Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America
Posted by Fredsvenn den april 24, 2008
A pro-Israel pressure group is orchestrating a secret, long-term campaign to infiltrate the popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia to rewrite Palestinian history, pass off crude propaganda as fact, and take over Wikipedia administrative structures to ensure these changes go either undetected or unchallenged.
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is a Boston-based, non-profit, pro-Israel media watch organization which was founded in 1982 to respond to perceived anti-Israel bias in The Washington Post.
CAMERA has been noted for its pro-Israel media monitoring and advocacy. CAMERA states it releases reports to stop what it sees as «frequently inaccurate and skewed characterizations of Israel and of events in the Middle East» that it believes may fuel anti-Israel and anti-Jewish prejudice. The group mobilizes protest against what it sees as unfair media coverage through full-page ads in newspapers, organizing demonstrations, and encouraging sponsors to withhold funds.
