Insisting on an Error: The Washington Post - Infallible, or Just in Denial?

-->The headline over Washington Post Ombudsman Deborah Howell's April 20 column read, Was 'Excluded' the Wrong Word? The column itself proved that it was, and yet the ombudsman did not find that a correction was necessary to the assertion that except for a relatively small Druze population, Israel excludes its Arab citizens from military service.


Old Habits Die Hard, If at All

The Washington Post's coverage of Arab-Israeli news continued to fall short in September. The Post's chronic pattern of prettifying Palestinians while giving Israel short shrift continued. So did the paper's newer pattern of informative, balanced Arab-Israeli editorials, making an informative contrast.


The Washington Post Ignores the Facts on Pappe

The Washington Post's profile of lecturer Ilan Pappe did not provide key context about why he is so reviled in Israel. The feature negligently omitted to mention Pappe's very open rejection of historical facts.

Other news organizations, however, have significantly improved their reporting on the document.


Sharon Stroke Coverage: The Washington Post Stumbles

Historians will have to treat the Post's first- and second-day coverage of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Jan. 4 stroke skeptically.

Scott Wilson's news articles misleads on fundamentals of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Errors of emphasis, omissions, imbalance, and lack of context make a story by the Post's new Israel correspondent highly misleading, and show that a new correspondent is not enough; the paper needs a new paradigm in its Arab-Israeli coverage.


CAMERA Obtains Correction at the Washington Post

A letter from CAMERA to the Washington Post prompted a correction on an article which vastly overstated the number of Palestinian refugees. Today's correction is similar to a New York Times correction two days ago which CAMERA also elicited.
