Where Art Thou Oh LGF?
I was trying to find a good site covering the present Israel-Hamas conflict when I remembered that the best source I know of would probably be Charles Johnson's Little Green Footballs.
I know CJ is now totally enveloped in the MSNBC narrative and world view, but surely this couldn't extend to his support for Israel. I know a lot of Israel supporters on the Left.
Nope. Nothing. Nada. Not a single line devoted to Israel, Pallywood, or media bias in the coverage of the current operations. Not even a word about the conflict. Not even a mention of it.
I'm stunned. Absolutely stunned.
I mean, CJ got famous for Rathergate, but he also did an awful lot of Palestinian media debunking. Isn't this the guy who coined the term "fauxtography"?
He and his blog were one of my inspirations for blogging myself.
How does one do that? Go from a staunch friend of Israel to .... what's the most sympathetic reading here? .... indifferent?
Seriously, how do you explain that?
