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.' "
