U.S. mainstream media coverage of the Trump-Israel effort to goad Iran into conflict is sparse and biased

Here’s continuing bias at the New York Times: the paper is downplaying the Trump administration’s efforts to provoke conflict with Iran — but when it does obliquely report on the danger it relies far too much on quotes from the “Foundation for Defense of Democracies,” a Washington, D.C. “think tank” that is actually a bellicose front organization for Israel. The Times gives disproportionate space to the FDD’s warmongering, instead of quoting distinguished experts, Iranians and others, who counsel diplomacy and restraint.

Neither the Times nor the Washington Post has yet reported Donald Trump’s extraordinary October 9 public statement, in which he used an expletive to threaten Iran that “if you do something bad to us, we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.” Neither paper would have buried Trump’s quote if he had been talking about his Supreme Court nominee or the COVID-19 pandemic.
