Crooks and Liars, MSNBC, The Diane Rehm Show, Terri Gross’s Fresh Air, Npr’s Talk of the Nation Silent on Aipac Conference, Netanyahu’s “Jerusalem is Israel’s Capitol Comment and the Four Palestinian Teenagers who were Killed by the IDF this Week.
Went through the archives over at Crooks and Liars for this week as well as the archives over at The Diane Rehm Show, Talk of the Nation, the Ed Show, Chris Matthews, Terri Gross’s Fresh Air, Keith Olbermann’s and Rachel Maddows. Not one report or thread (at Crooks and Liars) about Netanyahu’s Aipac speech this week where he claimed "Jerusalem is Israel’s capitol" and many other false claims. Not a mention of another announcement by Israel on the very day that Netanyahu was meeting with Obama that new housing units would be built in illegally occupied East Jerusalem. Not a mention of the four Palestinian teenagers brutally killed by the IDF. Not a mention of the protest in reaction to these killings or of the thousands of Palestinian mourners who marched in the streets carrying the bodies of these young Palestinian men shot down by the Israeli army. Silence at all of those media outlets. Silence.
Just like there has been silence at all of those media outlets when it came to the Goldstone Report.
Can you imagine what our news outlets would do if four Israeli teenagers had been shot down by Palestinians this week. The coverage would be endless. Endless.
Until our MSM covers this conflict fairly. Nothing will change. Nothing.
