Hanadie Yousef, a student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, published a column Oct. 17 in the school newspaper, the Tartan. The column, "Pullout from Gaza City is a Charade," repeated numerous falsehoods and canards which have earlier appeared in mainstream media outlets, some of which were subsequently corrected for the record. CAMERA awaits word as to whether the Tartan will correct as well.

The International Herald Tribune, published by the New York Times, has taken a page from the Times' book of journalistic wrongdoing. The Times earlier distorted the Bush Administration's decision to not pressure Sharon about West Bank settlements, and now the Tribune falsely claims that the Bush-Sharon meeting yesterday was "intended to press Sharon to move . . . on the West Bank."

The Philadelphia Inquirer violates its own ethics code calling for 'accuracy and fairness'
When New York Times reporters Joel Brinkley and Steven Weisman interviewed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a few days ago, she apparently didn't say what they wanted to hear regarding Israel. So the enterprising reporters twisted her words to fit their own political agenda.
