EI study refutes CAMERA media bias accusation

Shervan Sardar, The Electronic Intifada, 18 August 2008

The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) is a media monitoring organization with a large database of supporters known for its staunch support for Israeli policies and its ability to influence media coverage. While CAMERA claims to be objective and interested in holding the media accountable to its own "self-professed standards," [1] the terminology and views of the organization are largely consistent with those of the Israeli government itself. [2]

Earlier this year, an Electronic Intifada investigation brought CAMERA under scrutiny for its efforts to secretly take control of the administrative structures of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia in order to influence content relating to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. [3] The information obtained by EI indicated that CAMERA sought more than 50 volunteers to participate in the plan and had "set its sights on creating dozens of new editors and administrators over a long period of time." [4]

In yet another realm of the public discourse on the Arab-Israeli conflict, a study of newspaper opinion pieces (op-eds), CAMERA's efforts to influence the debate are once again called into question.
