I agree with the article, but I think more important than putting pressure on the Wolf Blitzers of the world is to pressure the new media (or at least equally important). Shows like Secular talk, the young Turks and the David Pakman show.
Of those three, Kyle Kulinsky of Secular Talk has become a lot better on Palestinian rights. His heart’s in the right place, I think he was just ignorant of the real situation previously. He’s now in favour of BDS but still calling for a twi state solution and unclear on the formation of Israel and the very racist nature of Zionism.
The young Turks are the same. Cenk is pretty good, but again not clear on the intrinsic racism of Israel, I believe he still thinks being a Jewish state can still somehow be a liberal idea.
David Pakman is terrible on this. He’s great in every other issue but blind to Israel. It must be pointed out to him again and again that what Richard Spencer and the alt-right want for the US is what Israel ‘is’ and has already done. He even had Spencer on his show who said he wanted a ‘white zionism’, Pakman changed the subject so fast!!
This is where the young millennials are getting their news and opinions not Wolf Blitzer
