NBC’s ‘Dig’ gets $6.5 million from Israel to film in E. Jerusalem while Palestinian residents lack drinking water
NBC’s “The Dig” to receive $6.5 million grant from Israeli government to film in Silwan, meanwhile Palestinian residents go without safe drinking water.
The New York Times corrects of story on Israeli military abuse of Palestinians in Hebron, but still privileges the military’s perspective over that of the Palestinians who witnessed the abuse.
NY Times troubling corrections: Hebron youth who first ‘had brass knuckles’ now investigated for possessing ‘weapons’ (Updated)
Unfortunately in the upside down world of the New York Times’ reporting on Palestine and Israel, where Palestinian voices often count less than Israeli voices, bringing exculpatory evidence to light and requesting a correction doesn’t always result in greater clarity. It can instead resulted in further impugning the always-accused Palestinians.
Jeff Stein has followed up on his Newsweek report from Tuesday on how Israel spies on the U.S. more than any other ally. Today he writes the reason this is not more widely known is because it is hushed up by the Israel lobby.
Three recent New York Times articles demonstrate yet again how one of the US’s most influential media outlet sometimes excludes or marginalizes Palestinian voices and perspectives in news stories touching on Israel’s discriminatory policies towards Palestinians.
The Daily newspaper at the University of Washington recently ran an editorial titled “Why Israel?: The problems with ASUW Resolution 20-39.” Author Nathan Taft uses a familiar “ends justify the means” argument has long been used to justify colonial and imperial projects, especially those of western powers. In fact, on April 4th, 1968 the Daily published an opinion piece co-authored by journalists Richard Sanders and Larry Parr with strikingly similar arguments attempting to justify South African Apartheid.
A video by Rap News about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its relationship to settler colonialism, among other things.
Thursday morning, students in two New York University dormitories woke up to find mock eviction notices slid under their doors by Students for Justice in Palestine to raise awareness of home demolitions in Palestine. The media quickly picked up a false accusation by pro-Israel groups that Jewish dorm rooms were targeted by the activists, and the only source in these reports was a single NYU student, Laura Adkins, vice president of NYU’s Israel advocacy organization, TorchPAC. Phan Nguyen talks with Adkins and reveals how this fake story is consistent with recent attempt to discredit pro-Palestinian activism.
In what might be justified by the New York Times as an attempt to “depoliticize” and “humanize” Palestinian women in Gaza the paper ran a photo essay this past Sunday titled “Female in Gaza.” However the article obfuscates, covering up Israeli oppression and obscuring Gaza’s connection to the West Bank and to Palestinians in general.
Pamela Paul, the editor of The New York Times Book Review, needs some help, and the Mondoweiss community can come to her assistance. Paul says that maybe the Book Review should have edited a letter it published that claimed “Palestinian Arabs have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews.” Care to help them out?
Before journalist and author Max Blumenthal turned his eye towards Israel/Palestine, he was a dogged investigator of the seedy world of neo-Nazism and white supremacism in the U.S. But now, liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz has joined right-leaning Israel advocates in trying to turn the tables on him by linking the journalist to Frazier Glenn Miller, the suspect in Sunday’s deadly shooting at two Jewish centers in Kansas City.
Jodi Rudoren, the New York Times Jerusalem Bureau Chief, has been remiss in her Gaza coverage so Ira Glunts was surprised by her article titled, “Mideast Tensions Sideline a Gazan Marathon Runner.” It featured the video at the top on The Times’ web site and was mostly free of the “balancing” Israeli government point-of-view which always seems to be prominent in the newspaper’s articles about Palestinians.
Jerome Slater reviews Simon Schama’s PBS documentary “The Story of the Jews,” and says Schama’s emotionalism, strong but not necessarily persuasive beliefs, and tendency to oversimplify or, worse, ignore inconvenient facts, creates serious problem when he takes on Zionism, the establishment of Israel, and the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The Jewish Daily Forward’s coverage of the Scarlett Johansson-SodaStream affair betrayed Jewish and progressive values, write activists Donna Nevel and Rebecca Vilkomerson. It was deeply dissapointing hat the Forward’s coverage of this issue was inaccurate, sloppy, and unprincipled.
Haaretz columnist and author Ari Shavit has gone all in on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a “Jewish state.” And if you read his new book My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel, you’ll understand why. Shavit is a devoted proponent of liberal Zionism, an ideology that pushes a peace agreement to save Israel’s Jewish character in the face of what they call “demographic threats.”
Right-wing news outlets and Israel lobby groups have mounted a concerted campaign over the past few days to attack students leading the call for divestment at the University of Michigan (UM). The latest attack smears a student over a photo, the meaning of which was distorted by a neoconservative news outlet.
NY Times should apologize for publishing Palestinians ‘have avowed as their goal the killing of all Jews’
Ira Glunts calls on readers to send a letter to Margaret Sullivan, the Public Editor of The New York Times, asking the paper to apologize for printing slanderous letter in the New York Times Book Review.
The Israeli Government Advertising Agency, known for promoting tourism, is paying a journalist $61,800 to cover Pope Francis’s upcoming visit.
In the New York Times Jodi Rudoren reports on the debate happening within West Bank Palestinian families on the way forward – one state or two?
SodaStream starlet Scarlett Johansson parrots company’s CEO in accusing Oxfam of funding the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.
Review of recent ‘NYT’ corrections raises doubts about paper’s commitment to getting the facts right in Israel/Palestine
A review of some recent cases of New York Times “corrections,” raises serious doubts about the paper’s commitment to getting the facts right in its reporting on Palestine and Israel.
Tuesday evening The New York Times posted a new article by Landler and Rudoren covering Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech that day at the AIPAC convention, entitled Netanyahu Promotes Efforts Toward a Peace Deal. While the title of the article and the portrayal of Netanyahu as a possible peacemaker are disingenuous given his record and the vitriolic content of his speech, the article’s content related to BDS represents a marked improvement over the two previous, very poor BDS-focused articles by Landler and Rudoren.
A letter to the New York Times Public Editor on the strong predominance of anti-boycott views in The New York Times’ two most recent news articles about the movement to boycott Israel.
In The New York Times, Palestinian land has become something else again. It is not the State of Palestine, not simply Palestine, not the occupied Palestinian territories and not really Israel either. It is all murkier than that.
On February 12th, Jodi Rudoren argued in a New York Times article against the Palestinian-led Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, imploring readers to consider Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position that BDS is “immoral”. If we take their claims at face value, than it behooves us to ask why so many Americans consider BDS a moral tool to protest Israeli policies?
