Why does the New China News Agency employ a Palestinian journalist who injects his personal biases into his reporting on Israeli issues. Could it be, perhaps, that Xinhua can’t tell the difference? Or does it even care?
The paper: NY Times. The dateline: Tel Aviv. The byline? Ethan Bronner — who looks at the Hamas weapons stockpile. I’m disappointed his lede starts out saying the conflict began when Israel assassinated Ahmad Jabari. Was the rocket fire leading up to it just chopped liver to Bronner?
And there is no media bias in the mainstream media against Israel? Or have the standards of journalism at the Gray Lady sunk so low that the facts no longer matter?
I’d say it’s a tossup.
