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.
