The New York Times, one of the most influential newspapers in the world, not only influences its readers but also has significant impact on the news judgment and editorial perspective of other media. The caliber of accuracy, balance and thoroughness in this publication are therefore of particular importance.
The New York Times continues to eschew objectivity and employ a double standard in its coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Our six-month study of the newspaper's coverage details how the newspaper treats Israel with a harsher standard, omits context, and shows a clear preference for the Palestinian narrative.
In the latest blow to The Times' expired identity, the former Paper of Record refuses to set the facts straight on Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel. The longest period of Jewish rule extended beyond three centuries, not 80 years.
In the fight between Israel and Hamas the rockets and bombs may have stopped for now, but what hasn’t even paused are the efforts by human rights organizations and certain pundits, politicians and comedians to condemn Israel for allegedly using “disproportional force,” ethnically cleansing Palestinians from Jerusalem, and being an apartheid state. All the charges are recycled lies and propaganda.
The Times' claim that Palestinian Tayseer Mleitat was killed by Israeli troops "at a protest" is a gross misrepresentation of information available in the paper's own archives: he was part of a crowd of hundreds which targeted soldiers with Molotov cocktails and rocks.
Why doesn't New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof want Americans to imagine what it would be like, and what their government should do, if terrorists firing barrages of indiscriminate rockets into their towns and cities?
Here's what The New York Times hadn't told you about the children killed in Gaza, and also what they had told you without confirming. A hard, honest look at the facts reveals the truth that The Times conceals: It's Hamas' will.
Patrick Kingsley, the British-born Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, formerly reported for the Guardian, a paper not known for fidelity to the truth, especially when it comes to Israel. The recent disturbances and fighting in Israel and Gaza have been the perfect opportunity for Kingsley to peddle Guardian-style agitprop to a new set of readers. Kingsley repeats one Palestinian myth after another, and even interviews bigots and Holocaust deniers, giving them space to slander Israel.
