Look at the standards of the New York Times

This was what disturbed the New York Times about Hillary Clinton's testimony in Congress: "Her emphasis on the civilian costs of the violence in Gaza suggested that the incoming administration might be more inclined than President Bush has been to urge restraint on the Israelis." I won't be surprised if the New York Times decides that any mention of the civilian suffering in Palestine is in fact anti-Semitic.
PS After I posted this, I read the article "When the News Doesn't Fit: The New York Times and Hitler's First two Months in Office, February/March 1933" in Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, and you find that the paper was brimming with optimism about...Hitler. (thanks Jad)
