New York Times Anti-Palestinian Bias

by Stephen Lendman

Times' editors spurn Palestinian rights.

On April 4, The New York Times headlined "Palestinian Defiance on Display at West Bank Funerals." 

It discussed their anger in response to Israeli murder by torture and medical neglect. The Times didn't explain. More on that below.

According to New York TimesThink, Palestine isn't occupied. Gaza isn't besieged. The Nakba never happened. Israeli settlements are legitimate. Israel's more victim than aggressor. 

Palestinians choose conflict over peace. They're responsible for their own misery. They don't deserve self-determination and UN membership.

NYT pro-Israeli bias is palpable. It's longstanding. It's distorted and one-sided. It blames Palestinians for Israeli crimes. It ignores its own ethical policy stating:

"The Core Purpose of The New York Times Company is to 'enhance society by creating, collecting and distributing high-quality news, information and entertainment.' " 

"The central place of our news and editorial units in fulfilling that promise is underscored by the No. 1 statement in our Core Values: 'Content of the highest quality and integrity: This is the basis for our reputation and the means by which we fulfill the public trust and our customers' expectations.' "

"(O)ur goal is to cover the news impartially and to treat readers, news sources, advertisers and all parts of our society fairly and openly, and to be seen as doing so." 

"The reputation of our company rests upon that perception, and so do the professional reputations of its staff members."

"In keeping with its solemn responsibilities under the First Amendment, our company strives to maintain the highest standard of journalistic ethics. It is confident that its staff members share that goal."

A previous article discussed institutionalized Israeli barbarity. It explained murdering Palestinian political prisoners by torture and medical neglect. It covered justifiable Palestinian anger.

Resisting occupation harshness is legitimate. So are street protests for any reason. Haaretz correspondent Amira Hass defended stone throwing. She did so responsibly.
