News Service Accused of Biased Reporting on Gaza War

A monitoring service of Dutch media claims that the state subsidized national news service NOS Journaal, “repetitively used terminology, omitted facts and manipulated video footage to portray Israel in the most negative light.” Yochanan Visser, on behalf of the monitoring group Israel Facts Organization, said that the prime time television program “fanned the flames of anti-Semitism in the Netherlands.” Later, scores of people chanted “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas” at anti-Israel demonstrations. The NOS-Journal refused to respond to these accusations.
