    seems to be as much a problem as Islamophobia and racism in the West.

    I understand that MEMRI sometimes has bad translations, but I think it's generally good to shame the haters.

    Bigots should be exposed and embarrassed.

      Al, you are right that it's good to shame the haters. However, when anyone only shows an extremist view of any country, it's hateful propaganda.

      Those who demonize an entire race or religion are horrible human beings. Would a publication that would only print articles of infant murderers in America, of drug addict, and of rapist be an honest representation of our country--or would that be a hateful distortion. That's the kind of filth put out by MEMRI.

      •  You probably follow MEMRI more closely than me (0+ / 0-)

        Maybe you're right.

        But why wouldn't a publication that exposes infant murderers and rapists be performing a valuable journalistic service?

        •  The problem with entirely one sided facts (0+ / 0-)

          is that it's propaganda. Propaganda are lies. These lies are used to falsely color entire populations. This paves the way for wars. Wars are the worst of all terrorism.

          The exposing of an individual crime is good. But criminalizing everyone because of a single horrendous individual is is called racism.
