After CAMERA's communication with senior editors, ABC corrected a piece that had wrongly suggested Israel was in violation of a ceasefire agreement that had not yet come into effect.
“No one has correct numbers, that’s not possible anymore,” Health Ministry official Mehdat Abbas told AP. “Who can count the bodies and release the death toll in a press conference?” And yet it's business as usual at Reuters, which keeps on reporting mysterious casualty statistics attributed to "authorities in Gaza" and "health officials."
DPA commendably deletes references to Hamas' unverified figure for Gaza casualties which multiple captions has reported as fact and without attribution to the terror organization.
An AP "fact check" report is unironically headlined: "Misinformation about the Israel-Hamas war. Here are the facts." Far from supplying the facts, today's "fact check" conceals known facts, bringing us back to the worst of last week's coverage of Hamas' Al Ahli hospital misinformation campaign.
CAMERA prompts correction of an AFP headline which falsely reported that “Gaza rulers Hamas display weapons for first time.” In fact, Hamas’ public displays of weapons are a frequent affair in the Gaza Strip.
Weaponized usage of a single key word can propagate an insidious blood libel. CAMERA prompts correction after Reuters mischaracterized confirmed terrorist leaders targeted by Israel as "alleged Islamic Jihad commanders."
CAMERA prompts quick improvements after AP initially buried the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade affiliation of three fighters killed this morning near Nablus and underreported the number of combatants killed earlier this month in Gaza.
In an otherwise informative article about the Israeli navy's efforts to block Hamas' smuggling of weapons into the Gaza Strip, CAMERA prompts clarification about the impact of Israel's naval blockade on the livelihood of Gaza fishermen. Since the blockade was imposed, the fishermen's haul has increased, according to Palestinian figures.
In response to communication from CAMERA, Times of Israel amends an Agence France Presse article claiming that the Israeli-led blockade has "suffocated" the Gaza Strip's fishing industry, commendably adding data demonstrating that the fishermen's catch has significantly grown in the last 15 years.
UPDATE: CAMERA prompts an Editor's Note after The New York Times falsely reported that Gaza's fishing industry is collapsing under the Israeli blockade, ignoring official Palestinian data showing that the catch has more than doubled in the last 15 years.
