The Forward:
"One of the largest Jewish charities in the U.S. has been secretly funding a shadowy online blacklist targeting college students who criticize Israel.

For three years, a website called Canary Mission has spread fear among undergraduate activists, posting more than a thousand political dossiers on student supporters of Palestinian rights. The dossiers are meant to harm students’ job prospects, and have been used in interrogations by Israeli security officials.

At the same time, the website has gone to great lengths to hide the digital and financial trail connecting it to its donors and staff. Registered through a secrecy service, the site is untraceable."

-->One would think that this brazen attack on American college students would be at least covered by the NYT. The one reference to the Canary Mission in the NYT offered was written by a confirmed Zionist whose husband writes propaganda for the state of Israel.

FAIR:
"Three years ago, as Americans debated the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran—popularly known as 'the Iran deal'—I highlighted a troubling media trend on FAIR.org (8/20/15): 'For nearly all commentators, regardless of their position, war is the only alternative to that position.' ...

To experience the full menu of US media’s single-mindedness about Iran, one need only buy a subscription to the New York Times. After Trump withdrew from the JCPOA, the Times’ editorial board (5/8/18) wrote that his move would 'lay conditions for a possible wider war in the Middle East.' Susan Rice (New York Times, 5/8/18), President Barack Obama’s national security advisor, agreed: 'We could face the choice of going to war or acquiescing to a nuclear-armed Iran,' she warned. Cartoonist Patrick Chappatte (New York Times, 5/10/18) was characteristically more direct, penning an image of Trump alongside Bolton, holding a fictitious new agreement featuring the singular, ultimate word: 'WAR.' ”

-->Yes, our national media keeps pushing for war, especially the NYT. No wonder our nation has been at war for 17 years and is fighting in over 7 countries. And assassinating "enemy terrorists" in God knows how many more.
