A little over a week ago, some members of our organization, If Americans Knew, met with New York Times
Public Editor Daniel Okrent to discuss the findings of a detailed study we had completed of two years worth of Times
news stories on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Okrent was going to be writing a column discussing the paper’s coverage of Israel/Palestine, and we felt our study would be an important resource. We presented our findings, complete with charts, spread-sheets, clear sourcing, and extensive additional documentation, to Okrent and his assistant. His subsequent column was perplexing.
