Why Mideast reporting is skewed–Haaretz interviews Matti Friedman and others

Matti Friedman’s Tablet article about how Western media have bought into the Palestinian narrative and are distorting coverage of the region as a result has made major waves. Now even Haaretz, once Israel’s best newspaper, but now no more than a trumpet for extremist Israel-bashers, has interviewed Matti and others about the distortions, which Haaretz itself plays into every day. I’m in this article, too–look for “furious.” That’s me. Matti left AP as a result of this. I got myself transferred from Jerusalem to Cairo, resulting in my book plus two years of mental health.
