The bent of the Dutch broadcasting corporation

The writer of At The Back of the Hill (a blog) has asked me to post some links about the Dutch news broadcaster NOS (Nederlandse Omroep Stichting), and he sent me a report that showed a pattern of omisions, distortions and manipulation from reporter Sander Van Hoorn and the NOS.

Israel's Gaza war in Dutch state-funded media

NOS-journaal manipuleerde nieuws Gaza oorlog (report in Dutch)

This isn't a surprise. Newspapers simplify complex issues, how much more so broadcasters - viewers have a more superficial attention span than readers.
And most European newsorganizations on the internet have a stick up their lower digestive tract about Israel. Perhaps Europeans resent Jews who defend themselves better than the European governments ever did. Plus the Palestinians seem to make many Europeans all warm inside.

Thanks for posting it, Snooky.

And thank you also, Gromperetcetera P.

No, no lacy garments changed hands. Get your mind out of the gutter. Not that panties are in the gutter, of course.

I am several stories above the gutter, my good man. Far above your environs.

You, good sir, are the perverse deviant. I am merely a devotee.
