Human Rights Groups Rips Rudoren

I much-deserved thrashing, with evidence, of NYT's Jody Rudoren for just one of her several stenographic articles on the Gaza-Israel conflict last month.  Read the whole thing (and here's my take on the same article).  I love where they caught her in lie about an interview and she corrected tweet but not article. 
Serious journalists would bridge the gap between events on the ground and concerned citizens around the world. Rudoren completely failed to do so. Given the limited coverage of Israel’s then one-month-long attack on the Gaza Strip by the Times and the many unsubstantiated claims relayed by Israeli and international media, we consider the interview between Rudoren and Zaqout to be a lost opportunity.
