Howard Schneider covers the Leonard Cohen concert and the controversy over boycott in the Washington Post. Says our canary:
"Good quotes from Shir Hever, an economist with the Alternative Information Center. But why no quotes from Omar Barghouti? And no mention of Israel Discount Bank’s involvement in the concert, and its funding of settlements.
"Note that the only Palestinian quoted is a ‘good Arab,’ one of a tiny fraction who support the concert. Nothing about how Combatants for Peace gave up Leonard’s money & why. Or that Palestinian civil society wrote Amnesty & asked them to pull out.
"Still, both the New York Times & Washington Post are writing about BDS, they’re noticing it."
