In a span of twenty-four hours the Washington Post published two deeply misleading reports that were heavy on omissions and light on facts and context. The newspaper promoted questionable polls and an anti-Israel pundit to subtly push for the annihilation of the Jewish state.
C-SPAN (Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network) each year at this time ostensibly balances its coverage of the AIPAC conference with coverage of a familiar cast of anti-Israel characters.
Ali Abunimah, a co-founder of the anti-Israel hate site Electronic Intifada, tried his best to defend the credibility of Palestinian officials who lied about Israel. It is not surprising for someone who himself frequently lies about the Jewish state.
CAMERA prompts corrections of a Jerusalem Post headline and article which inaccurately identified radical anti-Israel activist Ali Abunimah, co-founder of Electronic Intifada, as a journalist.
At the University of California, Riverside, an undergraduate student and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) leader is teaching a one-credit course clearly intended to indoctrinate students to hate and act against Israel.
The combination of anti-Israel bloggers Robert Mackey and Ali Abunimah had led to a factual error at The New York Times, which, to its credit, the newspaper corrected yesterday. We expect more errors, though, as long as Mackey is free to cover Israel with such transparent hostility.
Just as they lied about Palestinian rockets and New York Times cover photos, about Moshe Yaalon and Martin Luther King, and Ilan Pappé, Electronic Intifada’s authors continue to mislead about David Ben Gurion.
CAMERA's Gilead Ini appeared on the MPR program In The Loop (Jan. 9, 2009) to discuss media coverage of the conflict in Gaza and southern Israel.
