CNN's reliably anti-Israel correspondent Ben Wedeman claims Jerusalem has never been more divided, apparently forgetting that Jerusalem was sliced down the middle by rolls of barbed wire and armed border guards, with Jews denied access to the city's Jewish Quarter and their holy sites.
Juan Cole cries of a "threat to American democracy," but it's the threat to his already-battered reputation that seems to propel his angry and deceptive response to CAMERA's recent critique.
CNN Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman recently used his Twitter account to promote an anti-Israel rant by polemicist Juan Cole. Shortly thereafter, he engaged in some biased reporting of his own, stating that east Jerusalem belongs to the Palestinians and claiming that Israel needs to be convinced to start direct negotiations with Palestinians.
CNN provides a disturbing glimpse into what its senior correspondent in Jerusalem wants the public to notice (Palestinian grievances and false accusations against Israel) and what he thinks people should ignore (Israeli victims and concerns).
