Gish Katif Media Coverage

Why is so much energy being wasted complaining about the media coverage of Gush Katif? What's the matter with people? (especially, with Cross Currents who posted 3 times on the subject of how awful the NYT is, even as Jews were still being dragged out of their homes) The coverage was not bad, as those of us who actually read the newspaper understand.

If you doubt me, go to the NYT webpage, and see for yourself. Start with the slide shows, and the pictures but before you go, be sure to read ""The Dispossessed" which ran Sunday on the op-ed page.

It is perfectly simplistic to say the Times in particular, or the MSM in general is anti-Israel, which is why it is the sort of statement made most often by simple people.
