BERLIN – Israel’s embassy took German-language media organizations to task on Monday for shoddy reports on the Palestinian terrorism sweeping across Israel.
Writing a commentary on its blog titled “Journalism against all rules,” the embassy accused certain media outlets of failing to identify victims and perpetrators.
“We find again new examples of bias in the German-language media. Many angry readers in these days sent the Israeli Embassy in Berlin examples,” the diplomats wrote in Berlin.
The embassy criticized the online outlet of the Focus
newsweekly for failing to state that Israelis were injured in a knife attack. Focus Online
wrote: “Continued knife attacks in Israel: six injured.”
