Reuters Middle East watch is a website that does a good job in exposing the biases and distortions employed by Reuters. Their recent column entitled Reuters forgets the lyrics exposes how Reuters cherry pick items – choosing ones that suit their anti-Israel bias, and ignoring inconvenient truths. They call it Card Stacking, and refer to an excellent overview of this and 6 other propaganda techniques described here
Quite apart from opening themselves to ridicule, the distortions of Reuters does significant harm to any potential peace process – by providing encouragement to Hamas and others to hold rejectionist views without any penalty. Reuters also symbolises the depths to which Westernised media have gone, in their pursuit of narrative over evidence, activisim over reporting. One wonders what are the financial benefits that Reuters also receives by catering to the anti-Israel line. It would be interesting to read an analysis on this latter point.
Propaganda techniques described are:
Assertion, Bandwagon, Card Stacking, Glittering Generalities, Lesser of 2 evils, Name calling, Pinpointing the Enemy, Plain Folks, Simplification, Testimonials, and Transfer.
