In line with the way the New York Times generally reports on Israel, the newspaper's interview of Democratic presidential candidates reveals a baked in assumption of Israeli guilt.
Tens of thousands of pro-Israel marchers came out for Manhattan's Celebrate Israel Parade, but Haaretz's headline and prominent photograph featured a miniscule minority of anti-Israel demonstrators. Fifteen years ago, The New York Times published an Editor's Note after similarly giving disproportionate visibility to the small anti-Israel group.
CAMERA has hung a giant, 35-foot billboard directly outside the New York Times building that spotlights the paper’s biased coverage against Israel.
The Daily, a New York Times podcast hosted by Michael Barbaro, shows how naturally the anti-Israel narrative comes to Times reporters, who exclude Israeli voices, suggest Palestinians didn’t attack Israeli civilians during the intifada, conceal the Palestinian rejection of peace offers, blame Netanyahu for building the security barrier, misstate the American position on the legality of Israel's occupation, and much, much more.
C-SPAN (Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Network) each year at this time ostensibly balances its coverage of the AIPAC conference with coverage of a familiar cast of anti-Israel characters.
While other groups claim that Jews should not be permitted to live as a minority among Palestinians in the West Bank, Amnesty goes even farther, targeting the ability of Jews to travel there to see their own history.

The only "silence on Palestine" has been on Palestinian conduct, as the paper's own public editor noted in 2014.
