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 describes how Hezbollah has employed the media to convey its message to the world.
Israel's cabinet and Knesset have voted to support recent peace agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Only one political party opposed accepting the Accords: the Joint List. And the media, despite having lavished recent attention on the Joint List, has declined to report the party's opposition to the peace deals.
Iran has been threatening Americans, murdering soldiers and civilians and plotting terror against the U.S. for years. But as CAMERA noted in The Daily Wire, many news outlets have chosen to ignore or minimize the Islamic Republic's behavior and agenda.
A recent Washington Post editorial faulted Israel for defending itself against Iranian proxies in Iraq.
Reuters captions about burning fields in southern Lebanon clearly identify the blaze's cause: an Israeli shell. In contrast, Reuters captions about damage in Israel fail to identify the cause: the Hezbollah anti-tank missile attack which prompted the Israeli response. Reuters' double standard is consistent with incomplete captions about Palestinian arson attacks in southern Israel.
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.
Many journalists evidence a double standard when covering terrorism. Those groups whose primary target is Israel, such as Hezbollah and Hamas, are more likely to be treated uncritically.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei might have a soft white beard, but the New York Times shouldn't to confuse him with Santa Claus. In his desire to dominate neighboring countries, the Iranian leader has contributed to the destabilizing of Lebanon and other Arab states.
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.
Evidence of Germany’s affinity for Iran—and vice versa—is abundant, if often ignored by press and policymakers alike. The underreported relationship between the two nations stretches back more than a century and has profound implications for the future.
The Jewish nation may soon face a war on five fronts. Yet, many media outlets are failing to properly detail the threat emanating from Iran.
