I just read an article in TimesWarp, a site that reports biased coverage in the New York Times of human rights violations in occupied Palestine. But never ever mention Palestine.
Whitewashing Israeli War Crimes: the NYT Turns its Back on Survivors and Critics. It refers to bias on the part of Isabel Kershner in her New York Times article. It’s actually a pretty good textbook example of the fallacy of the middle ground. I think it is more than significant that her son is in the Israeli Army.
David Brooks may be the best known reporter for the Times. He is über well respected and considered a moderate and thoughtful writer. The guy has street cred. From his profile:
— David Brooks became an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in September 2003. His column appears every Tuesday and Friday. He is currently a commentator on “PBS NewsHour,” NPR’s “All Things Considered” and NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
He also has a son in the Israeli army. Do you think it might influence his reporting, well of course not. Why even bring it up?
Stories about Palestine are sanitized to remove any hint of a voice from a land destroyed in 1948 (The Nakba) and then further occupied in 1967 (The Naksa). It is still occupied as I write this. I was 8 months old on the day of Nakba (May 14, 1948), 19 years old on the day of Naksa (June 5, 1967).
Misinformation on Palestine has run rampant 24/7 for the last 24,943 days.
Journalists are rare and they seem to have left the building.
OK, let’s see how CAMERA.org views the New York Times. Here we have a monstrous and monstrously sized billboard below.
CAMERA is an acronym for The “Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America.” OK I’m dumbstruck by their understanding of Joseph Goebbels and Newspeak.
The NYT provides absolutely no reporting from within the occupied territories. Not good news if you are a reader of The Gray Lady, newspaper of record.
Last February Mondoweiss printed a parody of the New York Times that contained “all the news we didn’t print.”
CAMERA explains the inaccuracies in the Mondoweiss parody. OK I’m dumbstruck again.
My humble gratitude to visitors identified on my WordPress analytics page as located in the “Palestinian Territories.” However, when I float an arrow cursor to find out where it is the names Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan pop up. Hey, where in the world is Palestine?
For freedom from misinformation know your sources.What about corporately sponsored media? …coming soon.
Thanks for reading.
