Echoing false information initially released by Palestinian government sources, The Los Angeles Times falsely reports that Saeb Erekat was transferred to a hospital near Tel Aviv for treatment of coronavirus. The fact that he was actually treated in a Jerusalem hospital is a politically inconvenient fact.
The Daily Beast conceals that the subject of a prominent photograph accompanying a story about police attacks on foreign journalists at anti-Netayahu protests is a demonstrator, not a foreign journalist.

CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which misidentified the Jordan Valley as "Palestinian territory." Israel captured the disputed territory from Jordan in the defensive 1967 war, and Palestinians seek it for a future state.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which greatly overstated the number of Lebanese civilians killed in the 2006 war, erroneously citing "nearly 1,200 Lebanese civilians." In fact, this figure includes hundreds of Hezbollah fighters.
The Los Angeles Times' Noga Tarnopolsky applies a sliding scale when it comes to Israeli and Palestinians extremists and hard-liners.

Days after The Jerusalem Post fully and transparently clarified its initial misreporting of Netanyahu's remarks about Polish collaboration withh Nazis, The Los Angeles Times falsely alleges that the prime minister's office "modified the statement by removing a single word – 'the' – to remove the implication that all Poles were implicated."
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which had incorrectly blamed the Israeli blockade for unpaid salaries of civil servants in the Gaza Strip. In fact, Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority, not Israel, slashed Gaza salaries.
