The New York Times vs. Reality, Israeli Opinion Edition

“Israelis See Netanyahu Trip as Diplomatic Failure,” says the headline on this New York Times dispatch. It’s based entirely on quoting left-leaning commentators; in a couple cases they characterize them as “centrist,” but in the Israeli context (where the left-wing parties, largely discredited by events, have mostly whithered) this means supporters of Kadima, the leading opposition party against Netanyahu’s center-right coalition.

Cut to Haaretz (a left-leaning paper which runs some very left-wing columnists), where you’ll find this headline: “Haaretz poll: Netanyahu’s popularity soaring following Washington trip.” The story’s deck notes that “the public seems to be turning a deaf ear to analysts who criticized Netanyahu’s address to Congress.”

Perhaps the Times shouldn’t pretend that said analysts speak for all Israelis.
