      BACKGROUNDER: Hezbollah’s Media Weapon

      Over the past six years, Hezbollah's use of the media against Israel has intensified. In addition to Al Manar television, the organization's official propaganda instrument, Hezbollah utilizes other Arab news stations and even the international press.

      CAMERA Op-Ed: How the Founder of Hezbollah Built the Modern Middle East

      Obituaries in Western news outlets noted that Ali Akbar Mohtashamipur was a founder of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed, U.S.-designated terrorist group that rules Lebanon. But, as CAMERA wrote in The National Interest, Mohtashamipur was more than a founding father of one of the world’s largest terrorist organizations. He was, in fact, one of a handful of men who built the modern Middle East.

      The Joint List Rejects Peace—and the Media Rejects Coverage

Reuters' double standard is consistent with incomplete captions about Palestinian arson attacks in southern Israel.

      Los Angeles Times Corrects on Lebanese Casualties in 2006 War

      CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which greatly overstated the number of Lebanese civilians killed in the 2006 war, erroneously citing "nearly 1,200 Lebanese civilians." In fact, this figure includes hundreds of Hezbollah fighters.

      CAMERA Op-Ed: Hezbollah Takes Over Lebanon’s Ministry of Health, Media is M.I.A

      Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based, Iranian-backed terror group, is set to control Lebanon’s Ministry of Public Health. Although Lebanon is ostensibly a U.S. ally—and a major recipient of U.S. aid—the fact that a terrorist group is about to control a major governmental post has received little to no coverage from the Western press.

      CAMERA Op-Ed: Germany’s Underreported Relationship with Iran
