  1. The seeking by reporters of “making the big scoop” is a major influence on bias in interviewing a subject as well. This seeking for glory was aptly said by Hersh when he broke the story of the My Lai massacre of civilians by American soldiers during the Vietnamese war;
    “You think I wouldn’t sell my mother for My Lai? Gimme a break.”

    NYT executive editor, Max Frankel, on the pressure on the Pulitzer Prize board’s decision to give their reporter John Burns an award despite his not being recommended by the selection jury:
    “We didn’t hide our disappointment. we went around muttering about it…The advisory board, in its wisdom, reached around the jury.”

    Punch Sulzberger’s father was accused of deliberately burying accounts of Nazi atrocities against Jews in the back pages of the NYT during WW II. The Times has never apologized for that.

    The American Council for Judaism was formed in 1942 solely to fight the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine; one of its founding members was Arthur Hays Sulzberger

    Jill Abramson, new editor of the New York Times 2011 said,
    “In my house growing up, The Times substituted for religion. If The Times said it, it was the absolute truth.”

    READ “All The News Unfit To Print” by Eric Burns, expert media analyst, of how the Times inaccurately reports events.

  2. Michael Oren, Israel’ former ambassador to the U.S. called the New York Times editorial-page editor, Andrew Rosenthal, after the paper published an op-ed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in which Abbas startlingly claimed the Arabs had accepted the UN Partition Plan of 1947. The conversation went thus:

    “When I write for the Times, fact checkers examine every word I write,” I began. “Did anybody check that Abbas has his facts exactly backward?”

    “That’s your opinion,” Rosenthal replied.

    “I’m an historian, Andy, and there are opinions and there are facts. That the Arabs rejected partition and the Jews accepted it is an irrefutable fact.”

    Rosenthal smugly said, “In your view.”

    Oren then mockingly asked, “Tell me, on June 6, 1944, did Allied forces land or did they not land on Normandy Beach?”

    Rosenthal replied, “Some might say so.”

    These are the types of asinine comments by articulate ignoramuses covering up their anti-Israel or anti-Semitic biases.

  3. “If the WSJ is becoming biased like the NY Times, maybe people need to boycott it as well.”

    The WSJ has been biased since the day Rupert Murdoch bought it. You are just noticing now?
