WRMEA’s Delinda Hanley explains media bias on Middle East on CNI Radio

Filed under: Uncategorized — frederickbutler @ 2:03 pm
On March 11th, the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) news editor and executive director Delinda Hanley joined CNI board member and host Alison Weir on CNIF’s internet-radio show, CNI: Jerusalem Calling, to discuss the bias against Muslims in today’s media.
“The Palestinian issue is not in the press. Gaza is not in the press. It’s just not on the radar and it’s because the press is not covering it,” said Handley.  “Reporters have go to ‘Counterpuch’ and other internet press to get coverage. Their stories never get published in mainstream media and it is despicable.”

For the past 28 years the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs Magazine has worked to bring its readers balanced reports on U.S. foreign policy, the Middle East, and the Muslim world.

  1. Sometimes, the US looks like a despotism in which news unfavorable to the powers-that-be is censored out. For decades, the pro-Israel bunch has exercised insidious censorship over the media. Not only that, the media often has an extremely derogatory view of Arabs or muslims. Many times, cartoons have portrayed them in ways which would provoke a firestorm if jews were targeted. Inasmuch as arabs are semites, it seems that anti-semitism is greatly encouraged in this society after all–provided the only semites being slighted are Arabs.
