“You don’t see this on American television.”
Jeremy Scahill joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to discuss his expose for the Intercept on the way the U.S. government handles its terrorist watchlist database. During the interview, host Alyona Minkovski asked the journalist about media coverage of the Israel-Gaza conflict, and Scahill had some strong opinions on the matter.
“We could say this every time I come on your show and talk to you: we’ve hit all-time lows with media coverage in this country,” Scahill told Minkovski. “When you look at what’s happening right now in Gaza, this is a massive massacre and one epic series of war crime after war crime, child after child being killed.” Scahill went on to say that “Israeli propagandists are largely given carte blanche to say what they want on American television with very little pushback.”
