The Washington Post used an obituary for former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens to belittle the current prime minister of Israel. The obituary displayed the newspaper's anti-Netanyahu zeal and its inability to present readers with the full story.
Months after numerous Israeli journalists determined a Channel 11 report claiming Prime Minister Netanyahu demanded that the National Library build an underground bunker to house his father's work was baseless, Haaretz's Uri Misgav repeats the story. Instead of correcting, editors add the library's denial.
AP photo captions mislead with critical omissions: Israel identified a reported cultural center bombed in Gaza as a Hamas facility. Also, Prime Minister Netanyahu criticized protesters not only for waving Palestinian flags but also for chanting, "With blood and fire, we will redeem Palestine."
The Washington Post minimizes—and often fails to report—Palestinian anti-Jewish violence. The paper has increasingly underplayed threats facing the Jewish state.
CAMERA's Presspectiva calls out Haaretz for an Odeh Bisharat Op-Ed which falsely claimed that PM Netanyahu said he saw British soldiers as a child, although they departed one year before he was born. Haaretz removes the falsehood from both the Hebrew and English editions.
In 2015 ,did Prime Minister Netanyahu declare the Temple Mount a "religious site for Muslims only," as Haaretz's English edition reported? No, he said the opposite, "recognizing the importance of the Temple Mount to peoples of all three monotheistic faiths."
In his coverage of recent UN speeches by Benjamin Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas, the new New York Times bureau chief erased key distinctions with a "both sides do it" cliché, but made inappropriate distinctions by editorializing about a "brash" Netanyahu.
A Boston Globe op-ed recycles the false charge that in his 1995 campaign Benjamin Netanyahu failed to denounce bloodthirsty anti-Rabin incitement, such as chants that he was a traitor. In fact, video and contemporaneous coverage proves Netanyahu forcefully rejected such attacks on Rabin, responding at one rally, "no, no, he's not a traitor ... we are one nation."
NPR's Emily Harris wrapped up three years coverage from Jerusalem. A CAMERA listener told the network her summary left much to be desired.
CAMERA prompts a series of corrections in a Christian Science Monitor blog on topics ranging from "Palestine" terminology to "new Israeli settlements" and the location of top-level Egyptian-Israeli meetings.
