01/06/11 – Danny Schechter – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jan 6, 2011 | Interviews

Danny Schechter, executive editor of MediaChannel.org, discusses his new article that revisits journalist Helen Thomas’s career-ending Israel gaffe; how selective quotation from the ‘gotcha‘ clip turned Thomas’s poorly phrased response into ‘proof’ of her anti-Semitism; the media hit pieces, gloating about Thomas’s exile, that make clear there is little tolerance in Washington for Israel-critics; and Schechter’s firsthand account — while working for ABC News in 1982 — of an Israeli campaign to stop the airing of an investigative news story about the West Bank.
