Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) slammed MSNBC for its anti-Israel bias and also the mainstream media’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during a speech in Florida.

Speaking about a “troubling” segment she watched on MSNBC the night before the event, she said, “Clearly [MSNBC was] highlighting what Israel had done to Gaza and the plight of Palestinians.”

“My first thought was where is the balance, where is the spotlight on what Jewish children in Israel go through from being victims of rocket attacks,” she continued. “The media’s coverage — and it’s not just MSNBC — I’ve seen it on CNN and even in the broadcast media as well. We have work to do.”

The DNC chair said we must educate people and make them understand that there is a “simple solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: “It’s called recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish and Democratic state.”

The Florida congresswoman made the comments at a breakfast event held in January at a south Florida branch of the Jewish Federation, according to The Daily Caller.

    The situation with the media has followed even been led by an administration that is also clearly bias against Israel. The media takes their cue from the administration. They (the media) has forfeited their cherished and important role of an independent, and rigorous role of searching for the truth. This role has always been a very important one. One that keeps our democracy healthy and in fact on the right track. There no longer seems to be true investigative reporting. It is political correctness gone horribly wrong. The left is solely responsible for this. Thus you have a President who can’t even call terrorists Islamic extremists. He is leading the pack. He is leading humanity down a very dangerous road. Where is the Congress?

    I guess you scratch when it itches because until now Mz. Wasserman -Schultz and MSNBC were joined at the lips. There is irony delicious irony in all of this as Mz W-S is the mouthpiece for the most Anti-Israel Administration since the formation of the Jewish State.

    By the way A Jewish and Democratic Israel ? I believe democratic is of the small letter “d” variety. Editor please take note, your bias may be slipping.

    It’s unfortunate that so many liberal / progressive Jews come so late to the party. In the meantime they’ve done a lot of damage.

  • robert borns

    why does this powerful very brilliant woman still support our president who so obviously has very negative feelings about jews and israel. does a career top rational thought.

  • You are a little late too notice the antisemitism of the mainstream media, Debbie! It has been going on since The New York Times buried the Holocaust during World War Two. Antisemitism is foundational to the mainstream media..I guess you just fell off the turnip truck, Debbie!

    Hey. They are just following the lead of your dear leader-hussein obama on his way to winning the Neville Chamberlain award for courage.Actually the world media is responsible for whipping up hate of Israel and Jews by giving us their opinion of the news rather than the facts.The NY slimes is one of the worst.WhynJews buy this paper I will never know.Remember that the 3 no nos of ou times are 1 racism,2colonialism,3militarism.Simply by defending its people and surviving Israel isguilty of all 3.The loudest to condemn Israel are the Ebglish,Irish,And Scots-THe UK.Iseem to remember that for 500 years ,on 4 continents the british were killing people to makeand defend their empire.How did they get so moral?or is it that living under sharia law they aremorally superior. \

    Lip service. If this woman were living in the Warsaw Ghetto, she’d be helping decide which Jews would be deported next. Obama-loving F-R-A-U-D.

    Hey Comarade Wasserman:

    These scum at MSNBC are YOUR people.

    You own them.

    And CNN is even worse.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz on almost all issues is literally a nutcase and a fool.
    HOWEVER, at least her moral compass is not completely out of whack.

    I will have to give her Kudos on speaking out like this. When it comes to the rest of the progressive left agenda, she doesn’t get it how anti-Isreal and just as importantly anti-Western Civilization the Democratic Party has become. It’s been hijacked by the Progressive Left.

    I’ve never voted for a Republican candidate for President in my life. I will NEVER vote for another Democratic Candidate in my life……. The Democratic Party has left us. The University campuses in the USA have indoctrinated youth against Israel and Western Civilization. They will pay a heavy price for this in the golden years…..

    “A FORMER Democrat”…..
