U.S. media watchdog campaigns against NYTimes' anti-Israel bias
CAMERA places billboard adjacent to Times' offices in N.Y.C., calling on the paper to stop slanted reporting and commentary against Israel.
Boston-based American media watchdog group CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) has launched a campaign against The New York Times for what it claims is the paper's biased coverage of Israel, the PR Newswire reported.
The billboard headline reads: "Would a great newspaper slant the news against Israel? The New York Times does." A short list enumerates criticism. The message ends with a call to "Stop the bias."
CAMERA director Andrea Levin says the paper has a "chronic bias embedded in the reporting and commentary," and a study authored by the group claims The Times omits certain facts.
The watchdog group has placed a billboard adjacent to The Times' offices in New York City and is publishing ads in several newspapers, among them The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post.
