The Honest Report podcast episode 14: The media’s lopsided coverage of Jerusalem Day

June 17, 2021

Each year since 1968, Israel has celebrated Jerusalem Day, commemorating the liberation of the city from Jordanian occupation. And each year, a march with flags is a highlight of the day.

And like clockwork, Israelis waving flags is called a provocation by the news media, arguing that Jews waving flags needlessly provokes Hamas into killing Jews. This is untrue, is a form of victim blaming, and the news media must do better.
