The Irish Times journalist could have responded civilly to our tweet, but instead chose snark, a complete non-sequitur designed to divert from the topic at hand, representing another example of how journalists who demand accountability from politicians and government institutions when gathering information for their reports often fail to hold themselves to the same standards when questioned by news consumers – and watchdog groups like ours.
Avnery’s Nazi comparison is completely without merit, and the decision by Irish Times editors to publish such a smear – an analogy considered antisemitic per the EUMC Working Definition of Antisemitism – represents another example of how, when it comes to Israel, even the most hateful, offensive and incendiary accusations are not off-limits.

So, the question remains. Did the Irish Times accurately report what Baboun said and inadvertently pass on misinformation to its readers, or did the paper get it wrong and introduce the misinformation into the story on its own?
Irish Times retracts false assertion that Yisrael Beiteinu advocates deportation of Israel’s Arab citizens.
By CiFWatch editorial team. In her review of books about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on September 13th for the Irish Times Lara Marlowe made an egregious error.
(CAMERA senior research analyst Gidon Shaviv assisted in this post) We recently posted about an Irish Times article by Lara Marlow which highlighted Haaretz’s Gideon Levy (“Holocaust makes Israelis think international law doesn’t apply,” Sept. 11th) in which Levy […]
As CAMERA has previously documented, in 2004 Gideon Levy claimed in a Ha’aretz column that “Golda Meir said that after what the Nazis did to us, we can do whatever we want,” but was later forced to admit that […]

We’ve previously written about Irish Times columnist Eamonn McCann, a Trotskyist activist and commentator who has employed the “chosen people” canard to suggest that Israeli attacks are arguably inspired by a belief in their […]
Mahmoud Abbas “is not a partner for a permanent-status agreement in which at the end there is recognition of the State of Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people,” Israeli […]
Our increasing commentary on Israel related coverage by sites such as The Independent, The Telegraph, The Times, The Economist and the Irish Times is often helpful in properly contextualizing coverage at the Guardian. Regarding […]
This blog’s previous experience with Irish Times journalist Frank McDonald involved our success at prompting a correction at the paper last August to a false allegation he made concerning BDS. Despite the correction, however, the Aug. […]

In October we posted about a shameful smear at The Irish Times – by a socialist activist, former Trotskyite and occasional ‘Comment is Free’ contributor named Eamonn McCann – with the following headline: McCann’s piece included fantastical anecdotes such […]
Even by the standards of anti-Zionist hostility we’re accustomed to while monitoring the Guardian, a commentary published by the Irish Times on Oct. 3 is simply odious. Here’s the headline of the […]

It would be easy to dismiss an absurd comment left by a reader (beneath a recent CiF Watch post about bias at the Irish Times) as simply not worthy of attention. However, […]
In our July 29 post, ‘What does the mother of a pre-Oslo monster look like?‘, we focused on a story in The Independent about Israel’s decision to release 104 Palestinians prisoners – inmates, convicted before Oslo, largely […]
