Frustration and anger are building within the American Jewish community and the broader pro-Israel community at the New York Times coverage of the conflict in Israel and Gaza. Some examples:
- The New York Jewish Week's editor Gary Rosenblatt's column: "I've long been a defender of The New York Times' Mideast coverage, arguing that for all of its flaws on occasion, there is no consistent, inherent bias against Israel. But I'm having second thoughts these days, based on the coverage of the latest round of fighting between Israel and Hamas."
- The Weekly Standard, a piece by Irwin Stelzer headlined: "For New York Paper, Another Misleading Israel Article."
- "Goodbye, New York Times," an article by Helen Maryles Shankman in the Jewish Standard of New Jersey and Rockland.
- "The New York Times' Editorial on Israel Was a Sloppy Hack Job," an article by Yishai Schwartz in the New Republic.
