Author Unplugs The Guardian’s SpinOctober 28, 2012 12:51 by Pesach Benson
This says a lot about The Guardian. An op-ed by Benjamin Pogrund, a prominent anti-apartheid activist who made aliyah took Haaretz to task for its controversial apartheid survey.
Pogrund’s point is that the media over-spun the story against Israel. But an ironic editors note at the bottom confirms The Guardian’s contribution to the problem — the original headline was twisted against Pogrund’s very point:
The original headline of this article, “Israel is hostile towards Arabs, but it is not an apartheid state”, was changed at 17:46 on 26 October 2012 at the request of the author.
So after Pogrund unspun Haaretz, he had to unpleasantly unspin The Guardian as well.
