NPR and Salon minimize or ignore a self-confessed terrorist's Islamist inclinations.
Salon.com depicts itself as a place to go for inspired alternative journalism. But its two commentators on Israel, David Palumbo-Liu and Ben Norton offer mindnumbing propaganda as they endlessly recycle PLO talking points.
Writing about an Israeli airstrike on Hamas facilities in Gaza, Salon's Ben Norton selectively cites context, downplaying the rocket threat and depicting Palestinian attackers as victims. He also presents outdated information as if it's current.
In a factually-challenged piece based on the blatantly false premise that Professor Amitai Etzioni called for the "flattening" of Beirut, Salon's Ben Norton embraces Hezbollah's baseless claims.
