Very interesting. For my money, Ha'aretz is the best paper covering the Israel-Palestine situation. They actually seem a lot less biased towards any one side than the American papers, and certainly have more balanced coverage than the Jerusalem Post. Although I would have to say their English translation is not always great. The Hebrew is far better, but obviously not many people can read that.

The Perils and Responsibili...

The Perils and Responsibilities of Covering the Mideast War: Interesting excerpt in Sunday's L.A. Times of a recent lecture given by Ha'aretz Editor in Chief Hanoch Marmari. He starts with a breakdown of the Jenin Massacre hype, and then goes on to deliver a farily impressive explanation & self-criticism of trying to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. If anyone has a link to the entire speech, in English, please drop it into the comments section.
