Newsflash: Jerusalem Not on Fire!

The Palestinians declared a three-day-long “rage” spree over US President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Thus far, however, it seems that the real anger is showing up in the international media, not on the Palestinian street.

Question: How many foreign journalists does it take to cover the Palestinian reaction to Trump’s announcement? Answer: As many as the Israel-Palestinian-conflict-obsessed-West can manage to send.

The massive presence of the international media in Jerusalem and the West Bank has taken even the Palestinians by surprise. Since Trump’s announcement on December 6, dozens of additional journalists and camera crews have converged on Israel to cover “the big story.”

  • The behaviour of the Press today is reminiscent of the predictions of Canadian communications futurist Marshall McLuhan and his famous “the medium [media] IS the message”; And in the U.S. futurists such as Alvin Toffler who once used a “spy” metaphor to describe the future of electronic communications.

    Yup The Moflakes cranked out a few violent photo-ops then went home and watched cartoons on their UN purchased flatscreens.

    Led by CNN……The “most trusted name in news”…..will have “correspondents” such as Wolf Blitzer, Don Lemon, Cuomo and those other twits on that failing entity, breathlessly ranting about the Jerusalem situation and that this would NEVER have happened if Trump hadn’t followed Russia’s instructions. You know, the Russian conspiracy. And, of course, Hillary will rise from her coma to defend her horn dog husband and, after being told about the mid-east “crisis” will defend islam and blame Trump for everything, including the Los Angeles fires, her book sales slump and Ivanka Trump for her husband’s heavy breathing…..

    • The head of the EU, Junkforbrains, (or whatever the guy’s name is — can’t remember and don’t care), pretty much promised that he was going to start a worldwide media defamation campaign against Trump (ie read Israel) over the recognition of Jerusalem. He’s already lost round one.

    Here is from someone who knew better than anyone. Too bad his son is trying to undo the lessons his father knew.

    A major problem with all the media on all topics is the appalling ignorance of the reporters ,They know no History no Science Nothing but ill informed emotional out bursts. It is probably too late to save Communications in General, Most News outlets should be left to wither.There will always be communication amongst people ,but now I think it will be much more informal and “talented Amateur run”
