TNYT handling of this news story provides further evidence that it deceptively slants all coverage of Israel, even the minutest squib, to make Israel look better than it is, to conceal its fundamental state terrorism from most readers.
The print edition front page on Tuesday Nov 12, 2018, for example, featured a strongly worded summary of the story, which read, in its entirety: “Israelis and Militants Trade Fire — After a botched raid, Gaza militants launched a sustained attack on Israel, and Israel aircraft struck back. page A9”. Clearly this summary was designed to convey the false impression to the majority of readers who will not follow thru to the full article that the aggressors of the botched raid were Palestinians, whereas in undisputed fact they were Israeli troops.
How can TNYT complain about the Trump administration promulgating falsehoods, like the doctored Acosta video, when it constantly does the same regarding Israel? Isn’t it obvious that the above summary would be comparable to writing, “After a failed lunge for the microphone, Acosta launched an aggressive question at the President who struck back with harsh criticism”? Doctored syntax used to make partial truth function as a lie.
Will TNYT ever stop functioning as an organ of Israeli propaganda? TNYT yellow journalism in the service of Israel deprives the American people of the accurate information we need, and should be able to count on from our self-styled ‘newspaper of record’, preventing us from making the decisions that are in America’s best interests. FAKE NEWS.
