Don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya…
I hope he winds up at a Walmart one hour photo kiosk.

Perhaps he’ll end up in the same dustbin as Mr. Rather. One can hope.

Good work sending him in that direction!

In charge of cropping, no doubt.

Regrettably, Reuters will probably reward him with a new bureau assignment where he can invert reality in another part of the world.

Rearranging deck chairs or the beginning of a true house cleaning where it isn’t just the bureau chief that got sacked, but others who were responsible for the editorial decisions that have proven themselves to be utterly biased and in violation of Reuters guidelines and policy.

1) a refusal to take responsibility for factual errors, 2) a tendency to cherry-pick survey data to support his own political views, 3) repeated efforts to downplay and whitewash Palestinian violence, 4) systematic bias in favor of the Arabs, 5) reference to racist epithets to support his pro-Arab bias, 6) reliance on libelous information sources, 7) the use of spurious “man bites dog” stories in an effort to demonize Jews, 8) willful omission of highly newsworthy stories that undermine Palestinian image-making, 9) the parroting of Palestinian propaganda, 10) selective amnesia on the historical facts along with a host of false assertions, and 11) the scandalous publication on his watch, of doctored photos in violation of the Reuters Handbook

Those are resume highlights for the MSM jobseeker.

re: #6 lawhawk

There are two or three correspondents in their Jerusalem bureau — Heller, Fisher-Ilan — that have been cranking out anti-Israel agitprop literally for decades. Heller is the editor-in-charge. Things will not improve materially until these characters move on.

How does a tiny state like Israel survive against such systemic bias and demonisation?

Macleans.ca observation on the tendency to deny Jews the right to any home anywhere. …Sigh.

Long excerpt follows:

North Korea sinks a South Korean ship; hundreds of thousands of people die in the Sudan; millions die in the Congo. But 10 men die at the hands of Israeli commandos and it dominates the news day in, day out for weeks, with UN resolutions, international investigations, calls for boycotts, and every Western prime minister and foreign minister expected to rise in parliament and express the outrage of the international community.
Odd. But why?

Because Israel is supposed to be up for grabs in a way that the Congo, Sudan or even North Korea aren’t. Only the Jewish state attracts an intellectually respectable movement querying its very existence, and insisting that, after 62 years of independence, that issue is still not resolved.

[snip]

The “Palestinian question” is a land dispute, but not in the sense of a boundary-line argument between two Ontario farmers. Rather, it represents the coming together of two psychoses. Islam is a one-way street. Once you’re in the Dar al-Islam, that’s it; there’s no checkout desk. They take land, they hold it, forever.

[snip]

To this fierce Islamic imperialism, the new Europeans, post-Christian, post-nationalist and postmodern as they are, nevertheless bring one of their oldest prejudices—that in the modern world as much as in medieval Christendom Jews can never be accorded full property rights. On a patch of the Holy Land, they are certainly the current leaseholders, but they will never have recognized legal title. To be sure, there are a lot of them there right now. But then there were a lot of them in Tangiers and Baghdad and the Bukovina and Germany and Poland, for a while. Why shouldn’t Tel Aviv one day be just another city with some crumbling cemeteries and a few elderly Jews?

That’s the reason the “Palestinian question” is never settled. Because, as long as it’s unresolved, then Israel’s legitimacy is unsettled, too.

Still, the impatience of the new globalized Judenhass is now palpable. I used to think that, when Iran got the bomb, it wouldn’t use it. I wouldn’t take that bet now. The new anti-Semitism is a Euro-Islamic fusion so universal, so irrational and so fevered that it’s foolish to assume any limits.


The whole thing well worth the read.

Faith and military might. Faith that the truth will out. Military might in case it doesn’t.
