Krauthammer: ‘Rank Ignorance’ Pervasive in Media Covering Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (Washington Free Beacon)

Columnist Charles Krauthammer condemned what he called “rank ignorance” among U.S. media outlets that have harshly covered Israel as the Jewish statehas battled the terrorist group Hamas this month.

On Thursday night’s Hannity, host Sean Hannity said he was dumbstruck by how people were treating the conflict, given Israel’s status as the Middle East’s lone true democracy, as well as that Hamas started the conflict, disregards Israel’s right to exist and fires rockets at civilians.
