The Guardian And Ben White’s Substandard Journalism.
How the Guardian has changed, from being a leading provincial newspaper to becoming a national periodical, a bastion of good liberal values. That’s what it was like once, but nowadays if you want to see what anti-Jewish racists are saying you don’t need to surreptitiously slip in to the back of a Far Right meeting held in a dingy Pub, or visit one of the many neo-Nazi forums on the Internet.
No, none of that is necessary.
Not only does the Guardian provide an outlet for the Far Right, neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers, it also commissions articles from various journalists who are renowned for having a certain chip on their shoulders, and Ben White is one of those, for sure.
Ben White has made much of his supposed expertise on the Middle East, and in particular Israel.
So it is with his latest attempt, to malign Israelis and paint them as the worst possible inhabitants of the Middle East, and in that he failed.
I do wish the Guardian would return to its old values and stop being the home of anti-Jewish racism amongst the chattering classes.
