The Los Angeles Times abandons the pretext of objectivity

The Los Angeles Times has been anything but objective when it comes to the subject of Israel. At its absolute best, it is occasionally neutral. Most of the time, it follows the "Palestinian Narrative" to the letter. However, as reported by Camera, it has now abandoned any effort to appear even remotely interested in actual facts, instead spewing out Palestinian proganda which is completely unconnected to reality: http://camera.org/index.asp?x_context=2&x_outlet=33&x_article=1417.

I know that I have some readers in the L.A. area, so to you I direct this question: WHY do you read this newspaper? If you're reading my blog, odds are that you agree at least in a general sense with what I have to say on the subject of Israel. The Los Angeles Times proves everyday that it has picked a side in this war, and it is not the Israeli side. It really doesn't merit your support, or anyone else's for that matter.

The big newspapers remain the country's main source of news and reporting, even with the liberal bias.

I've always enjoyed reading LAT. I just sift through the bias in the front-page stories, and I simply quit reading the editorials. Once in a while they'll run some good conservative commentary on the op-ed page, but it's getting rare.

Hope you're having a great holiday!
