Using an Israeli film as a base point, Amanpour’s panel discussion echoed Palestinian propaganda. Panelist Helal criticized recent U.S. Middle East diplomats, adding pejoratively, “they were all Jewish.”
Christian Amanpour's softball interview with Iranian FM Zarif on Iran's nuclear activity and belligerence in the region is a study in contrast with her hostile cross-examination of Israeli politician Gideon Saar who dared dispute her fallacious assertion that Israeli is legally responsible for vaccinating Palestinians.
Fareed Zakaria’s Sunday broadcasts often misinform about Israel. Such was the case in the discussion about the COVID vaccinating experience of various countries. Zakaria mentioned Israel’s success but then added a caveat.
Are media reports elevating B'Tselem to Israel's "leading human rights organization" justified? Human rights advancements are won in the legal realm, but B'Tselem does not engage in legal activity, and has accomplished no rights advancements for Palestinians. Its successes are in the international media, not human rights.
The Associated Press (AP) and Reuters coverage of the Hanan Ashrawi resignation used by a multitude of media outlets large and small, merely echoed the resignation announcement and depicted her only in positive terms. Meanwhile CNN’s Amanpour even partnered with Ashrawi to defame Israel.
In covering Saeb Erekat’s legacy as a Palestinian official, CNN revisited its historical deleterious role in misleading viewers about the Palestinian conflict with Israel.
CAMERA prompts CNN corrections after the network downgraded the West Bank settlement of Psagot to an "outpost," which is not recognized by Israeli authorities, and adopted the language of Iran's Foreign Minister spokesman, misidentifying Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
The broadcast suggests that there would have been a decent chance for a realistic peace agreement with the Palestinians if not for the 1995 assassination of Yitzhak Rabin. This notion is detached from reality.
CNN's Fareed Zakaria falsely cited Benjamin Netanyahu's shelved "promise of annexation of the West Bank." But the prime minister's plan involved only Israeli settlements and the Jordan Valley, some 30 percent of the West Bank, not the disputed territory in its entirety. And, contrary to Zakaria's slip, no "new settlements" have been approved.
Zakaria’s discussion of the current normalization of relations between Israel and Arab Gulf states unsurprisingly includes misleading claims and falsehoods. This is consistent with the CNN culture of bias against the Jewish state which has been documented by CAMERA.
