AP badly distorted its inquiry into Gaza deaths: research

No one needs to to surprised that the AP analysis of Gaza deaths in last summer’s war is badly gazadistorted and slanted. It follows a pattern that started more than a decade ago, and is one of the reasons I exiled myself from the AP Jerusalem bureau and moved to Cairo for two years to wind up my career. In this extensive article, journalist-turned-media-critic Richard Behar takes apart the AP analysis stone by stone and shows the underlying tendencies of Western media in general and AP in particular to believe the Palestinians, even Hamas, and reject the Israelis as liars. That, in fact, is the essence of a quote in his article from another journalist-turned-media-critic–me.
