( A new billboard adjacent to the New York Times office in midtown Manhattan calls out the newspaper for what a media watchdog group says is anti-Israel bias in its reporting.

The billboard, an initiative of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA), states: “Would a great newspaper slant the news against Israel? The New York Times does.” The billboard—which accuses the newspaper of “misrepresenting facts,” “omitting key information,” and “skewing headlines and photos”—ends with a call to “stop the bias.”

CAMERA Executive Director Andrea Levin said the decision to place the billboard comes after years of the New York Times misleading readers and policymakers on the challenges that Israel faces in the Middle East.

“There’s a chronic bias embedded in the reporting and commentary,” Levin said in a statement. “The public should be very skeptical about relying on the Times. Our advice is to go elsewhere for solid news.”

Last November, the Times admitted it made “a regrettable choice” by featuring a photo of relatives of Hussein Jawadra, the Palestinian terrorist indicted for killing 19-year-old Israeli soldier Eden Atias, in its coverage on that murder.

    I stopped reading THE NEW YORK TIMES
    around 1984 because of its extreme
    obvious bias against Jews, and I
    ** NEVER ** regretted that decision.

    THE WALL STREET JOURNAL [1] is a much
    better newspaper than NYT [2] is pro-
    Israel and [3] has three times as many
    readers as the NEW YORK TIMES.

    Rabbi Avigdor Miller (of blessed memory)
    said in a public lecture that:
    “The New York Times is the headquarters
    of the yetzer hara (evil force).”

    Jews are the only, repeat *** ONLY ****
    people in the world who stubbornly
    insist on remaining fanatically loyal
    to newpapers that constantly attack them.

    No Jew would buy a newspaper that said
    nasty things about his children, even if:

    [1] the article was 100% true
    [2] it was a small article
    [3] it was buried on page 88B
    [4] the newspaper only attacked one child
    [5] the newspaper did not attack often.

    You would never read a newspaper that
    attacked your children, because you
    LOVE your children. But you will buy
    the NYT until the day you die, because
    you do NOT love other Jews the way you
    love your children.

    I believe that any Jew who buys any
    anti-Jewish newspaper — including the
    New York Times — is a TRAITOR against
    the Jewish people. Period.
