In the aftermath of the United Nations’ Security Council passing a resolution condemning Israel’s illegal colonies in the occupied Palestinian territories, the ‘Western’ media could have used the opportunity to do what they have failed to do until now – inform their audiences objectively of the facts about illegal Israeli colonies.
Instead of doing so, the ‘Western’ media has acted as a megaphone for Israel’s regime, repeating it’s hysteric reaction to their audiences like they would be Israeli state media organs and paid for by it instead of ‘Western’ taxpayers or companies.
For example look at these headlines:

The media in the so-called ‘West’ has been Israel’s most trustworthy servant and one of it’s most important assets in securing the occupation of what remains of Palestinians’ lands from decade to decade.
One can say that an ‘unbreakable bond’ exists not between the United States – where the Republicans now demand an end to the funding to the United Nations because Security Council dared, once again, to condemn Israel’s illegal colonies – and Israel, but Israel and the ‘Western’ media.
Israel for itself, and the Western media for Israel. These media musketeers are not valiant fighters for justice, but it’s most dangerous enemies.
