*Jimmy Carter's book is in a separate catagory from the others lists. While some of the others listed include a degree of bias, Carter's book combines extreme bias with a large number of factual errors. CAMERA has compiled a Roundup of Commentary on Jimmy Carter's Palestine: Peace not Apartheid which includes A Comprehensive Collection of Jimmy Carter's Errors.

CAMERA has also published a monograph, "Bearing False Witness," also documenting errors and including some of the critiques also posted on the web. Those critics include Kenneth Stein, the first executive director of the Carter Center at Emory University, who felt compelled to resign as a fellow at the Carter Center.
