Anti-Israel Journalism in the Globe and Mail

Globe and Mail Reporter Engages in Anti-Israel Advocacy Journalism (October 20, 2010)
Patrick Martin’s anti-Israel advocacy reporting must be challenged.

News reporters are duty bound to avoid expressing their subjective viewpoint or willfully promoting social & political causes. Yet sometimes reporters’ opinions and agendas, whether conscious or unconscious, are revealed in their news coverage.

Instead of doing straightforward reporting, some reporters use the public platforms of the media outlets they work for to slip in their own thoughts, frame a story’s narrative in a particular light, use partisan language, or use unreliable sources in the pursuit of advocacy journalism.

A recent violator of the most basic precepts of neutral and objective reporting comes from the Globe and Mail’s Mideast bureau chief, Patrick Martin, for his engagement in anti-Israel advocacy journalism.
