Glenn Greenwald: Media Coverage Of Gaza Conflict Is “Racist” Against Hamas
… In an interview with Huffington Post Lives’ Marc Lamont Hill, who just yesterday called Israel’s inability to entirely prevent civilian casualties when that is the enemy objective suggestive that this is “an unjust war,” Greenwald said that the American press deserves an “F” for their coverage of the conflict.
“There’s no question that the way that the American media covers this conflict is based on the principle that Israeli lives are just inherently more valuable than Palestinian lives,” Greenwald slandered. [...]
“I think there’s a racist element to it. I think there’s an ethnocentric element to it,” the independent journalist and Edward Snowden confidant said of the American media’s coverage of the war. “There’s definitely an anti-Muslim strain that runs throughout how this coverage is conducted.”

"The eyes of the beholder" - and here I thought it was just the opposite. Dumb me. [/scarcasm]

He's not even making an accurate charge. The coverage isn't "racist" toward Hamas, because Hamas is not a racially-based group. They are a religion-based organization-a whacko terrorist one at that. Islam is not exclusive to any race, any more than Christianity is.
Plus, I've seen stories about Palestinean Christians who are suffering in Gaza as much as anyone else there.
