Army Radio Journalist Admits 'Conspiracy of Silence'

Found this article, which pretty much proves Jerusalem Post's Caroline Glick's point that I blogged about here, which said that the media was protecting Ariel Sharon by being a cheerleader for the Gaza Disengagement. In this new article, the radio journalist shares the following.

"I have failed. We have failed," wrote Kaveh Shafran, political affairs correspondent for Israel Army Radio (Galei Tzahal) in a recent article for the Israeli Institute for Democracy. "As a diplomatic correspondent, I was among those who in the past year were supposed to tell the public exactly what is the disengagement plan, why it was created, how it will be implemented, and to discuss its various aspects, as well as how the Prime Minister functions."
The media kept silent, he added, when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon "lied" by saying he would accept the results of a Likud referendum on disengagement. "The media's conspiracy of silence protected Sharon when he fired cabinet ministers who did not support disengagement," he wrote, noting that the media also ignored the High Court's criticism of the dismissals.

There's plenty more. I just hope Caroline Glick saw it and felt a bit of vindication.

Was it real conspiracy or just most of the media didn't think Sharon had all that many options left?

What bothers me most about the media there and here is that they are completely covering for the Palestinian violence as if it isn't happening. Or that they make it seem like Hamas will actually become Israels peaceful neighbor.
