‘Camera’ takes credit for ‘NYT”s craven corrections

Israel/Palestine
on 7 Comments

Yesterday we did a post on the extensive corrections the New York Times made to an innocent review of Mohammed Assaf’s American concert tour. The Times replaced the word “Palestinian” with Arab in reference to pre-48 cities, Haifa, Safed, and Jaffa. And it removed Israel’s responsibility for shortages in Gaza.

Well, Camera, the pro-Israel group that flogs editors with letters, is taking credit for the changes.

CAMERA explained that there are no cities in Israel that were “once Palestinian,” as the term is understood by readers today…. CAMERA further noted that the charge of Israeli responsibility for water, gas and electric shortages [in Gaza] is specious. ..

The newspaper commendably published the following correction on Dec. 31

CAMERA’s docket here looks convincing. Sad to think that such an ideological racket has such pull at the New York Times. Sad– but not surprising. Thanks to Max Blumenthal.

Rudoren meets with American Jewish Committee group

NYT Jerusalem correspondent Jodi Rudoren speaks to American Jewish Committee group


And speaking of pro-Israel groups getting access at the Times, back in October, Times Jerusalem correspondent Jodi Rudoren spoke to the National Council of Jewish Women, an American group that was visiting to “celebrate” Israel. Rudoren talked about news coverage. Yesterday she gave a similar talk, it would seem, to another visiting Zionist group, Project Interchange of the American Jewish Committee.

Rudoren is surely responding to invitations. But the pattern recalls her predecessor, Ethan Bronner, a liberal Zionist who spoke to pro-Israel organizations.

When will a Palestinian solidarity group invite Rudoren to discuss coverage of the conflict?

    CAMERA — the same guys who hounded CBS for an entire year after the “Christians of the Holy Land” piece on 60 Minutes. I guess NYT is more susceptible to yap dogs than CBS News.

    Mark Thompson, the former Director General of the BBC is now CEO of the New York Times Company. That both the BBC and the NYT are craven to the Zionists should surprise no one.

      The BBC is still public property and may still be called to order, while the NYT is the private playground of Zionists.

    When will a Palestinian solidarity group invite Rudoren to discuss coverage of the conflict? I hope soon. That would be important and fascinating.

    Would she?

    CAMERA explained that there are no cities in Israel that were “once Palestinian,” as the term is understood by readers today

    Jaffa! It was so Palestininian the UN decided to give it to the Palestinians in the 1947 division plan.

    Camera: … there are no cities in Israel that were “once Palestinian,” as the term is understood by readers today …

    There are no cities in Israel that were ‘once Israeli’, as the term is legally defined today. What’s the point?
