Adam Levick requires for his job is a laptop – and a touch of masochism. He
employs both to peruse The Guardian, one of Britain’s so-called progressive
dailies, and its popular online spinoff, Comment is Free, or CiF. Levick is
managing editor of CiF Watch, which monitors bias against Israel in the two
publications. He doesn’t have to look too hard.The Guardian is well
known for its hostility towards Israel, and, despite perfunctory protestations
of balance, wears its anti-Zionism bias proudly on its sleeve. The newspaper has
eulogized Palestinian terrorists, and CiF has posted flattering comments about
unabashed Jew-haters like Israeli-born saxophonist/ conspiracy theorist Gilad
Atzmon and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.
