Posted Jan. 10, 2024: Analysis shows New York Times, other major newspapers heavily biased their coverage towards Israel: An analysis of over 1,000 articles showed major US newspapers and cable news disproportionately emphasized Israeli deaths in the conflict that has killed 22,000 Palestinians; used emotive language to describe the killings of Israelis, but not Palestinians; and offered lopsided coverage of antisemitic acts in the US, while largely ignoring anti-Muslim racism in the wake of the Hamas terror attacks on October 7. We cannot lose sight of the fact that there are humans suffering greatly on BOTH sides of the conflict, and we deserve to have news coverage that recognizes that — especially since American bombs and taxpayer dollars are helping fuel the fighting.
