NPR and the New York Times have reported on "rioters" before. So why, when covering crowds of men hurling stones, throwing firebombs, attacking a border fence, setting fire to fields and buildings, and shooting Israelis, does it describe the perpetrators as "protesters"?
The headline previously read, "Israel Kills Dozens of Unarmed Protesters in Gaza as Jared Kushner Speaks of Peace, in Jerusalem."
On Gaza "March of Return" casualties, MSNBC's Chris Hayes discards any semblance of journalistic professionalism and embraces Hamas propaganda. He cites Hamas claims as fact, despite the terror group's history of manipulations.
NYT's David Halbfinger abandons the role of objective news analyst to parrot Hamas propaganda lines attacking Israel, suggesting in his own words that Israelis use "disproportionate" force against innocent demonstrators.
The Post's coverage of the recent rioting in Gaza was among the worst.
From NPR to the New York Times to Reuters and beyond, how did the media fare in covering violence along Gaza's border with Israel?
Along with foreign journalists, CAMERA's Tamar Sternthal was invited to testify at a Knesset subcommittee meeting on media bias. Do the reporters' proclamations of professionalism and objectivity hold up to scrutiny?
After numerous deadly Palestinian attacks against Israelis, PA leader Mahmoud Abbas seems to be outraged that in self-defense Israelis sometimes kill their attackers. Does he believe that successful self-defense somehow unjustly denies Palestinians their rights?
Everything about CNN's claim that soccer star Didier Drogba joined 61 other players to protest the killing of Gaza teens playing soccer is false. Drogba signed nothing, there were fewer than 62 signatories to the petition, and Israel didn't kill 4 people playing soccer. UPDATE: CNN has corrected.
In Operation Pillar of Defense, some media, relying on Palestinian sources, exaggerate the proportion of civilian casualties in Gaza. They give less weight to Israeli figures and ignore the fact that 2 out of 3 fatalities are men between ages 18-40.
