Anti-Israel bigotry and bias Caroline Glick

TOM ‘THE WEASEL’ FRIEDMAN TYPIFIES THE ELITIST LEFT IN ANTI-ISRAEL SCUMBAGGERY……..

 

Tom Friedman is a contemptuous weasel, which is why he does so well in elitist circles.

Read it all here.

From the comments: TINSC:

The NEW YORK TIMES scratches its head wondering why it’s losing subscribers. Yet they keep paying huge sums of money to columnists like Tom Friedman. Albert Einstein once defined “Insanity” as “doing the same thing over and over; expecting a different result”.

Tom Friedman is a perfect example of media insanity. If you’re too lazy to do your own homework, I guess you can always let some media commentator formulate your opinion. Just watch out for what they DON’T tell you.

Back when Tom Friedman wrote “From Beruit to Jerusalem” he clearly stated that he and other news reporters were intimidated by the PLO terrorists. They basically said: “Write bad things about us and we’ll kill you… and your family too.” Having succumbed to that intimidation, Tom Friedman now lives in a world where that is diminished. Enter George Soros. In an age where newspapers are dying all around, George Soros can keep a “correct-thinking” columnist living the lifestyle he/she is used to with “subsidies” that you and I will never know about. I’m not saying this is happening with Friedman, but one thing is clear: the ability of the NEW YORK TIMES to keep paying him a multi-million dollar salary every year is becoming limited.

We may ultimately see Tom Friedman fade away like many of the others: Anthony Lewis, Robert Novak, Charlie Reese etc. That will not stop a whole new generation of Israel-haters from taking their places.

In a way, it’s too bad Caroline Glick had to write a direct attack on Friedman. When you think about it, Friedman is just another guy with another typewriter. Nobody can explain to me who he is and why his opinion is better than anyone else’s.

  1. I keep asking: Who the heck is Tom Friedman? Why is HIS opinion that much better or more-important than others?

    1. This gets included in the post,….it’s that good. Thanks TINSC, and welcome back!

  2. Yes, TF would be better off sticking to fiction–or at least writing the same stuff and properly labelng it fiction. In Beirut to Jerusalem he claimed that you can smell the matza baking in the shuk during the Passover holiday. Nothing is baked in the shuk during Passover, least of all matza which is all made before the holiday, and not in the shuk. If he had to make up b.s. “local color” you can imagine what he did with the big topics. Levy Cohen of the JPost wrote years ago about Friedman looking to cook up stories when he came to Israel–Cohen acted as his local logistics coordinator and came away from the experience feeling slimed.

    The idea that Israel paid off the entire Congress to clap for Bibi is not journalism, it’s big lie anti-semitism. That’s why Allen West was right about the Dems /Liberals using a Goebbels strategy. I’d rather have an honest- if non-politick- man like West, than liars like Friedman who are ginning up the anti-Israel mill.
