Journalists mock accurate Israeli graphic of Iranian terror
The Israeli embassy in Washington tweeted this today:
I agree there is a disconnect between the tweet, which emphasizes Iran’s attempts at hegemony in the Arab world, and the graphic which also includes many terror attacks worldwide that can be traced to Iran.
However, some journalists felt that the point being made is ridiculous:
The embassy responded to Fallows:
That last tweet answers why the Argentina bombing from 1994 is not included – this is a list of aggressive Iranian actions in only the past five years.
All of the sources for the headlines in the graphic are given.
None of the journalists have yet explained exactly what is inaccurate about the original tweet. They just know, deep in their hearts, that it is wrong. Somehow.
That is apparently a skill set that is a prerequisite for being a member of a profession that pompously pretends to value facts.
