The New York Times Guide to Peace Negotiations

"Heads, I win; tails, you lose" is the trope that apparently informs the New York Times’news coverage of the Palestinian- Israeli peace process.

Whether discussing Palestinian demands or Israeli demands, Palestinian rejection of Israeli positions or Israeli rejection of Palestinian positions, the newspaper identifies the same party as the obstacle to successful peace talks — Israel.

In the real world, negotiations involve demands and counter-demands by each party. Success is accompanied by give and take on both sides.

But in the alternate universe of the New York Times, where opinion is injected into news reports, only Palestinian demands and positions are relayed as valid, while those of Israel are labeled "obstacles."

CAMERA columns in American Thinker (Jan. 23, 2014) and Times of Israel (Jan. 27, 2014) compare the newspaper’s coverage of both parties’ positions in peace negotiations. Read the entire column in the Times of Israel by clicking here.
