A headline in Haaretz's English edition misquotes Haim Rubovitch and the accompanying article mangles a Moshe Yaalon quote with a long history of rampant misreporting followed by notable corrections.
Don't be fooled by AFP's qualified reference to unsubstantiated Israeli claims of unspecified "terror." This week's captions cover up for Yehuda Dimantmen's suspected murderer just as much as 2019 AFP captions covered up for the murderer of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin.
While conflicting sources is a common phenomenon in journalism, it's not often that a journalist directly contradicts his own sources, passing them off as substantiation when they are just the opposite.
Associated Press' imperfect headline is "Israel strikes Gaza after gunfire wounds civilian near fence." The Los Angeles Times further degrades it.
The Hollywood Reporter falsifies that the film "Advocate" follows Leah Tsemel as she defends "political prisoners." In fact, the documentary covers Ahmed Manasrah, convicted for two counts of attempted murder, and Israa Jabris, who detonated explosives as police approached.
Numerous AFP captions whitewash Marwan Barghouti as a "veteran fighter" who spent nearly two decades is Israeli prison and who is dubbed by some as a "Palestinian Mandela." The captions make no mention of his multiple convictions for murder, along with other terror crimes.
In English (but not French), AFP falsely reports that Israeli Public Minister Amir Ohana "said Palestinian prisoners would be the last to get inoculated" with the coronavirus vaccine. In fact, the minister's statement late last month was that prison staff would be vaccinated at that time, but not prisoners.
NPR's Daniel Estrin grossly misleads, falsely suggesting that Israel withheld the coronavirus vaccine from Palestinian prisoners even as other prisoners received the jab. In fact, Palestinian prisoners have been in the exact same position as other prisoners with respect to access to the vaccine.
By failing to correct the false claim that Palestinian prisoner Kamal Abu Waer, sick with cancer, died in prison, when in fact he passed away in a hospital, AP plays into baseless Palestinian propaganda that Israel denies Palestinian prisoners adequate medical care.
Foreign Policy gives a pass to to Salem Barahmeh of the Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy to whitewash convicted Palestinian terrorists who carried out lethal attacks against Israelis as "political prisoners." Separately, the publication revises Barahmeh's unfounded reference to the displacement of "entire Palestinian communities," enabled by the Trump administration.
