Fair and Balanced
When there is a conflict, the New York Times op-ed page always seems balance and opposite viewpoints. Take today. For this Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the NYT asked for two different and contrasting views. For the Israeli viewpoint, Benny Morris (the right-wing Israeli historian who supports ethnic cleansing) fairly represented the Israeli viewpoint. For the Palestinian perspective, the New York Times asked...Benny Morris to represent it.
