When Hamas terrorists attacked Israel on October 7–the world was caught off guard. Neither Israeli forces nor the U.S. appeared to have known this was being planned.
Americans watched in horror as they learned how Hama forces killed 1,400 helpless civilians. Many wondered how this could have happened.
Now, a new report is putting numerous media outlets on trial. And the leaders of Israel are demanding answers.
The pro-Israel media watchdog organization brought up ethical concerns Wednesday, noting that media photographers seemed to have known about the attack and were quite at ease among the terrorists, who were shooting every other civilian they found…
GPO Director Nitzan Chen demands explanations from the bureau chiefs of AP, Reuters, CNN and The New York Times regarding the disturbing findings in the Honest Reporting report on the involvement of their photographers in the events of October 7th, which crosses every red line, professional and moral.
Reports are emerging that major news outlets have photographers “embedded” within terror network Hamas. These photographers were on hand while Hamas murdered Israeli citizens. Some claim the photographers were “at ease” among the terrorists.
In one instance, a photographer posted selfies with a local Hamas leader.
The Associated Press claimed it had no prior knowledge of the attacks, yet its own photographers were seen alongside Hamas agents. Now, Israel’s top officials are accusing these media outlets of violating ethical, moral, and professional lines.
According to Israel’s Government Press Office, four photographers who worked for AP, Reuters, CNN, and the New York Times accompanied Hamas and “filmed the murder of civilians, the abuse of bodies and the abduction of men and women.”
It appears major media outlets have employed local “stringers” in the Middle East who have sympathy for anti-Israel terrorist groups. These are usually the only photographers who can gain access to groups like Hamas or Hezbollah.
But does that justify MSM companies paying these people for their photographs? This might raise further questions for these outlets. What did they know and when? Why didn’t these photographers warn civilians? Why did they stand by as victims were killed?
This could result in serious consequences for these companies, by the Israeli government.
- Media outlets have been accused of hiring photographs that accompanied Hamas during the October 7th attack.
- Israeli officials are confronting AP, Reuters, CNN, and the New York Times.
- These photographers filmed the murder of victims, without doing anything to stop it.
