What the Times of Israel Calls ‘Journalism’

What the Times of Israel Calls ‘Journalism’ April 6, 2015

The Worldnetdaily gleefully links to an article in the Times of Israel and it’s not hard to understand why. The article, headlined Bad Iran deal foretold in ‘blood moon’ celestial signs? is exactly the kind of rubbish they publish every day, plus they’re selling the book about that nonsense.

It’s actually a very long article. Let me show you the only paragraph that even mentions the Iran deal:

He can’t be certain, but the blood moons may have something to do with “the horrible deal they just got with Iran,” he said in a conversation following President Barack Obama’s briefing on Thursday. The deal, which Obama labeled as “historic,” is denounced by the Israeli government as “dangerous capitulation.”

That’s it. In an article of more than a thousand words with the headline talking about the deal with Iran, that’s the only sentence that even mentions the matter. Not a shred of evidence, not even an argument from the guy (Pastor Mark Blitz) making the claim. Just a vague statement that it might “have something to do with” it. No explanation of what it might have to do with it or why anyone would believe that it does. A major world newspaper is showing the journalistic standards of the Worldnetdaily.
