Will you donate $5 to help expose CNN’s pro-Israel bias?

CNN reporters expressed “real distress” over Israel stories being changed, while other staffers described a climate that is hostile to Arab journalists.




In January, The Intercept reported that a recently expanded protocol at CNN called “SecondEyes” requires almost all coverage on the war in Gaza be routed through the network’s Jerusalem bureau, which operates under the shadow of Israel’s military censor.

Then this month we revealed that CNN journalists, including renowned international news anchor Christiane Amanpour, recently confronted network executives over what the staffers described as myriad leadership failings in coverage of Israel’s war on Gaza.

Several junior and senior CNN employees described feeling devalued, embarrassed, and disgraced by CNN’s war coverage, according to a leaked recording of a recent all-hands meeting obtained by The Intercept.

The escalating internal conflict at CNN is just the latest example uncovered by The Intercept of rank-and-file reporters at mainstream news outlets rebelling against the anti-Palestinian slant of their employers. The donations of readers are critical to The Intercept’s ongoing reporting on these internal conflicts as well as the humanitarian catastrophe resulting from Israel’s assault on Gaza.

CNN has faced a flood of internal and external criticism of its coverage of Israel and Gaza since October 7, accused of minimizing Palestinian suffering and uncritically amplifying Israeli narratives.

Earlier this month, CNN described an Israeli massacre of more than 100 starving people who were gathered to get food as a “chaotic incident.” In February, The Guardian published an extensive story sourced to multiple CNN staffers who described the network’s Gaza coverage as “journalistic malpractice.”

CNN is not alone. The Intercept has repeatedly uncovered examples of major news outlets including CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Associated Press, and others slanting coverage toward the Netanyahu government’s talking points and sidelining or even firing journalists who refuse to follow the pro-Israel party line.

The pro-Israel bias in U.S. coverage of the war in Gaza is actively providing political cover for the Biden administration’s blank-check support for Israel. That’s why it’s vital to hold accountable the news outlets that are failing to uphold journalistic standards, while we also continue providing one-of-a-kind coverage of the war itself.

But The Intercept’s reporting simply is not possible without the donations of readers like you. Please donate $5 to help support the investigative journalism of The Intercept and our ongoing coverage of the war in Gaza.
