‘NYT’ and State Department brazenly collaborate in Israel’s coverup of Abu Akleh killing

The State Department declares after examining the bullet that the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh was likely by an Israeli soldier but definitely not “intentional.” Really? The U.S. whitewash is brazen. It’s no surprise the State Department hoped Americans were too distracted by Fourth of July fireworks to pay attention. But why does the “New York […]

NY Times: Democrats Flip to Republican in ‘Political Upheaval’ of Border Towns

A couple of years after former President Trump made significant gains in often Hispanic-majority Democrat counties along the United States-Mexico border in Texas, a wave of Democrats in one particular community are switching parties to join the GOP. In Terrell County, Texas, the New York Times reports that multiple elected officials are opting to run […]

Tutu’s courage on Israeli apartheid is played down in obits in NYT, Washington Post and NPR

The Guardian has published an important eulogy to the late Desmond Tutu by Chris McGreal, saying what so many in the Palestinian solidarity community are saying: After fighting apartheid in South Africa, Tutu used his stature to call out apartheid in Israel and Palestine, and he paid a large price for doing so. Indeed, opposing […]

Washington Post Publishes Laughable Piece About Syrian Chemical Weapons Facilities

This Monday the Washington Post published a report, in their “national security” section, in which their “sources” claimed Israel had struck Syrian chemical weapons facilities, near the city of Homs. But instead of reading like a convincing piece of propaganda, the piece contradicts itself so many times that it leaves you wondering how it was […]

‘Settler violence is part of Israel’s official policy,’ experts say — but ‘Washington Post’ buries that angle

Earlier this month, the human rights group B’Tselem issued an important report titled, “State Business: Israel’s misappropriation of land in the West Bank through settler violence” that said the Israeli government “fully supports and assists” the spike in settler violence. Israel is using the settlers to widen the “Jewish-only space” on Palestinian lands, a process […]

Trump Calls on Pulitzer Prize Board to Rescind Awards to Washington Post, New York Times

Former President Donald Trump is calling on the Pulitzer Prize Board to rescind awards given in 2018 to the staffs of the New York Times and the Washington Post for their reporting that fueled the hoax that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. In a letter dated September […]

Washington Post Columnist Calls on CNN to Correct Its Dossier Reporting — After WaPo Corrects Its Own

A Washington Post columnist criticized CNN for not correcting its reporting that the dossier put together by Fusion GPS and ex-British spy Christopher Steele — which claimed the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia — was “corroborated.” The paper’s media critic, Erik Wemple, wrote Friday that CNN hosts and reporters had long-claimed the Steele dossier had […]

WaPo: CRT a ‘Phony’ Issue to Enrage Americans, GOP a ‘Party of Thugs’

Republicans create “phony” issues such as Critical Race Theory (CRT) to “enrage” Americans, according to a recent Washington Post piece which claimed conservatives “encourage thuggery” and must show a willingness “to be rude and crude” in order to establish bona fides, with right-wing criticisms of “friendly, old uncle Joe [Biden]” deemed “almost incidental” to the […]

‘Hall Monitor Energy’: Washington Post Editor Ruth Marcus Trolled for Saying She Lectured Random Stranger on Masks

Washington Post Columnist: ‘Rand Paul Was Right and Fauci Was Wrong’

A columnist for the Washington Post admitted on Tuesday that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was correct in Tuesday’s heated back and forth between the senator and Dr. Anthony Fauci over the White House chief medical adviser’s denial of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. “Hey guys,@RandPaul was […]

Washington Post Writer Claims Statue of Liberty a Symbol of ‘Hypocrisy’

Try looking for Lady Liberty at an exhibition of Chicano graphic art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, for example, where familiar images — flags, maps, military recruiting posters — are repurposed. You will find the statue almost or entirely absent. Maybe that’s because, compared with other icons of national identity, it is ambiguous and […]

Democracy Dies At The Washington Post Editorial Board

Above Photo: Antonio Cabrera. In the Soviet Union, everybody was aware that the media was controlled by the state. But in a corporate state like the U.S., a veneer of independence is still maintained, although trust in the media has been plummeting for years. Washington — The Washington Post’s glaring conflicts of interest have of late […]

Mainstream reports on Palestinian resistance in Sheikh Jarrah are unsurprisingly biased — but the ‘NY Times’ smuggles in some truths

It comes as no surprise that the U.S. (and British) mainstream media are ignoring or distorting the big and growing Palestinian resistance to evictions in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. But there is a sign of hope, as the New York Times correspondent did sneak some fairness into his report.  The mainstream media’s […]

Report: Liz Cheney ‘Orchestrated Unprecedented’ GOP Sabotage with WaPo on January 3

Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) reportedly “orchestrated unprecedented” Republican sabotage with the Washington Post against former President Donald Trump on January 3. The New Yorker published an essay Thursday in which Eric Edelman — a “friend” of Cheney’s and a former national security adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney’s father — said Liz Cheney “was […]

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 […]

Scalise on WaPo Tim Scott Article: Left Terrified of a Conservative Black Leader Who Doesn’t Push Left’s Narrative

On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) reacted to the Washington Post’s fact-check article on Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) family history by saying that “there is nothing that scares the left more than a conservative African American leader who’s gaining respect nationally, on his own, not pushing […]

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 […]

Judge Laurence Silberman accused the New York Times and Washington Post of being “Democratic Party broadsheets” in a dissenting opinion on Friday.

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 […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

Anti-Trump Scholar: ‘Nearly Impossible’ to ‘Deprogram’ Millions of Trump Supporters

On Monday, the Washington Post published an op-ed by columnist Brian Klaas whereby he expresses the near futility of attempting to “deprogram” millions of Trump supporters, claiming that many have “gone far enough down the rabbit hole of conspiratorial thinking.” The essay, titled “‘Why is it so hard to deprogram Trumpian conspiracy theorists?” depicts millions […]

Washington Post Deletes Embarrassing Anecdote from 2019 Kamala Harris Profile After Inauguration

Last week, the Washington Post excised a segment from one of its profiles of Vice President Kamala Harris originally published 18 months ago. Reason described the deletion as an attempt to “memory-hole Kamala Harris’s bad joke about inmates begging for food and water.” The original article, published July 23, 2019 — during then-Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) […]

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 […]

Hillary Clinton: Impeaching Trump Not Enough to ‘Remove White Supremacy from America’

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton described last Wednesday’s “attack on the Capitol” as a function of “white-supremacist grievances fueled by Donald Trump.”

‘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 […]

Coverage of Israel’s killing of Iranian scientist is marred by inaccuracy and inhumanity

The crisis triggered by Israel’s assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the Iranian nuclear scientist, continues, and more truths emerge:  * Israeli analysts are arguing that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not order the killing to protect Israel — but partly to distract attention from the multiple corruption scandals that surround him and to improve his chances […]
