After spending the first two days of this week painting the Jewish state of Israel as cold-blooded killers for defending their border from violent assaulters content with killing them, the evening broadcasts of the liberal major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) finally moved on from the topic Wednesday. But the timing was suspect since earlier in the day, Hamas official Salah Bardawil boasted about how 50 of the 62 people killed were members of the terrorist organization.
The New York Times has been heavily criticized for its blatantly anti-Israeli coverage of the deadly protest in Gaza, after the terrorist group Hamas urged Palestinian civilians to rush the fence guarding Israel’s border from attack. The disparity continued on Wednesday’s front page, “Israelis Reflect: ‘I Hope at Least That Each Bullet Was Justified.’” Reporters Isabel Kershner and David Halbfinger reported from a kibbutz close to the conflict, near the “open-air prison” that they call Gaza.
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN was doing its part to push anti-Israel spin as co-host Chris Cuomo not only called the killing of Palestinian Arab agitators by the Israeli Defense Forces an "atrocity," but correspondent Ben Wedeman pushed the view that the IDF did not act with "restraint."
In addition to siding with violent Palestinian border assaulters during Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, the network had anchor Jeff Glor sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu where he tried to grill the leader on his county’s military response. But despite Glor’s best efforts, Netanyahu schooled him on what it was like to be a country surrounded by enemies that want to see you destroyed.
For two days now, the liberal media’s anti-Israel smears have grown wilder and arguably begun to border on something more. The Tuesday evening broadcasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were no exception as they mourned with the Palestinians on the day they call the “catastrophe,” or the anniversary of Israel’s creation.
What’s happened to The Onion? The satirical news site on Monday and Tuesday descended into the muck of anti-Israel hatred. The Onion published three vile articles sliming the country as blood-thirsty killers of women and babies.
The liberal Twitterverse has been having another meltdown over the U.S. embassy moving to Jerusalem. Now many of them are continuing their narrative of Trump as head of a mob family, whose political ties to Israel, another totalitarian regime, are putting the poor Palestinian people at risk.
Following Monday’s ceremony opening the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, all three broadcast networks were eager to denigrate the move and blame the United States and Israel for violence in the Gaza Strip that was encouraged by Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. In a series of dramatically one-sided reports, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows offered propaganda instead of news.
On Tuesday's New Day, CNN political analyst David Gregory again showed himself to be one of the very few journalists in the liberal media who will actually make an effort to inform viewers of Palestinian intransigence and hostility toward the existence of a Jewish state in the Middle East. As he substitute hosted the show and interviewed former PLO official Diana Buttu about the violent protests in Gaza, Gregory repeatedly brought up Hamas's desire to take over Israel rather than co-exist.
Two of the three major news networks have been feeding into the pro-hamas, anti-Israel/anti-Trump propaganda this week. Both ABC and NBC’s evening news segments showed blatant bias towards the violent protesters in Gaza during the official unveiling of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, completely disregarding Hamas’s history of manufacturing casualties real and fake to bring international condemnation on Israel.
New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg’s virulently anti-Israel rant Tuesday, “A Grotesque Spectacle in Jerusalem,” was topped with this text box: “A celebration -- and a massacre.” She got truly vicious in Tuesday’s piece, keyed to the deadly protest in Gaza, as the terrorist group Hamas urged Palestinian civilians to rush the fence guarding Israel from attack, some armed with explosives, with predictably deadly results for the Palestinian attackers. Goldberg didn’t see it that way, blaming the celebratory moving of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, a “grotesque” event attended by Ivanka Trump.
In online news, there's "clickbait," a sensational headline which doesn't reflect the underlying story. The New York Daily News took that concept into the front page of its Tuesday print edition. Its headline — "DADDY'S LITTLE GHOUL" — included a photo of Ivanka Trump. The underlying article mentioned her only once in passing. We should call this "printbait."
