"Danger in Ignorance"

An op-ed in the Jerusalem Post draws attention to problems in the American media, and highlights the importance of holding news organizations to task. (The column also provides a good historical overview of the situation in Israel.)

The attack on Israel's legitimacy is widening because US Jews, like most other Americans, get much of their information about the Middle East conflict from an ideologically slanted media – The New York Times, CNN and National Public Radio, to name a few. And the pro-Israel community lacks enough knowledge to overcome the bias.
