In the Middle East, media bias by omission?

"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." Watch the rest of the conversation via the video link above.

    find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

    James Zogby really just suggested that the rights of a terrorist organization should be on the same playing field as a terrorist organization. I found his cavalier diatribe offensive and disrespectful of my heritage. Yes, there are two sides to the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Zogby has spent a career trying to pull wool over the eyes of society. He hopes to blur the lines between terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezzbolah and the Palestianian people. My heart goes out to the Israeli people in this conflict. It also goes out to the Palestianians in the region, especially in Gaza. But let's be clear that organizations like Hamas have sinister intentions. While Israel is not perfectly blameless in this long lasting conflict, let us be clear: Zogby's suggestion that Israels' intentions are even comparable to the sinister motives of Hamas is irresponsible and built on a perception of the world rooted in his extreme anti-Jewish lens.

    SE Cupp is an unapologetic propagandist for Israel, dragging CNN into the nether depths as well. It's shameful how much air time you give her. Her claim the other day that "Israel wants peace, the Palestinians want genocide!" is a good example of double-think and blaming the victims, which are both common in her toolbox. Zogby is a class act, but too subtle to call her on her dishonest hysteria. Get rid of her.

    I wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post saying, in part, every news story about Hamas should have a disclaimer about Hamas's charter. It was unpublished. I wrote it because Americans over 65 support Israel at twice the rate of those under thirty. What young Americans know is from what they read and see in the media. My goal is a two state solution for the sake of all the children in the region. I support neither side. Unfortunately Zogby took this as an opportunity to say the likud charter claims all the land as historically Israel's. Palestinian supporters constantly refer to old maps which shows where Israel Now sits as "Palestine." Zogby used this as an argument against those, he claims, who say there are no real Palestinians. The fact that nobody in the news conference said anything about it didn't seem to matter. By that token Jews who have lived there thousands of years are "Palestinians " also. The CNN host played for Zogby a tape of Nentanyahu saying Israelis would have to accept that a two state solution seemed to be the only solution possible. I've always thought Zogby somewhat moderate but today he, and CNN for that matter, just weren't thinking. Children of the region don't need support or sympathy for parents for any particular "side." The U.N. resolution that put Palestinians in the shape they are in and kept them that way never mentions "Palestinians." Jews as well as Arabs were given the right of return. The U.N. unfortunately is partly a club for many nations in world that are, by any measure, clearly anti-semetic. That is shown in the number of U.N. resolutions condemning Israel vs. number of resolutions condemning Palestinians. Israel needs to stop building settlements to show that this is a land, not cultural or religious, dispute between two peoples. They need to understand that the Palestinian child killed as "collateral damage" by a "targeted assassination" of a known terrorist by a missile from an airplane is just as innocent, and just as dead as the Israeli child killed by an untargeted missile or suicide vest. Israel needs to understand that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is foolish. Americans of any age would never tolerate mexicans or cubans or Canadiens lobbing rockets into its territories yet the majority of Americans youth support Palestinians. The fact that this is so can be placed squarely on irresponsible journalism. Sacrificing children, literally the future, for real or imagined slights to their ancestors is just plain foolish. Palestinians need to stop shooting and face reality. Chief Joseph stopped shooting to save the lives of children. Robert E. Lee did the same when his men urged him to continue a guerilla fight in the mountains that would have certainly lasted years and maybe decades. Chief Joseph's cause might have been more noble than Lee's because of slavery. But American Indians aren't going to get America back. Some Indians supported the British in the revolutionary war and others supported Americans. Choosing the wrong side hurts the future of entire groups of people. Zogby's argument that Israel has radical elements is a tragedy for the Palestinian people because it was his answer to the fact that all Palestinians are "united." What they are united behind is Hamas's charter calling for the destruction of Israel and, as it puts it, the Jews. Two wrongs, he should know, do not make a right. Worse, endless chicken or egg arguments about who started the violence is killing more and more children. Israel has peace movements calling for a stop to all violence on all sides. All Palestinians have is leadership supporting violence on Hamas's part. Both side have done things wrong but the Palestinian path is very wrong and supported not only by its people, who see no counterpoint in their media, but by our young people who see little counterpoint in American media. Palestinians don't trust that if they stop shooting Israel will. Hamas continually breaks cease fires and when questioned about it say "occupation" "poverty" or anything else they can think of to avoid the situation at hand. Hamas's focus is on victory or another "martyrdom operation" that will cement their adult fighters' courage in their people's cultural memory. If we care about their children we must make them change their charter- no excuses. Israel must stop building settlements and be willing to dismantle or relocate others- no excuses. Israel has stopped building settlements in the past for a while. Hamas has stopped shooting for a while. Both sides need to stop and not for a while. They need to stop for the sake of their children.

    Continued Jew hated on CNN. You guys are amazing, you allow Zogby to spew unchecked propaganda! Where are your “Reliable Sources?” There is absolutely nothing Zogby said that could be reliably substantiated.

      His characterization of the Israeli motives highlight exactly what SE Cupp was talking about. Drawing a comparison between a terrorist organization (Hamas) and a sovereign state (Israel) is like suggesting that Al Qaeda's London bombings in 2005 were somehow justifiable or possibly reasonable because the western world attacked them following 9/11.
