'sound for sound': we need to be as loud with the truth

we need to find a way to minimize the importance given to these media to the point of not even quoting them anymore than we'd quote porn magazines - the likes of the New York Times, the BBC, Toronto Star, etc. and make people aware they are nothing more than trash & gossip much like the National Inquirer is viewed --- I thought by now 'the world knows' the BBC is junk, trash, mental pollution at best

Yet More

Another aspect of this headline is that it also leaves the impression that 2 other Palestinians were killed, rather than Jews. Please all click onto the HonestReporting website and sign the petition protesting this travesty!

Not in the slightest bit surprised...

... not at all, Rabbi..
I've watched BBC News for many years now, and at one time you couldn't have found a more comparable excellent news service, but, alas, gradually and almost imperceptibly, things started to change until nowadays we refer to it as the "Biased Broadcasting Corporation" and rightly so.. Whether or not it is anti-Semitism, or just plain ignorance, I wouldn't like to say, but I do know what I tend to lean towards, and it's not the latter.. I find it sad that such a formerly renowned organisation as the BBC should nowadays have stooped so low regarding the amount of bias I am hearing whenever Israel is in the news... That is on the occasions that it does actually decide to mention Israel !!!.... Keith, UK

NEEDED!: Truthful journalists "on the job"/publishing as quickly!

As long as it is "working" for Israeli enemies, this inexcusable corruption in journalism will continue! Alternative (immediate) coverage MUST be developed to get BOTH headlines out
at the same time! Let`s step it UP!

Eretz Nehederet

The title Rav Salomon quoted remind me of this:

The famous Israeli comedy show made parody long time ago about BBC reporting but we all know that today "journalist" are selling sensation just like Hollywood. The morality has been eaten by political correctness so all is permitted. Sadly antisemitism is omnipresent, ...nothing new on Earth !!

Fed up with the antiisraeli reports ?

The answer is to act. And the more we are the better.

Dear Rabbi Salomon,
As a UK resident, born and raised in Scotland, alas, I know this stance from the BBC all too well. They are notorious for it. and as they are the only tv station which is a publicly funded corporation, via the licence fee, which has to be paid regardless of whether or not one actually watches BBC, it's all the more breathtakingly arrogant, wrong, and....words Im too polite to express here.
Thank you for highlighting this; and as you say, although it was removed, damage was already done. Subtle and 'fly' as the saying in my home town Glasgow goes(meaning sneaky)
