Washington Post Ripped for Anti-Israel Rhetoric in Supposed Straight News Article

Washington Post Ripped for Anti-Israel Rhetoric in Supposed Straight News Article

“The terrorist-controlled Washington Post runs this statement as fact. Hamas has no greater friend in America than the employees of the Washington Post.”

As we’ve noted before, when it comes to insanely one-sided coverage of the Israel-Hamas war, few mainstream media outlets have been as obvious as the Washington Post. Two weeks ago, the paper yanked a cartoon depicting a Hamas spokesman using children as human shields because anti-Israel staffers and readers claimed it was “racist” and allegedly unfairly put most of the blame for civilian deaths on Hamas terrorists and not Israel.

We’re now close to a full two months into the fighting, and Hamas is still using as bait the hostages they took on October 7th during the terrorist attacks they launched against Israeli civilians. So far, 80 of the 240 hostages have been released in exchange for Palestinian prisoners, many of whom are likely to turn around and pick up right where they left off.

And though it is the Hamas terrorist organization who has repeatedly and unequivocally demonstrated their abject inhumanity and moral depravity throughout this war, the Washington Post continues to give them the benefit of the doubt, so much so that in an article on “internal divisions” in the Biden White House on the Israel-Gaza issue, the following claims were made by people we’ve been reliably informed are supposedly objective reporters (bolded emphasis added):

Adding to the sensitivity, the unwavering embrace of Israel that many staffers find upsetting stems in large part from Biden’s personal lifelong attachment to the Jewish state, aides said. Biden often cites his 1973 meeting with Prime Minister Golda Meir as a seminal event that crystallized his view of Israel as critical for Jewish survival.

At the time, Israel was 25 years old, a left-leaning nation and a military underdog, struggling to find its way in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Now Israel is a military powerhouse led by a far-right coalition, and the Biden administration has become identified with a military campaign that has killed more than 13,000 Palestinians, displaced hundreds of thousands of others, created a humanitarian disaster and damaged America’s moral authority in much of the world.

That is not straight news reporting in any way, shape, form, or fashion. That is straight-up biased editorializing and parroting of Hamas talking points disguised as “news.” Numbers from the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry are treated as factual, as is the claim of a “humanitarian disaster” (without noting that Hamas uses buildings like hospitals for operational and human shield purposes). And where the “damaged America’s moral authority” claim came from, I don’t know, unless they were quoting a House Hamas Caucus member anonymously or something.

Adams, as it turns out, had written a piece the very morning the Washington Post article went live, explaining that there was “something seriously wrong” with their Israel-Hamas war coverage:

Last weekend, for example, the Post published a report titled “Amid Gaza war, U.N. evacuates babies from besieged hospital,” which included a shocking claim: The Israeli army had deliberately targeted Doctors Without Borders convoys.

“Doctors Without Borders said Sunday that a staff member’s relative was killed and another wounded after Israeli forces fired ‘deliberately’ on a convoy carrying 140 of the organization’s employees and their family members the day before,” the Post reported. “The convoy was clearly marked, said the organization also known by its French acronym MSF, and both warring parties were notified of its passage.”

As Adams also noted, the paper had to issue a correction after publication to note that Doctors Without Borders did not in fact accuse Israel or anyone else of perpetrating the attack.

The Washington Post was also among the many media outlets that pounced on the “hospital bombing” story, running with information provided by the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry without verification:

Lastly, let’s not forget that the Post was one of the leading newsrooms that claimed, without evidence, that Israel had bombed al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza, leveling it and killing hundreds of civilians. The explosion, which happened in a nearby parking lot, wasn’t Israel’s doing, the hospital still stands, and the death toll was possibly as low as in the tens.

And as Newsbusters reported, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler seems hellbent on casting doubts on the beheaded babies stories but is still apparently okay with relying on Hamas sources when it comes to the alleged Gaza civilian death toll:

They’re telling us who they are again, and we should believe them.

Taking their cues from the Brits?

What’s the difference between the editor in chief at Washington Pist and a desperately addicted Washington DC homeless hooker?

One of them, for a fee, will write anything in the Washington Post, a former newspaper.

It would serve the conservative cause better if it ignored the blathering of hard left papers. They are read only by insiders, woke nuts, and those looking to be outraged.

    The Washington Post and NY Times steer the direction of the media on a national level. If the NY Times/WaPo prints something in the morning, the morning shows on the broadcast networks and your local media reports it that afternoon. This dynamic is amplified by Google and Apple News which selects key storys to push through their respective services via news alerts.

    If the larger public didn’t still consume most of their news on from the mainstream sources I just described, then NYT/WaPo wouldn’t be the problem they still are today. But, people. So, it’s CRITICAL that conservatives understand what lies these two influential newspapers are spreading everyday.

It is not possible to hold these people in higher contempt, but goodness knows they keep trying.

The WaPo tries to outdo the NYT in being a propaganda house for Hamas

Bezos’ Compost, Pravda on the Potomac, where the truth goes to die in darkness.

the worst part is that my SIL fervently believes, defends, and repeats everything she reads in the WaPo and the old Grey Lady
