Why Spanish People Get It Wrong
July 19, 2017
El País, the largest and most influential newspaper in the Spanish world, has a long history of biased reporting about the Jewish state and the Arab-Israeli conflict.  For several years since 2009, the newspaper's coverage was somewhat more balanced and objective.  But it seems, over the past year, to be drifting back to its previous anti-Israel reporting and its opinion pages have become a forum for anti-Israel activists.

Al-Jazeera America (AJAM) Watch

Update: AJAM discontinued broadcasting on April 12, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern)
 
Financed by the oil sheikdom of Qatar, the network began broadcasting on Aug. 20, 2013. Why would Qatar's rulers – who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to launch the new satellite-cable news channel – want to compete with other American cable and over-the-air networks? To give Americans yet another choice for television news, or to gain a platform for Qatari foreign policy (as has been the case with Al-Jazeera Arabic and Al-Jazeera English)? That policy has been problematic in recent years.
