60 Minutes under attack

January 29, 2009




This past Sunday, 60 Minutes aired a powerful, thoughtful, and sobering report
on the danger that Israeli settlements pose to the chances for
Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Since the airing of the segment, 60 Minutes’ Bob Simon has been under attack for
supposed “anti-Israel bias.” CAMERA (the Orwellian-named Committee for
Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) alerted their activist
network – flooding the 60 Minutes’ offices and their advertisers with angry phone calls charging media bias. Jewish community leader Abe Foxman fired off a letter calling the piece a “hatchet job on Israel.”
