National Public Radio's (NPR) Pro-Israeli Bias
By Stephen Lendman
29 April, 2010
  «Since [being] established in 1970, NPR ignored its public trust in favor of privilege, corporatism, militarism, imperial wars, and Israel's vilest crimes, including collective punishment, illegal occupation, targeted killings, land theft, dispossessions, home demolitions, crop destruction, mass incarcerations, torture, violence, and the 2008-09 Gaza war inflicting mass deaths, permanent injuries, vast devastation, and human misery against defenseless civilians, imprisoned under siege since June 2007, and afflicted by a dire humanitarian crisis as a result - exacerbated by conflict and intermittent attacks, issues NPR ignores or understates.

It's notorious for its biased, shoddy reporting, pseudo-journalism, creeping commercialism, distracting non-news, and deceiving listeners [that] it's public, non-profit, and impartial. Savvy media consumers know better and tune them out for delivering the same slanted coverage found on major networks and in broadsheets like The New York Times, Washington Post, and others - grossly favoring power, and when it comes to Israel [only] its [Israel's] interests matter. Palestinian ones don't, so news is carefully filtered to distort facts, and report lies that when repeated enough become truths.»

Comment 1: I suspect that Lendman was a bit angry when he wrote the above; my (helpful) insertions are marked [like this]. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure that you, dear reader, will easily (and sadly) see the obvious answer to my quasi-rhetorical headline query.

Comment 2: The US so-called 'democracy' is filthily crippled by the "Israel Lobby;" a tiny minority which by dint of dollars (campaign contributions) plus emotional blackmail (any/all opponents get screamed at: "Anti-semitic!" or (if Jewish): "Self-hater!") - that Israel Lobby seems to effectively control the US govt.. (The Lobby likes to say: "The US congress is Israeli territory.") Properly functioning democracy is *supposed* to be government for the majority (by, of the people), whilst respecting minorities. Since this particular (ugly! Criminal!) minority is actually alien to both the US and the ME killing-grounds they have invaded and now brutally occupy, one can hardly understand why so many gutless US politicians (traitorously!) cave in. So what's Aus' miserable excuse?
