Longtime CNN host Fareed Zakaria apparently failed to get the memo from his new bosses directing CNN content towards fact-based journalism.
Fareed Zakaria’s Sunday broadcasts often misinform about Israel. Such was the case in the discussion about the COVID vaccinating experience of various countries. Zakaria mentioned Israel’s success but then added a caveat.
CNN's Fareed Zakaria falsely cited Benjamin Netanyahu's shelved "promise of annexation of the West Bank." But the prime minister's plan involved only Israeli settlements and the Jordan Valley, some 30 percent of the West Bank, not the disputed territory in its entirety. And, contrary to Zakaria's slip, no "new settlements" have been approved.
Zakaria’s discussion of the current normalization of relations between Israel and Arab Gulf states unsurprisingly includes misleading claims and falsehoods. This is consistent with the CNN culture of bias against the Jewish state which has been documented by CAMERA.
Fareed Zakaria hosted a “discussion” about the U.S. proclamation recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israeli territory. It took place on Zakaria's grandiosely named "Global Public Square" program.
Here is an example of how journalist Fareed Zakaria and propagandist Rashid Khalidi join forces to mislead about BDS and Jerusalem. CAMERA provides an analysis of the propaganda techniques used.
Fareed Zakaria of CNN, The Washington Post, etc., has been caught plagiarizing again. The chronic Middle East misreader still has protexia, but feet of clay are showing.
Fareed Zakaria blamed “Israel and the West” for postponing long overdue Palestinian elections. CAMERA obtained a correction to the Washington Post column, but the thinly spread media figure couldn't quite let it go at that …
Fareed Zakaria, the over-exposed pundit of CNN, TIME and The Washington Post, advises Israel and the United States that a nuclear-armed Iran can be tolerated and deterred. His argument, however, rests on bad history, false comparisons and unconvincing empathy.
CNN's global opinionator, Fareed Zakaria, threw everything he had -- superficial analogies, distorted facts and cliches -- at Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Neetanyahu. Melodrama, yes; analysis, no.
