That's reporting

Radio-stationen Democracy Now idag:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has renewed US vows to boycott the Palestinian government unless Hamas meets US-Israeli demands. Clinton testified Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton: “We will not deal with nor in any way fund a Palestinian government that includes Hamas, unless and until Hamas has renounced violence, recognized Israel, and agreed to follow the previous obligations of the Palestinian Authority. And that is our policy, and that is exactly what is guiding us, but we want to leave open the door that that can happen.”

The policy of opening the door to Hamas’s acceptance marks a slight rhetorical deviation from Bush administration policy, which unequivocally rejected any dealings with Hamas. But it continues the Bush policy of imposing conditions on Palestinians not imposed on Israel. Israel has long refused to renounce violence, recognize Palestine or agree to uphold prior agreements.

Så kort, så præcist og nøgternt, kan hykleri og diskrimination rapporteres. Det kræver ikke nødvendigvis mange ord at berette kendsgerninger. Så kom ikke og påstå, at mediernes sandhedskrise skyldes økonomiske forhold eller mangel på tid - de fleste journalister har tid nok til at finde på løgne og opbygge myter og skrive propaganda, hvilket må tage længere tid end kort og godt at gengive kendsgerninger og sætte dem op mod relevante andre kendsgerninger. Her er hvad de siger - her er hvad de gør. Sådan! Amy Goodman styrer!
