Judith Miller on Fox News Friday discussed the American media’s coverage of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. Miller argued, “Israelis are extremely upset about the coverage in the most influential American newspaper, which is the New York Times. There was a front page story this morning about extremism within Israel.” Miller, who formerly worked in the New York Time’s Washington bureau, left the paper in 2005 after fallout from her role in the Valerie Plame affair.

Miller went on to say, “What is often missing in the context of this crisis, is the context,” referring to the New York Times referencing the kidnapping and murder of a Palestinian teen, but leaving out the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens, events which took place immediately before the current conflict. In reference to the role the U.S. may play in brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Miller said, “If President Obama wants to be a mediator here, with whom is he going to mediate, he cannot talk to Hamas, which is a terrorist organization with whom we are not supposed to be speaking.”
