Israel and a Reuters bureau chief who is neither impartial nor possessed of the requisite integrity

..."Luke Baker has failed his employers at Reuters, the journalists he has served as head of the FPA, and the millions of readers around the world who rely on his work for fair and accurate news about Israel: the very country that Baker so strongly and openly disdains. Reuters deserves better, the community of professional journalists deserve better, news audiences deserve better. And yes, Israel deserves better too.

Luke Baker, a man who openly expresses disdain and dislike for Israel is the Jerusalem bureau chief of Reuters, one of the world’s largest news services. He is also the outgoing chairperson of Israel’s Foreign Press Association (FPA).

Baker’s behavior on Twitter has given a window into his personal views, and those views are not at all impartial when it comes to Israel.

On the contrary, Baker’s tweets have been mocking, sarcastic, negative, and dismissive with regard to Israel and only with regard to Israel. Based on HonestReporting’s research, Baker has rarely, if ever, demonstrated such behavior or views toward Palestinians or toward any other party in the world.

Is this even allowed?
