Guardian opposed US attack on Syria in 2013; Now says inaction led to more bloodshed. Fails to admit error.

The Guardian’s diplomatic editor Julian Borger weighed in on the US debate over the Iran deal in a July 31st article titled ‘The looming August battle for the Iran nuclear deal‘. Borger […]
What factors determine whether a racist comment is reported by the British media? Certainly, the stature of the person uttering the offensive comment would seem relevant. That’s why we often see media […]
In the context of the Guardian’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, the word “rightwinger” is essentially meaningless, as it is often merely a pejorative meant to signify views their contributors personally find […]
It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for “progressive” anti-Zionists. First, Barack Obama, during his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg last week, clearly suggested that denying Israel’s right to exist is antisemitic. More […]

The Economist fancies itself a centrist magazine, one which provides “authoritative insight and opinion” to its 1.4 million subscribers, and stands in opposition to “privilege, pomposity and predictability”. On Israel, however, it […]
Before turning to the latest example of a Guardian contributor accusing Jews or Israel of controlling Western foreign policy, here’s a brief review of such problematic language over the past few years […]
