update deskIsrael at War

CNN, Reuters, AP, ABC among outlets cited for media bias

One story claimed Israel treated all Palestinians as terrorists. “Baffling,” a CAMERA senior analyst wrote.

Nima Elbagir, chief CNN international investigative correspondent published a piece that represents “activism masquerading as journalism.” The Associated Press and Reuters are “quick to report Hamas’s questionable claims.” And ABC “bizarrely” stated that “Israel was violating a ceasefire that had not yet come into effect.”

These are among the instances of media bias that the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) recently published in a newsletter.

The watchdog also cited anti-Israel bias in reporting in Voice of America, Poynter, PolitiFact, Sky News, Orange County Register, The Guardian and France 24 Arabic

Of one of the instances, David Litman, a CAMERA senior analyst, wrote that “the claim that Israel’s treatment of two terrorists, who attempted to murder Jews in separate terror attacks, is proof that Israel treats all Palestinians as terrorists is baffling, to put it mildly.”
