Pro-Israel bias in the US media — Democracy Now interview

I had the privilege of going on Democracy Now today to discuss pro-Israel bias in the US media.

Jane Hirschmann of the activist group Jews Say No! and I were invited on to talk about a parody issue of The New York Times her group and Jewish Voice for Peace — New York created in order to protest the leading newspaper’s Israel-Palestine coverage.

I detailed the story in my Salon article “Progressive Jewish groups make New York Times parody issue to protest newspaper’s ‘biased Israel-Palestine coverage’.”

The segment, titled “Jewish Peace Groups Reveal Role in Spoof New York Times That Criticized Paper’s Stance on Israel,” can be watched below.

A transcript of our comments can also be found at Democracy Now’s website.
