Too often, Vox reporters give the impression they're improvising their way through the news, delivering "facts" that might feel right to the reporter, but aren't actually true. Most recently: Vox claims Palestinian rockets in the days before the 2014 Gaza war were a "response" to Israeli airstrikes.
Following a well-worn pattern, The New York Times is again downplaying Palestinian belligerence, this time obscuring the fact that intensive Palestinian rocket attacks against southern Israel prompted a wave of Israeli airstrikes on Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip in the last 24 hours.
A Newsweek feature insists the so-called "second intifada" was triggered by Israel recapturing Palestinian cities in the West Bank. That's like saying the attack on Pearl Harbor was triggered by the allied invasion of Normandy.
Ali Abunimah, a co-founder of the anti-Israel hate site Electronic Intifada, tried his best to defend the credibility of Palestinian officials who lied about Israel. It is not surprising for someone who himself frequently lies about the Jewish state.
The New York Times wants readers to think only "conservatives" have taken issue with the UN Human Rights Council's anti-Israel bias. Cc: Ban ki-Moon, Kofi Annan, Samantha Power, Susan Rice, Jeff Merkley, Bill Nelson, Nita Lowey, and the Times editorial board.
Noura Erakat, a professor at George Mason, performs well before a television camera. But do her claims in a recent CBS segment about a "right of return" and Hamas hold up to scrutiny?
NPR and the New York Times have reported on "rioters" before. So why, when covering crowds of men hurling stones, throwing firebombs, attacking a border fence, setting fire to fields and buildings, and shooting Israelis, does it describe the perpetrators as "protesters"?
The Salt Lake Tribune published an Op-Ed by Michael S. Robinson that can best be described as an anti-Semitic rant. Its attacks against "the Jews," falsehoods demonizing Israel, and calls for "regime change" targeting the Jewish state conform perfectly to the definition of "anti-Semitism" used by the United States and the European Union.
On Monday, the Palestinian president blamed the Holocaust and anti-Jewish pogroms throughout history on the Jews themselves. The New York Times initially passed on reporting the story — but two days later came around to publishing a piece.
Writing in the New York Times, MK Ayman Odeh claimed it is legal under Israeli law for the planned town of Hiran to racially discriminate against potential residents. In fact, the law explicitly forbids such discrimination.
