NY Times Downplays Anti-Israel Activism, Errs on Palestinian Refugees

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."

More Historical Revisionism at the New York Times

NYT: Shaping Perceptions of the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

The New York Times did not publish quotes from the campaign of incitement by Palestinian leaders or describe the enactment of anti-Israeli violence at a Hamas camp. And it did not report on the terrorist stabbing of an Israeli civilian, likely a result of such incitement. What did it emphasize instead?

The New York Times: Misleading by Omission

A New York Times' article about a July 14th Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem contains no falsehoods or errors, but nevertheless manages to mislead readers both about Jerusalem and its holy sites, as well as the motives behind the events.

At the NYT, Seeing Israel Through a Jaundiced Eye

NYT journalists employ a singular set of criteria to assess racism in Israeli society versus others, similar to the double standard they use to condemn Israel for the sort of laws democratic countries routinely use to govern entry by foreigners into their borders.

Israel, Terror, and the New York Times
