“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):

An incredible bit of editorializing dressed up as journalism in the Washington Post (h/t@EWErickson).
I double-checked because I couldn't believe this passage came from a straight news article. I suspected it came from the opinion section. I suspected incorrectly. pic.twitter.com/cxkATcu6e7

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.
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.
