CiF Watch (now renamed UK Media Watch) is a website purportedly dedicated 'to monitoring and exposing antisemitism on the Guardian newspaper’s ‘Comment is Free’ blog'.[1]

However, its main tasks appears to be to anonymously smear such anti-Zionists as Seth Freedman, Antony Lerman etc.[2] Despite its frequent uses of slurs to defame critics of Israel, it has received the endorsements of Harry's Place, and of Emanuele Ottolenghi on the Commentary Blog.[3]

CiF Watch is a project of Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA).[4]
