Nima Elbagir’s report is riddled with errors and half-truths, all which work to portray Palestinian terrorists who attempted to harm Israelis as somehow the real victims.
With the advent of couch journalism, we may yet look back longingly at parachute journalism. Adam Schrader's remote reporting on Israel stands out for its abundance of factual errors and partisanship, starting with the astounding claim that Israeli leaders raided the Al Aqsa Mosque.
In his life before his death, Adnan Khader had plenty to say on the question of using the body as "a tool to achieve change," as the New York Times put it. None of it, though, was in Gandhi's nonviolent spirit.
Reuters, Haaretz and The Jerusalem Post correct headlines falsely reporting that Nasser Abu Hmeid died in Israeli prison, fueling unsubstantiated Palestinian charges of medical neglect.
Not for the first time, Agence France Presse erased Nasser Abu Hamid's seven murder convictions, presenting him only as a Palestinian prisoner sick with cancer while withholding any indication about why he might be in jail.
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.
