He said/ she said so much easier than thinking

“But The New York Times journalist, whose job it is to deliver the facts, does not mention the evidence which blows Palestinian alleged witness claims out of the water and which also belies Ashrawi’s unfounded allegation: the televised footage of Sider running with the knife.”

Hey, print journalists scorn the TV types. Video-schmideo. We all know how video can be doctored, right? Not nearly as easy as the print version, however, it must be said. Eh, NYTimes?

Those “civilian” death totals

The Obamalamadingdong administration and the Democrat news media in general solemnly intone the figure of the day-week-month, now over 1,000 and  counting and usually adds that 75 percent or more are Palestinian civilians. How do they know they’re civilians? Hamas tells them so.

The IDF, by contrast, only says it knows that “hundreds” of them are Hamas soldiers.

“How does the [NY]Times keep such an accurate count of Palestinian deaths? A footnote discloses ‘Palestinian death tallies are provided by the Palestinian Health Ministry and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.’

OK. So who runs the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza? Hamas does. As for the U.N., it gets its data mainly from two Palestinian agitprop NGOs, one of which, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, offers the remarkably precise statistic that, as of July 27, exactly 82% of deaths in Gaza have been civilians. Curiously, during the 2008-09 Gaza war, the center also reported an 82% civilian casualty rate.”

Leave it to CAMERA to vet these suspect figures. CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting (good luck with that), analyzed the ages and genders of fatalities reported by the Palestinians in Gaza during the Israeli military operation from July 7 through July 26.

Their findings: the largest portion were young males between 17 and 30 years old...”and a particularly noticeable spike occurs between males ages 21 to 27, a pattern consistent with the age distribution typically found among combatants and military conscripts… adult female fatalities were less than 10% of total fatalities for a group that comprises a quarter of the total population.”

Remember that the next time you see a talking head pull a face and intone the latest Hamas-provided figures.

UPDATE:  Reminds me of the old Nightline’s intoning: “Day [a number], America Held Hostage” which brought down the Carter administration. This time it encourages Hamas’ use of human shields.

Send a map to Jeff Fager

Fager? Oh, he’s the chairman of cBS Snooze and executive producer of their really tedious (when it’s not wildly biased) Sunday segment 60 Minutes.

Is Bethlehem surrounded by Israel’s security wall, making Christ’s birthplace “an open-air prison”? So reported 60 Minutes. But a map clearly shows no wall to the south or east.

Fager, one of the poobahs of disgraced anchorman Dan Rather’s (“fake but accurate”) network, refuses to correct the mistake, however.

So as CAMERA. org says we should all get together and send a map to Fager.

I remember the days when people like Fager had a monopoly on “the truth,” when there was no Internet and so no easy way to rebut their mendacity. I don’t miss those days, but I bet Fager does. I’m sure Dan Rather does. Heh.

UPDATE:  While you’re sending a map to Fager at cBS, send a clue to the other alphabet snooze “shows.” They won’t report facts that interfere with their narrative on climate change.
