Book Review: Elder of Ziyon Blog

14 Jul

Elder of Ziyon, my favorite blogger, published an embarrassingly complimentary review of “David & Goliath.” He writes:

We see through [Simmons’] eyes how he discovers the patterns of bias, documents them and holds reporters’ feet to the fire when he exposes them.
While any reader of this blog is aware of media bias against Israel, reading about it all at once is a mind-blowing – and often infuriating – experience. We tend to get numbed after a while because we are so used to the daily bias, but that is a mistake – every single example must be called out and the reporter or news service held responsible…
It is the personal touch that makes this book so readable. But make no mistake – Simmons goes through the incidents in detail and the cumulative effect is astonishing. All the major events since 2000 are analyzed – the Jenin “massacre” lie, Hezbollah’s bullying of reporters in Lebanon, the “fauxtography” scandals, the Gaza war coverage, and countless smaller incidents, always written in an engaging, first person manner.

Elder also posted a video interview that we did off the cuff in Newark airport:
