Reuters Jerusalem Bureau Chief transfers to France
Advertisements [?]

Less than 14 months after he assumed the mantle from Alastair Macdonald, Crispian Balmer is officially out as Reuters Jerusalem Bureau Chief. As with his predecessor, Balmer was vehemently anti-Israel in his reporting and editing and we noted this in many of our posts. Perhaps the most egregious example of Balmer's many appalling displays of journalistic malfeasance, was when, following a Palestinian bus bombing, the Bureau Chief wrote:

Police said it was a "terrorist attack" -- Israel's term for a Palestinian strike.
Especially ironic in view of the fact that even the Palestinian Prime Minister referred to the attack as terrorism.

We look forward to a new Reuters regime in Jerusalem and genuinely hope this time, we will see change for the better.
