A primer on media bias

This primer is a practical exercise. There are two parts to complete.

The first part is this piece from the New York Times: Is This Where the Third Intifada Will Start?

I bet you are thinking warm, cuddly thoughts about these peacemakers in Nabi Saleh.

Ok. Time to move on.

The second part is this piece from the Malki Foundation: A little village in the hills, and the monsters it spawns.

I bet you are no longer thinking those same warm, cuddly thoughts. Now, how do you feel about the situation? And what do you think about Ben Ehrenreich and the New York Times?

If you want more detail, look here for the follow up letters the New York Times decided to print about that article. Then read the Malki Foundation follow up, here.

My heart bleeds for the Roth family. I am not prepared to share my thoughts about Ehrenreich and the New York Times.
