While the media is busy, once again, caterwauling about racism, bigotry from its own members doesn’t get any attention.
Former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill claimed that news outlets like NBC and ABC were “Zionist organizations” that produced “Zionist content,” during a panel on Friday at the annual Netroots Nation summit held by progressive activists in Philadelphia.
He made his comments during a panel on “embedding Palestinian rights in the 2020 agenda,” which also featured statements that Israel was engaged in a “white supremacist” project.
“They’re like, I want to work for Fox, or I want to work for ABC or NBC or whoever. I want to tell these stories,” he said. “You have to make choices about where you want to work. And if you work for a Zionist organization, you’re going to get Zionist content. And no matter how vigorous you are in the newsroom, there are going to be two, three, four, 17, or maybe one powerful person — not going to suggest a conspiracy — all news outlets have a point of a view. And if your point of view competes with the point of view of the institution, you’re going to have challenges.”
Claiming that the media is run by the Jews is actually white supremacist rhetoric. But as Farrakhan and Neo-Nazis remind us, there’s overlap.
NBC and ABC are about as Zionist as Hill is. Their reports repeatedly attack Israel and support Islamic terrorists. But what Hill is getting at is that it’s all a Jewish conspiracy.
Meanwhile a petition circulating in his defense claims that he’s the victim of “pressure from right wing leaders and the Jewish establishment”.
Of course Netroots, the Left and the media are good with all this.
Anti-Semitism is being embedded deeper and deeper within the Dems.
