C-SPAN (Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network) each year at this time ostensibly balances its coverage of the AIPAC conference with coverage of a familiar cast of anti-Israel characters.
The New York Times falsely casts condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar's antisemitic tweets as limited to "some Jewish Democrats," ignoring the Democratic Leadership's statement against "Omar's use of antisemitic tropes." The leadership is comprised of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (a Catholic) and five more congresspeople, all of them not Jewish.
The press—the self-styled “guardians of truth”—is failing to provide full and honest reporting about the mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in Congress. Their failure will enable the virus to spread.
Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network (C-SPAN) in its Washington Journal daily call-in show during March 7/8/11 indulged 18 callers inspired by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to falsely accuse Jews and Israel.
First term Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is obsessed with Israel, Tweeting such gems as “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” and charging AIPAC buys US support for Israel. Besides being offensive she's dead wrong, and here's the proof.
The Washington Post's coverage of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is superficial, inaccurate and lazy. As CAMERA notes in a recent Op-Ed, The Post's failure to report accurately about BDS comes at the expense of its reputation.
With growing frequency, The Washington Post has published op-eds that effectively whitewash or obfuscate on antisemitism when it emanates from the left. The recent controversy over Ilhan Omar’s most recent antisemitic tweet offers several examples.
The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
Ilhan Omar has tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world," and Rashida Tlaib has taken positions inconsistent with Israel's continued existence as a Jewish state, but some mainstream news outlets have ignored these views.
