One day after the Israeli army blamed exploded Palestinian ordinance as responsible for the death of the Abu Arar baby and her aunt, Haaretz's English print edition carried only Hamas' side of the story. The Hebrew print edition, in contrast, reported the army's denial at length.
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."

Foreign Policy labeled the disappearance of enriched uranium decades ago from a Pennsylvania facility "one of the most confounding puzzles of the nuclear era" despite investigations involving CIA, Congress, FBI and others.

"Time to Break the Silence on Palestine" demands Michelle Alexander's New York Times Op-Ed, as if the very same paper has not been publishing a daily drumbeat of material focused on alleged Israeli crimes, real and imagined. The only "silence on Palestine" has been on Palestinian conduct, as the paper's own public editor noted in 2014.
