Friedman drove the radical overhaul of US policy on Israel-Palestine

NYT reports that Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer-turned-ambassador leaves his post having radically overhauled policy toward Israel and the Palestinians… The administration moved ahead with a raft of policies previous administrations, both Republican & Democratic, had resisted…

‘NY Times’ story on Iran-Al Qaeda is dishonest — and could help justify a U.S./Israeli attack

Trump and Netanyahu could be using the same scare tactics to justify any attacks on Iran they may be planning — and the Times may have fallen into their trap. The Times published a misleading report on its front page that further raises the risk that Trump and Netanyahu could provoke a conflict with Iran during the Trump administration’s final 66 days…

A sensationalist, award-winning ‘NY Times’ podcast on Islamic Jihadism was based on a fraud

An award-winning breathless New York Times podcast about Islamic Jihadism that was downloaded millions of times in 2018 turns out to have been based on a fraudulent liar — but so far the paper and its reporter, Rukmini Callimachi, have declined to fully acknowledge their error. Callimachi has connections to Israel lobby organizations…

This framing hides US governmental responsibility, and makes it harder for the public to judge intelligently where to place blame.

For NYT, Israel Is Always Nearing ‘Apartheid,’ but Never Quite Gets There

The New York Times – most notably columnist Thomas Friedman – acknowledges that current policies and practices in Israel/Palestine are now and have been for decades a form of apartheid, yet for some unspecified reason, the paper has stated for twenty years merely that the region is “at risk of” becoming an apartheid state. In spite of profuse evidence from experts around the world and from Israel’s own legislation, NYT refuses to state the obvious.

Media ignore, disparage, or misrepresent Palestinian Right of Return

A FAIR study finds that major US news outlets rarely mention the Right of Return, although it is a primary part of the Israel/Palestine issue. In the last ten years, only 0.01 percent of coverage of Palestinians or Palestine in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post informs its audience about the right of return or even mentions it at all. When they do mention it, they generally imply that it is not a legitimate, UN-conferred right; or they describe the exercise of that right as an act of aggression/national “suicide” for Israel.
