Conrad Black: Jewish-Owned Media ‘Habitually anti-Israel’

The Jewish-owned American media don’t treat Israel fairly, says former newspaper publisher turned author Conrad Black.

Black, writing in the National Review, expresses agreement with a Twitter posting from News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch earlier this month that read, “Why Is Jewish owned press so consistently anti-Israel in every crisis?” Murdoch subsequently apologized after the tweet sparked heated criticism.

“Rupert Murdoch and I have had our differences over many years, but I must join with him entirely in his recent tweeted complaint that most American media outlets that are controlled by Jews seem to be reflexively, or at least habitually, anti-Israel,” Black writes.

“For mentioning this notorious fact, Murdoch was lambasted by the usual suspects, led by the New York Times.”

But The Times doesn’t have a stellar record on its Israel coverage, Black says.

"There has long been a tendency among some Jewish American media leaders to downplay their own Jewishness, as if being a Jew connoted no racial aspect, any more than being a Presbyterian does, and to urge upon Israel an endless turning of the other cheek," he writes. "The New York Times should not be unduly singled out, but as the country’s most influential newspaper, in the hands of the Ochs-Sulzberger families for over 115 years, it is conspicuous, and it has been consistent."
