Vote for This Year’s Dishonest ReporterNovember 22, 2011 14:09 by Pesach Benson
Now’s the time to vote for the 2011 Dishonest Reporting Awards — our annual recognition of the year’s most skewed and biased coverage of Israel and the Mideast conflict.
Please choose one of the three nominees below, along with a brief explanation why it deserves to receive our ignoble award. (You may also nominate someone else not on the list).
There are three ways to vote:
- Post a comment below
- Post a comment on HonestReporting’s Facebook page
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Nominees (in no particular order)
LA Times: For a staff-editorial which blamed settlements for the Itamar massacre, in which a three-month old baby, two small children and their parents were brutally murdered.
Reuters: For redefining terror after a fatal Jerusalem bombing.
The Guardian: For it’s very active role in the PaliLeaks affair, Deborah Orr‘s anti-Semitic take on the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap, a staff-editorial misrepresenting the UN’s Goldstone report, and a laundry list of other reasons.
We’ll announce the ignoble “winner” in a few weeks.
