Mainstream Media Aggravate Antisemitism Bias in Israel and Hamas War
The newsroom is not immune to antisemitism

It should come as no surprise that many news media conglomerates are having a hard time with balanced coverage during the dramatic rise of antisemitism since the Oct. 7 invasion of Israel by Hamas.
Could it be that a low-rumbling of prejudice inside the news business manifests itself in blind reporting? World history reveals a thread of hatred toward the Jews. Such has been recorded in both the New and Old Testament of the Bible. Prophetically as well. The newsroom is not immune.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.” – Matthew 24:9
In an interpretation of Matthew in the Blue Letter Bible, in a part titled, “The Hatred of Jewish Believers,” Thomas Ice explains that in the above verse: “Jesus predicts that all the nations of the world will hate the Jewish believers living in Israel during the tribulation. Why? Because they hate Jesus, the Messiah!”
Granted, we are most likely, presently not living in the time of tribulation. However, recent news stories such as the ones about higher security cost at Jewish schools in the U.S., Jewish college students filing complaints over ‘rampant and pervasive antisemitism,’ and Harvard accused of ‘severe and pervasive’ antisemitism in lawsuit filed by Jewish students, are hard to find in the mainstream press.
