Washington Post contradicts itself in two articles in the same issue, thwarting its attempt to bash Israel

by Michael Berenhaus at americanthinker.com

The Washington Post felt the need to print two articles on the same topic in the same edition of its Monday newspaper (2/12/24), both about an alleged fraying of the relationship between President Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Not surprisingly to people who read The Post, the two articles contradicted each other; Tte Post can’t even keep their biased story straight! Perhaps there should be a mandatory retirement age for newspapers! 

In the front-page article “Biden closer to a breach” by Post authors Yasmeen Abutaleb, John Hudson, and Tyler Pager, the Post states that:

The mounting frustration with Netanyahu has prompted some of Biden’s aides to urge him to be more publicly critical of the prime minister over his country’s operation in Gaza, according to six people familiar with the conversations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

As President Ronald Reagan was known to say, “here they go again.” The Post couldn’t be more blindly irresponsible: trusting the double hearsay of unnamed sources conjecturing about unnamed aids. The unaccountability of such journalism raises the suspicion that the Post invented the Oval Office conversation.
