Journalism is failing. Not because of revenue issues and the rise of digital media. But because of decreasing standards and ethics. The Washington Post, which paid ten million dollars for a Super Bowl ad but isn't willing to pay for an ombudsman, is a case in point.
Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
CAMERA prompts correction of a letter-to-the-editor by Eitan Peled, former programming director for SJP at UCLA, for his false claim that there are "hundreds of Palestinian children in Israeli military prisons." No Palestinians, minors or otherwise, are held in Israeli military prisons.
Following communication from CAMERA, Haaretz clarifies its Airbnb coverage, making clear that the hospitality company's West Bank settlements boycott does not also extend to eastern Jerusalem. The New York Post likewise corrects the error.
Doctors Without Borders gunman Hani Majdalawi "didn't even know how to use a weapon," said his brother Osama in The Los Angeles Times, casting doubt on the Israeli charge. A post earlier on Osama's Facebook page, however, boasted that Hani "bought the weapon with his own money." Osama cites hackers as at fault for the discrepancy.
Roll Call argues that the Democratic Party is increasingly disenchanted with Israel—and implies that the Jewish state is to blame for this shift. But the newspaper relies on both superficial history and untrustworthy sources to reach its preordained conclusion.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
Politico uses questionable sources and a false narrative to attack the U.S. Ambassador to Israel and U.S.-Israeli relations.
The outcome of the General Assembly vote about Jerusalem was predictable, if not surprisingly lacking the number of supporters pro-Palestinian votes tend to attract. But to the New York Times, it was astounding.
The Times recently published an article about Israel's denial of a work visa to HRW's Omar Shakir, and relayed UN criticism of the sentence handed down by an Israeli court to an IDF soldier. But as is often the case with the NYT, readers were not provided with an objective presentation of the facts from a neutral standpoint or given enough info to form an opinion on the issues.
