For years, NBC has been fighting the charges that their reporters are nothing but propagandists. Now they have one they hired from Al Jazeera that has long been known to stretch the truth when covering stories on Jews. Ayman Mohyeldin has used his position at NBC to falsify reports in order to make the Israelis look bad.
Ayman Mohyeldin has been accused of skewed reporting in the past and was even admonished by an MSNBC anchor, Jose Diaz-Balart, when Mohyeldin reported that Israelis shot a man in cold blood whose hands were empty. Diaz-Balart pointed out that the camera crew assigned to the story had clear video of the man wielding a very large knife.
“Both of his hands were open and both of his hands did not have a knife.”
That was hardly the first time or the second time he has lied about what he was reporting on. This is from the Pro Jewish website, The Tower:
During Operation Protective Edge last year, NBC pulled Mohyeldin out of Gaza after he sarcastically accused Israel of killing four teens in a Facebook post, writing: “The #US State Department Spokesperson just said that #Hamas is ultimately responsible for #Israel shelling and killing 4 boys who were cousins aged 9-11 because Hamas didn’t accept the #ceasefire. Discuss among yourselves.”
He was later sent back to Gaza, where he reported that an Israel drone had struck a hospital. NBC was forced to delete a portion of his report in which he claimed that he had seen an Israeli drone fire at the hospital. An Italian journalist who had actually witnessed the attack confirmed that Hamas, not Israeli forces, had been responsible for the rocket strike that destroyed the hospital.
Prior to joining NBC, Mohyeldin worked for Al Jazeera. In 2009 the Canadian Broadcasting Company’s ombudsman upheld a complaint against Mohyeldin, stating that one of his reports — asserting that some United Nations employees had “obviously been targeted” by Israel — “did not meet the standards of accuracy and fairness within the CBC’s Journalistic Standards and Practices.”
Finally, a group in Israel has started a campaign against Mohyeldin. They are using the hashtag #firetheliar. I don’t blame NBC for the delay. They weren’t sure which one of their many many liars were being targeted. (Note to self: Next time include the name)
Why doesn’t NBC fire him? Perhaps they like what he does.
