Skip to comments.Inaccurate, biased reporting on Obama-Abbas meeting
Posted on 06/10/2010 6:03:45 PM PDT by Nachum
In its June 10 edition, the Washington Post runs an article by Michael Shear about President Obama's meeting with Palestinian Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in the White House. The article is both inaccurate about Obama's pledge of more aid to the Palestinians and also biased with its total silence about a strong disagreement between the two leaders about continued anti-Israel incitement by the Palestinian Authority ("Obama seeks new approach on Gaza -- He calls for Israeli blockade to consider aid as well as security" page A9).
Shear writes that the White House announced "that it was increasing aid to Gaza by $400 million." Not true. By far, the lion's share of the $400 million is earmarked for the West Bank where Abbas still holds on to power. Also, of the $400 million, less than $100 million represents a new U.S. commitment. Thus, Shear's report that the entire $400 million is earmarked for Gaza doesn't hold water.

I don't think that accurate reporting, "Terrorist Abbas and terrorist-lover Obama met to discuss plans for Israel's weakening and eventual destruction" would meet the media's goals. Helen Thomas spoke for the majority of the White House press corps, but they know that the American people don't agree.
The Compost, ‘nuff said.
