Jews control the media, says former Guardian editor

A revolting post by Peter Preston on Comment is Free, His theme is that, unlike our wonderful media, the American media are Israeli propagandists:

In general, with the New York Post, the Daily News and all the usual suspects cheerleading away, there was no balance, no fairness and precious little you could call independent thought.

Let's, for a second, accept his premise. Why might it be that the American media are thus? 

Tel Aviv seemed to bark orders: the US media just wagged its tail.

Ah, yes, of course, those Jews. They run everything, and control the media.

Peter Preston and the BNP. Joined at the 'Jews run the media' hip.

It would never occur to the likes of Peter Preston that the American media might simply be more willing to take a rounded virew of the Middle East, and accept that Israel has a right to defend itself.

This is typical "straw man argument". Peter Preston doesn't mention either the words "Jews" or "Control" at all in his article.

I don't remember you supporting the FRY's right to defend itself aganst the KLA.

I was distubed by the statement that Jews Control the Media.

As observer of the British scene through the internet I am very shocked at the anti-Israell outpourings that I read from some of the British Press. and the BBC.

How do they away with it.

The hectoring of BBC World news presenters when interviewing IsraeliGovernment representatives is very obvious of where their sympathies lie.

What is it about the electronic media when reporting from the Middle East to use local stringers to give them information and they become propagandists for their cause.

Cant Westersn journalists see this.?

Their naivite is pathetic.i

Far from the Media being controlled by Jews, the opposte is that Muslim Fundamentalist use the Media for their own ends . Arab and Iranian Oil Money talks.

From a former Brit now a Canadian Observere. .

What do you expect? The Guardian are the modern equivalent of Der Strummer and no doubt would be clamouring to praise Hitler as they do other murderers and fascists like Mugabe, Chavez and the like. The Guardian is only good for using as toilet paper or lining under the dogs bowl.

This is a good example of the way that Israel has managed to frame the debate on the conflict in the West, so that even moderate voices like Peter Preston or the BBC are hysterically attacked as anti Israeli or anti-semitic. None of this, is in the long term intrest of Israel.
