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.
