Many veteran journalists said so.
Jodi Rudoren of the New York Times, seems to make so many extremely serious errors it makes you wonder how she can presume to intelligently report on what she apparently doesn't really understand. This time she confuses the relation between Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
