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.
Hamas counts on the media to uncritically repeat their claims and provide coverage that is skewed with omissions. In recent coverage of a Hamas-orchestrated violent demonstration, The Washington Post and others, did precisely that.
AP fails to correct an erroneous reference to Hamas' tunnels from Gaza into Israel as "smuggling routes," leaving the error in place at several media outlets. Times of Israel, on the other hand, commendably amends, now accurately referring to "attack tunnels."
An article that is ostensibly about a Hamas camp's anti-Israel indoctrination actually whitewashes the phenomenon and its impact on Palestinian youth.
What does the new document say, and what does it mean?
A former U.S. Treasury Department terror analyst testified before the U.S. Congress on ties between the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) and Hamas-linked charities.
CAMERA was instrumental in convincing the Newseum, Washington, D.C.’s journalism museum, to “reevaluate” its decision to add the names of two Hamas members to its “Journalists’ Memorial.”
By pretending that all criticism of Newseum hinges on the idea that Hamas members were legitimate targets, Raphael Magarik avoid seriously dealing with Newseum's decision to consider employees of a violent, hate-peddling terrorist organization honorable "journalists."
Journalists, academics and the public look to human rights groups for guidance in assigning responsibility for the violence and misery inflicted on civilians in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But objective information is not what they get.
Adam Shatz cheerleads for Hamas in his recent piece in The London Review of Books. Israel is blamed for the November flare up and Hamas is adjudged the victor.
