Reuters Conceals Questions About Credibility of "Expert" Falk

A Reuters story today refers to several UN "experts" who disagreed with the conclusions of the UN Palmer Report, which found that Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip is legal and a reasonable military necessity.

What the reporter doesn't tell you is that the expert quoted in the piece, Richard Falk, a radical anti-Israel activist and 9/11 conspiracy theorist, has had his integrity and credibility questioned by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the U.S. representative to the Human Rights Council, the former UN ambassador to the UN, the UK and the NGO UN Watch, among others. (Details here.)

Reuters doesn't bother to alert readers about these questions — not even with the understated word "controversial." He is, supposedly, just an "expert."
