The mainstream media tiptoe around Israel, even when it shoots their own journalists | The Canary


On 19 November, the Israeli military allegedly shot Associated Press journalist Rashed Rashid and wounded a further 24 Palestinians in Gaza.

Although the Israeli military frequently shoots civilians near the Israeli-Palestinian border, the sentence above is rare within the mainstream media. Because all too often in mainstream coverage, victims of Israeli aggression mysteriously ‘get shot’ or ‘die’ – with no mention of the perpetrator. And even after Israel shot an Associated Press journalist, the Associated Press is now doing the same thing.

Rashed Rashid

Rashid’s colleagues said that the gunfire came from the Israeli side of the border.
