One Sided Garbage
It's become clear that on certain issues, but most egregiously with Israel's genocidal campaign against Palestinians in Gaza (sorry, " the war on Hamas"), this podcast's coverage is grossly one sided.There's no such thing as truly objective journalis, but the schlock they've been rolling out since the start of the confilct has been unbearably reductive and very pro-Israeli. The "expert" they interview in the most recent episode about Gaza sparking a culture war, spews some drivel about the conflict being reduced to simple terms of Good vs Evil by Gen Z kids virtue signaling on the internt. He essentially says that it's only possible to have sympathy for one-side, and that one can get more internet brownie points for backing the powerless vs the powerful (humorously underscoring himself the laughable notion of referring to the David vs the Goliath situation a war). Ironic, given that The "Intelligence" has in no way offered a balanced view of the ongoing violence, or it's historical roots and context. Palestine = Hamas, Hamas = Bad. Holocaust = happened, therefore anything Israel does = Justified. I'm digusted to the point of unsubscribing. Hoped I could come back to the pod eventually, but seeing this crap in my feed is too infuriating.Read full review »
