Several hours after Tiran Fero's family reported that Palestinian gunmen killed the Israeli Druze high schooler by unhooking his ventilator in a Jenin hospital, leading media outlets continued to ignore their account. And then CAMERA stepped in.
Associated Press today commendably amends incomplete captions which had initially only stated that Palestinian Haitham Shuham was shot dead by Israeli troops while failing to report why. An Israeli soldier fatally shot Shuham after he wounded a soldier, slamming a hammer into his face.
After initially elliptically reporting on Hebron Mayor Tayseer Abu Sneineh's crime, The Times of Israel now thorough details his conviction for a deadly attack in which six were murdered, including Americans and a Canadian, and 20 wounded.
AP highlights the fatal shooting of four Palestinian gunmen attacking Israeli troops as a "deadliest episode," even as the news agency downplays the fatalities' violence and terror affiliations. But the murder of three Israelis sitting in a Tel Aviv bar? Until CAMERA intervened, the only thing the wire service found deadly about that incident was the cops' killing of the Palestinian gunman "who attacked a bar."
By withholding the essential "detail" that Islamic Jihad claimed Salama Abed as one of its commanders, AP advances the false narrative of "war on Gaza," as opposed to war on a terror organization. UPDATE: In response to CAMERA's persistent communication, AP adds that Abed belonged to Islamic Jihad.
Islamic Jihad claimed Dherar al-Kafrini, killed during an Israeli arrest raid in Jenin, as "our heroic martyr." For Associated Press, that makes the young terrorist a prime candidate for a biographical touch up.
Flags cover the bodies of Palestinian fatalities, plainly confirming the deceased's terror organization membership. Despite the highly visible insignias, major Western news agencies cover up the Palestinian casualty's terror affiliations.
Times of Israel commendably corrected after inaccurately stating that the Congregration Beth Israel hostages were "freed." While one of the hostages was in fact freed, the other three escaped.
Haaretz's English edition today commendably amends two reports which whitewashed the crimes of Pakistani terrorist Aafia Siddiqui as "alleged," when in fact she was convicted of attempted murder in 2010.
CAMERA prompts corrections at US News & World Report, Metro and Yahoo after the media outlets illustrate a story covering the burial of terror victim Yehuda Dimentman with a three-year-old photo from a Palestinian funeral. Euronews has yet to correct.
