I have long been puzzled as well as disturbed by the growing assessment by many in our community alleging that The New York Times has a characteristic anti-Israel bias. Perhaps it is my naive, starry-eyed assessment of human nature endemic in my world view as a practicing clinical psychologist that prevents me from understanding this perspective. Does the front page article on Sunday, March 17, by Jodi Rudoren, titled “New Apartments Will Complicate Jerusalem Issue,” illustrate this alleged anti-Israel bias?
Please, I do want to understand the characterization of the Times as being prejudiced against the State of Israel and its policies. Thank you.
