“Approximately 47% of all articles label Israel an ‘apartheid’ state.”
This is not surprising, considering the Harvard Crimson’s sickening support for the BDS movement.

ANALYSIS: 92% of Harvard newspaper’s Israel reporting has negative bias
A Campus Reform analysis of the Harvard student publication The Harvard Crimson found that 92% of reported news articles relating to Israel from the past four years have a negative slant.
Campus Reform examined 44 Crimson articles about Israel published between Apr. 16, 2018, and May 11, 2022.
Approximately 47% of all articles label Israel an “apartheid” state. Nineteen articles were opinion pieces and approximately 58% of those were negative of Israel.
Approximately 77% of all articles – both opinion and reported news – were negative of Israel.
On Apr. 29, the Crimson editorial board declared itself pro-Palestine and announced support for the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The board openly admitted that the Harvard College Palestine Solidarity Committee (PSC) “forced” the members to “wrestle with what both Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have called Israel’s ‘crimes against humanity.'”
The board went on to strengthen their commitment to “PSC’s mission and activism” and publicly declared support for a spring semester art display sponsored by PSC titled the “Wall of Resistance.”
The wall was displayed during the group’s annual “Israeli Apartheid Week” and called for BDS action.
“We do not take this decision lightly. BDS remains a blunt approach, one with the potential to backfire or prompt collateral damage in the form of economic hurt,” the editorial board wrote.
“But the weight of this moment — of Israel’s human rights and international law violations and of Palestine’s cry for freedom — demands this step. As a board, we are proud to finally lend our support to both Palestinian liberation and BDS — and we call on everyone to do the same.”
