White And The Big Lie Technique.

with 2 comments

Jonathan Hoffman has replied to Ben White’s rejoiner.

There is quite a lot to take in, but one thing is clear White does employ, as Hoffman argues, the Big Lie technique.

White seemingly buttresses his position using doctored quotes and plenty of dog whistles.

What is all the more surprising is that White claims to be a journalist and one of the key attributes of quality journalism is fact checking.

It should have been elementary to check and check again these quotes.

White should have known that the Internet and other places is littered with false quotes which are attributed to Jews, and/or Israeli leaders. Still worse was the role of War on Want and Pluto Press, who should have independently proof read and verified this contentious material.

White has no excuse for his perverse behaviour, but then again neither do those organisations which push his lies.

The Guardian, War on Want and Pluto Press are equally to blame for the dissemination of this pernicious material.
