Embassy of Israel

@IsraelinUSA

@ScottPelley @CBSEveningNews today's show ignored the 150+ rockets fired at Israel this week. No other state would accept a similar reality. 14 Nov 12

Conservatives aren’t shy about calling out American news networks for overlooking stories that doesn’t fit the liberal narrative, but the Embassy of Israel took to Twitter today to call out Scott Pelley and the CBS Evening News for not reporting on the rocket attacks on Israel this week.

CBS’s Mark Knoller notes that the rare occasion of a presidential news conference dominated the news cycle today.

STATE-RUN Media.

It is time to run ads against the Networks, against each “reporter” too.

If they want to participate and take sides in wars, and the political process...they also must be vetted, along with their families and their finances.

It’s easy to figure out whose side 0bama is on. Just watch what his media says, or doesn’t say.

It may be time to start an ‘investigate the reporter’ movement.

Any reason it’s only cbs? Surely the other alphabet channels followed 0’s anti-Israel script.

See BS. The FCC should revoke their license. (like when Hell freezes over.)

Any chance of having a conservative Alphabet channel, no, sorry all the frequencies are spoken for.

Yup, I have been saying, and writing this, for a long time now. These people need to personally be held accountable for the damage they have done to this country. Not enough bad things can happen to them!

We have an easy solution here. Ban CBS from entering or being in Israel. The other networks will get the message.

OOoooh! That’s a great idea. The White House plays that game with FOX. Israel try that game.

I suppose we can show our support of Israel by re-tweeting and Facebook-ing their stuff?

You have no ally, and you former friend is now the viper.

Israel works around the lamestream:

Israel Kills Hamas Leader, Instantly Posts It to YouTube



The Israel Defense Forces didn’t just kill Hamas military leader Ahmed al-Jabari on Wednesday as he was driving his car down the street in Gaza. They killed him and then instantly posted the strike to YouTube. Then they tweeted a warning to all of Jabari’s comrades: “We recommend that no Hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead.”

Yes, this should be done. We should no longer play like gentlemen. They are trashing our country.

Of the three main ‘anchors’ I dislike Pelley the most, by far.
Aside from his left lean his delivery drives me crazy.

I agree. I’ve said that for some time. We need to do expose on the “reporters” like where they were raised, where they went to school, what they studied, were they ever caught cheating on exams, what organizations they were in, how much they make, how they spend their money.

We will be like Nazi Germany if we don't. Seeing and hearing that Chicago newspaper reporter treat Obama like a lover should indicate just how far gone we are.

If you can find the video, watch Nancy Pelosi's response to Luke Russert's question about her age. That group of congress"women" on the dais were like hydra heads around the main dragon. It spoke with many mouths and writhed uncomfortably at the truth. Really creepy.

I recently heard a British talking head refer to them as “Resistance Rockets”.

Israel needs to send in some “Conductivity Containers” filled with fused munitions.

The US state run media has chosen sides in the conflict. And it’s not on the side of peaceful democracy.

Correct to target each reporter. This is one of the “Rules of Radicals.”
