Norwegian State Broadcasting Council condemns Norwegian State TV for not being critical enough concerning Hamas, "failed to distinguish war propaganda and verifiable information"

(Some people call it "Pallywood")

"After several hours of discussion the Broadcasting Council decided to criticise  NRK's (Norwegian State Broadcasting) Middle East coverage. ...

After several hours of discussion the council came to the conclusion that NRK has not been critical enough concerning Hamas, and that they have failed to distinguish war propaganda and verifiable information, and NRK should provide more information about the causes of the conflict. ...

Former foreign editor at Aftenposten, Kjell Dragnes, defended NRK with the words 'Do not shoot the pianist if you do not like music.' '- NRK's coverage has been good. It does not differ from international media such as BBC and CNN.'"

The Broadcasting Council believes that NRK has been insufficiently critical about Hamas' role."
