NY Times continues with moral equations

A Blog for All finds the ultra-establishment New York Times continuing with its disgraceful obsession with moral equivalency, blurring the differences between good and evil. The headline of the article alone shows what's wrong with it: "New Israeli-Palestinian Violence Puts Truce in Doubt"

As Lawhawk says:
What cease fire? Israel has repeatedly been attacked by Palestinian terrorists month after month. Sure, some of them have not resulted in casualties, but why should that be the indication? The terrorists have been trying to kill Israelis at every opportunity. Terrorists have repeatedly fired missiles and rockets into Israeli territory hoping to kill Israelis. Only luck and the poor aim of the terrorists have resulted in limited Israeli casualties.

Israel responds to all the attacks with what must be done - killing the terrorists before they can strike again. That's why they've killed terrorists getting ready to deploy more missiles to strike at Israel or going after the terrorist leaders themselves.
Correct. There is no genuine truce, and that the NY Times should be acting oblivious to the fact that the terrorists' actions are wrong, is simply disgraceful. In fact, they've done something similar when it comes to the Iraq war, partly by describing the terrorists there as "insurgents". Papers like them, and even TV stations like CNN, do not deserve and audience if that's how they've going to cover the news.

Great post. Hell, even the BUSH Administration deserves blame for the continuing "moral equivalence" game by REFUSING TO APPLY the Bush Doctrine to the Palestinian terrorists -- and even more tellingly, for preventing the Israelis from applying their own version of the "Bush Doctrine" to their own backyard terrorists. Sadly, even conservative spokesmen such as Limbaugh seem to be giving Bush a bit of a free ride on this issue, as well.

Agreed... I was actually most surprised by 'even' CNN - I've found them to be the most openly left of the bunch.

Thanks. This reminds me, I sure wish I could find a blog or a site specially dedicated to focusing on CNN's own news biases, in almost the same way that Biased-BBC, NY Times Watch, and the Washington Post Watch focus on the biases of those particular news sources. With any luck, something like that will come soon.

If you have the time for it, do it yourself - perhaps not on this blog, but on a new one. Once it picks up, people will start submitting, saving you the time.
