"Crossfire" co-host SE Cupp and Arab American Institute president James Zogby joined Brian Stelter for a discussion on media bias amid developments in the Middle East, sparked by Cupp's op-ed in the New York Daily News.
"In discussing the demands that Hamas has in the negotiations with Israel, most reporters omit the fact that Hamas's stated main priority, its main objective is the total destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Jews," Cupp said.
Zogby called that "one of the most bizarre arguments I've heard." He said, "If we adopted that line of argumentation, then every time we mentioned Benjamin Netanyahu or his coalition partners, we'd have to include parenthetically what they believe. We'd have to say in the Likud charter, there is a total claim for the entire land of Israel without Palestinians present in that land of Israel."
