The eagle—eyed Mediacrity blog has caught the New York Times editing out a reference to Palestinian failures to live up to responsibilities in the "road map" that was part of the Oslo Agreement:
In an item yesterday, I described how the New York Times —— in a seeming reversal of its longstanding policy —— had cited dismantling terrorist groups as a Palestinian obligation under the Road Map for Peace. The Times usually dismisses this crucial responsibility, which the Pals haven't even attempted to carry out, as an Israeli or American "demand."
Well, guess what? The Times deleted from the print edition the reference to the Road Map that had appeared in an early version of the story, by Times reporter Greg Myres, that it posted on the web at about 2 p.m., Eastern time, yesterday.
There's nothing like an ideological filter that insists on blaming Israel and the United States, and never hold the Paliestinians accountable. The Times is exposed for the blatant propagandizers they are, on the Middle East.
