MSM Concerned For Israel's Image
Since when was the media concerned about Israel's image to the world? Reporting the MSM's legal efforts to enter Gaza, McClatchy News correspondent Dion Nissenbaum writes:
This week, after filing a letter of protest, the Foreign Press Association (of which McClatchy Newspapers is a part) took the matter to Israel's Supreme Court and asked the judges to overturn the ban.
"This blackout of the Gaza Strip is hurting Israel's image in the eyes of the world and undermines its standing as the only democracy in the Middle East," the FPA argues in the petition.
Soccer Dad's reaction hits the nail on the head:
I understand that there are reasons for Israel to open Gaza to reporters, but this false concern for Israel's image from a press association strikes me as utter hypocrisy.
