Dear Ms. Portentoso:
I just received the request to renew my monthly $30 contribution to WSHU. Why should I donate to an organization that never responds to my calls, when I request a callback, and whose logo of “fair and unbiased” reporting has yet to be demonstrated?
I am stopping support of the station due to WNPR’s severely biased reporting on Israel. The Flotilla incident was the latest and last straw. I need to donate the money to organizations to help combat the hatred and marginalization of Israel that the station, on a consistent basis, promotes.
There is clear evidence that anti-Semitism, not just anti-Zionism, is at the base of all of the events in dealing with Israel throughout the world. In its slanted reporting, the station is fueling the fire of hatred, directly and indirectly not just toward Israel, but toward all Jews.
