Are U.S. Newspapers Biased Against Palestinians? Analysis

By Dorgham Abusalim

Global Research, January 15, 2019

A study released last month by 416Labs, a Toronto-based consulting and research firm, supports the view that mainstream U.S. newspapers consistently portray Palestine in a more negative light than Israel, privilege Israeli sources, and omit key facts helpful to understanding the Israeli occupation, including those expressed by Palestinian sources.

The largest of its kind, the study is based on a sentiment and n-gram analysis of nearly a hundred thousand headlines in five mainstream newspapers dating back to 1967. The newspapers are the top five U.S. dailies, The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, and the Los Angeles Times.

Headlines spanning five decades were put into two datasets, one comprising 17,492 Palestinian-centric headlines, and another comprising 82,102 Israeli-centric headlines. Using Natural Language Processing techniques, authors of the study assessed the degree to which the sentiment of the headlines could be classified as positive, negative, or neutral. They also examined the frequency of using certain words that evoke a particular view or perception.

85,000 Yemeni Kids May Have Starved as Saudi Aggression: NGO

85,000 Yemeni Kids May Have Starved as Saudi Aggression: NGO

Alwaght- Some 85,000 children under the age of five may have starved to death in Yemen since the Saudi regime and a coalition of its allies launched a brutal aggression on the impoverished nation since March 2015, UK-based charity reported.

Using data compiled by the UN, Save the Children calculated in a Tuesday report the mortality rate for untreated cases of Severe Acute Malnutrition among Yemeni kids between April 2015 and October 2018.

We are horrified that some 85,000 children in Yemen may have died because of extreme hunger since the war began. For every child killed by bombs and bullets, dozens are starving to death and it’s entirely preventable,” said Tamer Kirolos, the aid group’s Yemen director.

Alwaght- Recently, the Saudi-led Arab coalition and the resigned President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi’s mercenaries have intensified their attacks on the Yemeni ports city of al-Hudaydah. According to the reports, the new wave of aggression killed 150 Yemeni civilians. Reports suggest that in the first day, the Arab coalition launched about 30 airstrikes on the city. Some 200 air raids have so far been reported.

The new push to take control of the crucial port city was begun on Thursday, a day after the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a speech said that the Yemen peace talks to end the four-year war on the impoverished country should start from the next month.
