MSNBC Contributor Slams Network For Pro-Israel Coverage: ‘We Are Ridiculous!’
July 21 2014

An MSNBC contributor used her appearance on the cable news channel Monday to sharply criticize its coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict.


During an interview on “Ronan Farrow Daily,” Palestinian journalist Rula Jebreal unloaded on Western media outlets, including MSNBC, arguing that influence from pro-Israel forces makes the news coverage more favorable to the likes of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Because of AIPAC, and because of the money behind it, and because of Sheldon Adelson, and because of all of us in the media. We are ridiculous. We are disgustingly biased when it comes to this issue," Jebreal said.
"Look at how many airtime Netanyahu and his folks have on air on a daily basis. Andrea Mitchell and others," she continued, referring to the MSNBC stalwart whose show airs right before Farrow’s afternoon program. "I never see one Palestinian being interviewed on theses same issues."
When Farrow pushed back gently and pointed out that Palestinian guests have been interviewed, Jebreal continued her criticism.
"Maybe 30 seconds! And then you have 25 minutes for Bibi Netanyahu, and then half an hour for Naftali Bennett and many others," Jebreal said.
Jebreal wasn’t done. She went on to call out NBC News for the recent kerfuffle surrounding Ayman Mohyeldin, the foreign correspondent who was abruptly pulled off the network’s coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict last week.
Mohyeldin was eventually sent back to Gaza this weekend after his removal from the region — which NBC said was due to security concerns — sparked a fierce public backlash.
Jebreal, it turns out, is among the critics who believes Mohyeldin was taken off the story for political reasons.
"Listen, the Ayman Mohyeldin story, let’s talk about this. We are home and we can discuss this. Ayman Mohyeldin is covering the Palestinian side and we get upset," she said. "It’s too pro-Palestinian. We don’t like it. We push him back and thanks for social media that brought him in."
The criticism clearly made Farrow uncomfortable, and he could only respond to Jebreal’s points with a vague counter.
"Point taken, but doesn’t it reveal equally our thinking that we now have Ayman Mohyeldin on air and I think there’s been very fair and balanced coverage?" he said.
"Yes, thanks to social media, and thanks for the pushback from the public opinion," Jebreal responded. "And I’m not saying that everybody is like this, but it’s one-tenth is given to the Palestinian voice and 99 percent of the Israelis voice. And that’s why the public opinion is pro-Israeli, which is the opposite in the rest of the world."

Hi there! I do not agree with the two-state solution and believe Palestine should be returned to the indigenous population, however, When others ask me what would happen to the Jewish population, I have trouble forming a coherent response and was wondering if you had any thoughts and/or info on where I could read more about this. Thanks!!

redphilistine:

Ali Abunimah has had a lot to say about this. You can start with this article titled “Israeli Jews and the One-State Solution,” and he’s written a book called One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse that outlines what a one-state solution would look like.

Look, the only thing I’m sure of is that zionism and apartheid in Palestine will fall. Exactly how it will fall is still up to history. I’m not really interested in engaging in hypotheticals. It’s more important imho to focus on what is happening to Palestinians now and how these violations of their rights must end. Discussions about what may or may not happen 5, 10, 20 years has its uses, but don’t let yourself get bogged down trying to predict the exact course of events or having to defend against something that hasn’t even begun to happen.

Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.

Watch the biopic movie where Helen Mirren plays Ayn Rand, The Passion of Ayn Rand. She was into some really weird stuff, like mind-controlling her followers to have sex with other people. Peter Fonda plays her husband that she’s also cheating on with a younger guy while trying to bully him (Peter Fonda) into being more sexual dominant in the bedroom. This is a… unique horror movie.

Whenever somebody refers to “tumblr” as some unified group in a negative way on here I’m automatically suspicious of what they say because 99% of the time “tumblr” is just a thinly-veiled codeword for “the marginalised people on tumblr I don’t like” and the person in question is trying to hide their misogyny/transphobia/transmisogyny/racism/ableism/etc by removing the labels of people they’re referring to. Essentially, it’s used in a similar fashion to the term “social justice warrior,” as a way of depersonalising members of marginalised groups.

and its a silly codeword because huge groups of people on tumblr are actually incredibly apologist towards things like racism, transmisogyny, ableism, misogyny, cissexism, heterosexism, classism etc.

like i’ve heard plenty of people say stuff like, ‘culture appropriation is a made up phrase doesn’t exist outside of tumblr’ or ‘get your tumblr politics out of here’ — like, people don’t seem to understand that these things do not exist solely on ‘the vacuum that is tumblr’. they’re just trivializing any and all marginalized group’s experiences by just saying it’s ‘a tumblr thing’ and the real world apparently does not deal with any of this.

it freaks me out when people say shit like that tbh, like i was attending rallies and involved in local politics and reading feminist lit and active in feminist spaces several years before tumblr even came about and i know for a fact many other people are too, but it also seems like people just talking about their lives get coercively labelled as activists or w/e even when they don’t apply that label to themselves anyway. Plus like, there’s such a diversity of opinion here idk what ‘tumblr social justice’ even means.

Wow sucks that there are no trigger warnings in real life.

oh my god thank you for this.

i was one of the student writers that was sourced in the New York Times about trigger warnings, since I did an op-ed about using them at Rutgers. and I was interviewed about it for BBC/HuffPost/Chronicle of Higher Ed/etc. My interviewers always ask the same ignorant question, “why trigger warnings now?? why start this thing?? they’ve never existed before, so why start this precedent?”

look the fuck around you, they’re LITERALLY everywhere. they’re on imdb. they’re on video games (and very effective too, ESRB and PEGI are extremely informative). they’re at the top left of every TV show with things like “mature language” or “violence” abbreviated below the recommended age.

even before ESRB, video games like Wolfenstein 3D had them for graphic violence. and even before tumblr, listservs and usernet forums use to use them all the time from every subject under the sun (sports listservs used them just as much as feminist listservs, if not more-so). even today, you can find things like “NSFW” and “NSFL” on reddit.

people have been embracing trigger warnings for years, they just don’t call them trigger warnings. stop acting like trigger warnings are an abomination that don’t work in real life. not just do they work very well, but chances are you’ve used them since you were a kid, and still use them today to look at what content is in the shows you wanna watch and the video games you wanna play.

CASTING CALL: POC GENDERQUEER / NON-BINARY FEMME

This is a casting call for a paid role. Check below the “Read More” line for the actual casting call. Please help us spread the word!

Watching our own pilot, something became apparent. While our show has POC actors, all were of lighter complexion, and we hadn’t created space for actors with darker skin tones. That meant we weren’t creating a show that our whole audience could see themselves in. That didn’t sit right.

Addie is a new role that we’ve added to the show. They’re a genderqueer POC (of darker complexion). At the start of the show, Addie and Su work together. Su moves on, but their lives intersect every once in a while.

Addie has a scene early on where they’re still presenting as a man, but in subsequent scenes are living out as a genderqueer / non-binary femme. Their role in the first season is limited, but their story stretches into future seasons.

Our casting call is below the “Read More” line. Please help us spread the word! This is an important opportunity for QTPOC actors!
