The LA Times and Israel - A Determination to Distort:

When it comes to Israel, the LA Times is not concerned with the truth, but with pushing a PLO agenda - Watch Feb 5 A letter from Lou, a boycotter, to the LA Times:

To: Readers.Rep@latimes.com, john.carroll@latimes.com, laura.king@latimes.com, oped@latimes.com, opinion@latimes.com
Subject: Once Again Is More Real Than Never Again

In Laura's inaccurate quote
"In the wake of Aqaba, as Palestinian suicide attacks continued, the Israeli leader chipped away steadily at Abbas standing by refusing to grant concessions that would have given him much-needed credibility among his people"
She misrepresents the fact, even reported earlier in the times, that Israel did release over 300 prisoners and removed a number of roadblocks and withdrew from Bethlehem. It is also true that a number of these released prisoners were involved in terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians before and after their release.
It would certainly reassure readers of the times and laura's working within journalistic integrity if occasionally facts were presented when discussing middle east situations. As usual it is expected this error, as are the daily distortions and gross misrepresentation of laura, will be ignored.
How about a thimble of truth and balance.
Lou, Santa Monica, Ca
