The Pro-Israeli Media Twist

by | May 26, 2009 | Stress Blog

Jonathan Broder is a CQ Weekly journalist who was on CSPAN yesterday along with Washington Times journalist Eli Lake discussing Obama’s defense and foriegn policy objectives. A lady calls in complaining of the cost of defense, and asks if our objectives could be more easily met if Israel could be made to work out a peaceful solution for the Palestinians. Taking the question, Broder puts the burden on the Arabs for refusing to ‘make peace with Israel’. The frustration is not just the reality that it is the Israeli’s who have and hold all of the cards to peace, but that the pro-Israeli US press continues to spin these issues in favor of Israel, even if, as in this case, it puts their work at odds with the facts.
