The 2011 Dishonest Reporting Awards are up!

The annual Dishonest Reporting Awards from Honest Reporting gives us a great overview of anti-Israel bias in the media for the year.

The overall winner, The Guardian, had "reporting" was so egregiously biased that Honest Reporting had to create a separate article just describing the top ten examples of Guardian bias, lies and sloppiness.

But many of the other winners did things equally outrageous. For example:

  • The LA Times saying that the Fogel murders were part of a "cycle" - after all, Jews build houses, which prompt these murders
  • Reuters' helpful explanation of what Israel calls a "terror attack"
  • The infamous Vogue puff piece on the Assad family
  • AP calling a terrorist responsible for three murders a "political prisoner"
Read the whole thing.
