‘NYT’ coverage of the Human Rights Watch ‘Apartheid’ report is a game-changer

Having grown up in a secular liberal Jewish family in and around New York City, I’ve been reading the New York Times daily since I was a kid – take it from me, that’s a long time. Since I started speaking out about the Israeli oppression of Palestinians after Operation Protective Edge in 2014, I’ve come […]

Tom Friedman’s foundation supports pro-Israel causes, including Islamophobic MEMRI (but he won’t tell you that)

It’s not news to anyone who follows the Israel/Palestine issue that the top foreign policy columnist at the New York Times takes a side. “Israel had me at hello,” Tom Friedman said in September 2019 at a New York temple. He said he’s worried that the next generation of Times columnists won’t be as reflexively […]

The ‘NY Times’ article on Human Rights Watch ‘apartheid’ report is largely an attack on the finding

Normally, the New York Times trusts Human Rights Watch and relies on the organization often. This April alone, for instance, the Times has already cited the group 12 times, using its expertise on rights violations in places as varied as Myanmar, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. But the Times’s respectful view disappeared suddenly yesterday — after Human […]

U.S. mainstream media hides or downplays Jewish supremacists who just carried out a ‘pogrom’ in Jerusalem

Last night, in the heart of Jerusalem, hundreds of Jewish supremacists, chanting “Death to Arabs,” attacked Palestinian passers-by; some 78 Palestinians were injured and 15 were hospitalized. IfNotNow, the activist organization of young American Jews, called the attacks “a pogrom.” In a surprise, the New York Times did report on the attack. Isabel Kershner’s article […]

The ‘NY Times’ is whitewashing Israel’s efforts to sabotage the Iran nuclear deal

Even veteran observers of the New York Times’s zeal to protect Israel’s reputation will be astonished at the paper’s latest whitewash. The paper just published a long, sensible editorial endorsing the U.S. return to the Iran nuclear deal — without once mentioning Benjamin Netanyahu’s violent efforts to sabotage the agreement. Yesterday’s lead editorial in the […]

‘NYT’ coverage of happy boars of Haifa is just another way to ignore settlers’ crimes

On April 9, 2021 The New York Times published a half tongue-in-cheek, half serious article titled “Where Boars Hog the Streets” by Patrick Kingsley. It opens with a photo of a large mama boar crossing a Haifa street with eight baby boars and a waiting driver laughing.  This is not a laughing manner on so […]

Netanyahu’s desperation could prompt him to sabotage the Vienna talks to restore the Iran nuclear deal

Benjamin Netanyahu is desperate. His first corruption trial has already started; he’s struggling to form a government that might keep him out of jail; even observers who recognize his past ability to squirm out of trouble think he may finally have come to the end of the line.  As the talks continue in Vienna to […]

Thomas Friedman ignores ‘apartheid’ label, says Israel is ‘idealistic’ just like the U.S.

Thomas Friedman just wrote a column about Israel for The New York Times that says the Palestinian issue doesn’t matter. “[T]he Arab-Israel conflict for Israel… has largely disappeared,” he says. Israel is in the same boat as the U.S., building a diverse “idealistic” country in the face of rightwing trends. This approach by the leading […]

Federal Judge Accuses New York Times, Washington Post of ‘Shocking’ Bias Against Republicans

Judge Laurence Silberman accused the New York Times and Washington Post of being “Democratic Party broadsheets” in a dissenting opinion on Friday. Washington, DC, federal appellate judge Laurence Silberman accused the New York Times and Washington Post, and to some extent the Wall Street Journal, of being mouthpieces for “rather shocking” bias against the Republican […]

Does the ‘NY Times’ prohibit its reporters from making the connection between U.S. hostility to Iran and Israel?

It’s become monotonous. The New York Times runs a report on U.S.-Iran relations, including the sparring over the nuclear deal — and the paper leaves out the Israel angle entirely. The latest example the other day was headlined: “Impasse Over Iran Nuclear Talks Sets Off International Scramble to Save Accord.” The article, in addition to […]

NYT Fails To Examine Its Participation In Brazil’s ‘Biggest Judicial Scandal’

ACTION ALERT: You can send a message to the New York Times at letters@nytimes.com (Twitter: @NYTimes). Please remember that respectful communication is the most effective. The Brazilian Supreme Court on March 8 dismissed all charges against former President Luis Inacio “Lula” da Silva made during the Lava Jato investigation, a little over a month after the investigation was officially ended. The […]

