Haaretz amends after falsely reporting that Netanyahu's statements about the possibility of deporting Hamas leadership applied to Gaza residents, a fallacious claim which provided tailwind to South Africa's unfounded genocide charge.
AFP improves coverage after initially demoting terror commanders killed alongside Salah Al-Arouri to "bodyguards" and omitting the Hamas deputy's second claim to infamy: founding the terror organization's military wing.
While Agence France Presse neglects to correct an article which underreported that Hamas captured "dozens" of hostages, subsequent AFP articles accurately cite 240 hostages. VOA, unlike AFP, commendably corrects.
Are Hamas supporters chanting "from the river to the sea" misrepresenting Hamas' goal? Not at all. AFP corrects after ludicrously reporting that Yahya Sinwar's "dream" is a Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.
“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.
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.
While Times of Israel and BBC Arabic commendably improved their respective articles after initially failing to report that slain Palestinian teen Jibril Muhammad Ladaa was a Hamas fighter, Haaretz, Reuters and AFP have yet to add the key information.
Two flags are plainly visible in an AP photograph: Hamas' green flag and the Palestinian flag. So why did the news agency initially cite the Palestinian flag, ignoring the equally prominent flag of the terror organization?
CAMERA's video shows footage of Alareer's classroom incitement. As a result of our research and outreach to New York Times editors, the newspaper published an editors' note effectively retracting their piece on the bigoted bridge-builder.
