CBS News’ ‘Hatchet Job’ on Israel →

talkstraight:

CBS News is drawing fire from pro-Israel activists and even the Israeli government for airing what critics say is a grossly distorted report on the migration of Christians from Israel.

The media is so entrenched in their Leftism…. they show no shame anymore, as they don’t even recognize their own bias. Because… all they do is hang out with each other and can’t imagine another point of view, let alone the truth. Because Truth is not a value on the Left… getting their message out is.

To Reuters, they aren’t just “Jewish settlers” anymore

First there were “settlers.” But that wasn’t inciting enough. So we then had “Jewish settlers.” But with overuse, it didn’t bring in the hate that journalists wanted to bring across. So then came “Right-wing Jewish settlers.” But even that didn’t capture the seething disgust that objective journalists wanted to convey towards them. So now we have, from Daylife/Reuters:

So people who live in a house in Jerusalem are “extreme right-wing Jewish settlers.”  But the people who throw rocks at them, literally spilling their blood, are simply “pro-Palestinian activists.” Not “violent protesters.” Not “left-wing terrorists.”  Not “anti-Zionist  provocateurs.” Not “pro-Palestinian stone-throwers.” Not “rioters.”  Nope, they are peaceful supporters of Palestinian Arabs, mere  “activists” - who throw stones at people they don’t like. And who can blame them:? After years of reading Reuters describing these  Jews in such terms, who wouldn’t want to throw stones at them? To Reuters, it’s the people who are being hit by rocks who are “extreme.”
