National Public Radio reports from Israel/Palestine are biased towards Israel

Anyone who thinks that the National Public Radio’s international correspondent in Jerusalem, Daniel Estrin, is giving them unbiased reports is sadly mistaken. Estrin’s slant is subtle, not always as obvious as his counterparts at the New York Times, but a quick look at his recent work is revealing.

Let’s start with Estrin’s March 15 report, back when Benny Gantz had a chance to form a coalition government that would have ended Benjamin Netanyahu’s reign. Estrin noted that Gantz considered building a minority government dependent on the Joint List, the group of parties that won overwhelming support from the 20 percent of Israelis of Palestinian background. He reported that Netanyahu tried to block the prospective government by calling the Joint List “terror sympathizers,” and, for good measure, he added a statement from Netanyahu’s Likud party that also described them as “terror supporters.”
