CAMERA Op-Ed: "Why so many got the elections wrong"

In his op-ed published in The Jerusalem Post, CAMERA Senior Research Analyst Gilead Ini writes about the media coverage of the recent elections in Israel. He observes:

In short, caricaturing Israel makes it possible to caricature the Palestinians. The false diagnosis of an Israel veering uncontrollably to the Right helps sustain the fashionable but unhelpful view the Palestinians have no active role in the conflict, and no responsibility for its course. How straightforward it all is to Remnick: “Israel’s hard-liners harden further. The Palestinians grow more frustrated.”

This might be an easier story to tell, and it might be an easier story to believe. But it is not what readers want and deserve: a fair assessment of the conflict.

Politically correct statements are politically acceptable and sanctioned lies. That's what this editorial shows.