U.S. media must follow up Israeli general’s endorsement of Iran nuclear deal

A retired Israeli major general just published an extraordinary opinion piece endorsing the Iran nuclear deal — and if the Jerusalem correspondents for the New York Times and other mainstream media outlets do their job his article could profoundly change the terms of the debate. Major General Yair Golan was the deputy chief of the […]

Cornel West says Harvard donors establish ‘taboo’ on criticism of Israel (and NYT buries that angle)

You have surely heard the news from late February that Cornel West was denied tenure at Harvard and has attributed the rejection to his support for Palestinian freedom. West, 67, a philosophy professor in the Divinity School who has gotten wide faculty and graduate-student support, made the allegation to scholar Tricia Rose on the Tight […]

‘NY Times’ erases Jewish Americans’ support for Israeli settlements

The New York Times just ran an article in which an Israeli documentary filmmaker asserts that “Evangelicals are the only significant power outside Israel that is openly supporting the settlements. No one else does.” This is simply not true. The Times reporter, David Halbfinger, accepts the assertion from filmmaker Maya Zinshtein even though he served […]

An open letter to the NYT on landmark ‘apartheid’ report

Palestinians are wondering why, after seven weeks, the New York Times never published reports of a leading, well-respected Israeli human rights organization’s January publication, “A Regime of Jewish Supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea: This is Apartheid.”  As papers of record, the Times’ readers deserve to learn of B’tselem’s report, its argument, […]

Tom Cotton Mocks Social Justice Warriors at New York Times in CPAC Speech

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Friday mocked “social justice warriors” at the New York Times and their “meltdown” this summer over his op-ed in the paper calling for troops to restore order during the rioting at the time. Speaking on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, Cotton recalled how hundreds […]

‘NY Times’ and ‘Washington Post’ have still said nothing about B’Tselem’s finding a month ago that Israel is an ‘apartheid regime’

One month after one of Israel’s leading human rights organizations declared that the country is ruled by an “apartheid” state, liberal Zionists in the U.S. are breathing more easily. The New York Times and the Washington Post have still published nothing on the landmark finding by the human rights group B’Tselem, nor have any of […]

‘NYT’ portrays pro-Palestinian activists as ‘strident’ and ‘orthodox’ in article on campus debate

The New York Times ran a long article about the campus debate over Israel that highlighted Zoom’s cancellation of talks by Leila Khaled, because she had participated in two hijackings 50 years ago. Titled, “What Zoom Does to Campus Conflicts Over Israel and Free Speech,” the article placed Palestinian activism outside the normal range of […]

‘NYT’ obit from Israel insists falsely that Jews can’t be Arabs

Last week Ronen Bergman, the Israeli reporter who does breathless accounts of Israeli spycraft in the New York Times, produced a long obituary for an Israeli spy Isaac Shoshan who died in December at 96. The article is a list of grievous acts of violence or attempted violence. Shoshan spoke Arabic and participated in several […]

The ‘NYT’ and ‘Washington Post’ cover up B’Tselem verdict, that Israel is an ‘apartheid regime’

Liberal Zionists open the New York Times these days with shivers of anxiety. Last week, Israel’s leading human rights group, B’Tselem, declared for the first time that Israel is an apartheid regime, a move that sent shock waves around the globe. Liberal Zionists know that if the “apartheid” designation spreads even more widely, they will […]

Citing ‘Beauty and Innocence,’ New York Times Puts Iran on ’52 Places to Love in 2021′ List

The headquarters of The New York Times. Photo: Wikimedia Commons.

‘NY Times’ gushes over Israeli vaccination program — with bare mention of millions of Palestinians left out

Once again, the Jerusalem bureau of the New York Times publishes pro-Israel propaganda instead of telling its readers the truth. This time, the dishonesty is about Israel’s coronavirus vaccination program. Here’s Isabel Kershner’s headline over the weekend: How Israel Became a World Leader in Vaccinating Against Covid-19 The lead sentence: “More than 10 percent of […]

‘NYT’ covers up Warnock flipflop under pressure from Israel lobby

The New York Times just ran a lengthy profile of the Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democratic candidate for the Senate in Georgia, that is propaganda for the Israel lobby. With a headline announcing that Warnock “Doesn’t Shy From ‘Uncomfortable’ Truths,” the article portrays Warnock as a bold progressive and covers up one of the big […]
