Unwritten Understanding with the Press

CAMERA says it has a "unwritten understanding" with the American media.

Levin said, "The fact is, you know, we may be unhappy with the New York Times from time to time, and we at CAMERA have been, but I have to say we are fortunate. The American media is much, much more geared to understanding that there is an unwritten contract between them and us, and that is, that things should be factually accurate, and we get corrections all the time. Those corrections are very meaningful sometimes. We can prevent the repetition of serious errors... So there is that give and take here in the States."

These "errors" involve, for example, whether Israel should be label an apartheid state or not. Clearly this is more a matter of opinion and spin, rather than error.
