Reader comment on item: Arafat's Bedroom Farce

Submitted by Gary Eisen (United States), Nov 10, 2004 at 10:12

Your article on Arafat was simply brilliant. If I may, you neglected to mention how gullible the press has been throughout this affair, uncritically reporting every inane word out of the PA's mouth. For example, with 14 doctors around him, the press dutifully repeated the PA's statement that he was suffering from the flu. Or there was the one about him "sleeping" when he was probably brain dead. You know the rest.

How can anything out of the PA's mouth be credible after this farce? This is the same press who repeated the PA's lies about the Jenin massacre, Mohammed Al Durrah and other fictions.

PS
Suggestion for future articles. Could you write something about the space given by the British Medical Journal and Lancet to anti-US and anti-Israel rantings.
