In reporting on the opening of Route 4370 in the West Bank, some in the media got a little to excited about anti-Israel talking points, using them as if they are appropriate journalistic synonyms.
Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor of the New York Times, stumbles on the facts as he describes — or is it prescribes? — a rift between American and Israeli Jews. The New York Times is aware of the piece's factual errors, but they remain uncorrected.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei might have a soft white beard, but the New York Times shouldn't to confuse him with Santa Claus. In his desire to dominate neighboring countries, the Iranian leader has contributed to the destabilizing of Lebanon and other Arab states.
The New York Times had described the Palestinian killing of unsuspecting Israelis waiting at a bus stop before he fled in a getaway car as a "bold" attack. The newspaper should do better. (And it eventually did.)
Marc Lamont Hill called for violent resistance. He called for a Palestine to exist instead of, and not alongside, Israel. He called for policies that would upend Israel’s demographic balance and disempower the Jews. Why are so many of his defenders gaslighting Hill's critics instead of defending the actual ideas promoted by the former CNN contributor?
The New York Times story about Israel's High Court ruling to allow graduate student and BDS activist Lara Alqasem into the country serves as yet another vehicle for the newspaper to whitewash the campaign as one that simply promotes "Palestinian rights."
Weeks after the New York Times slurred Kenneth Marcus, who has worked to oppose anti-Semitism, as a "longtime opponent of Palestinian rights causes," the same newspaper refuses to cast a clear-cut anti-Israel activist as "anti-Israel." In fact, the Times insists her "credentials as an anti-Israel activist are far from clear-cut."
By repeating up the language of Turkey's state-run media organization, the New York Times also repeated three errors about a clash along Gaza's border with Israel.
A CNN slideshow promising "Everything You Need to Know About Yom Kippur" instead delivered a bizarre, inaccurate, and irresponsible lecture about the Jewish holiday's purported focus on "Jewish corruption."
Over the two-day Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) holiday, the New York Times greeted its Jewish readers with a one-two punch of news stories that strayed from fact-based reporting to attack supporters of the Jewish state and denigrate a widely accepted definition of anti-Semitism.
