International Federation of Journalists expels Israel

The International Federation of Journalists has expelled Israel, ostensibly over a demand from Israeli journalists that they pay the same level of dues as their Jordanian neighbors (Hat Tip: Hot Air).
The IFJ just expelled Israel from membership. Israel has been withholding dues, demanding not to pay more than Jordan. Israel is, also, mighty upset with the IFJ’s report on the last Gaza operations that blasted Israel for violating journalists “rights”, although the IFJ team refused to meet with Israelis and just got its info from Hamas supporters.

The co-chair of the IFJ’s “Future Group”, tasked with building a more competitive survival course for its globally declining membership as citizens of the world find better and faster ways to be informed, told an interviewer about its meeting, ““What kind of members do we want — well, anyone breathing,” quipped one unionist at the IFJ “Future Group” meeting. “I’m not even sure they need to be breathing,” added another.”

If international journalists keep kowtowing to Hamas and other thugs in the world, it needn’t worry about finding Israeli members who aren’t breathing.
Read the whole thing.

In another ten years, the only journalists who will matter will be online journalists, especially bloggers.

What a disgrace! I think Israel should expel Jordan and Gaza and all of those idiots. Please Israel, stop participating in any of their organizations. Stop giving any aid of any kind to Gaza until they apologize for their terrorism and make amends for the damage done.

Best regards,

Funny how their logo vaguely resembles a swastika.

The MSM is no longer what it once was cranked up to be. I no longer bother to read newspapers or watch TV. I know what they're going to say even before I turn a page or watch what the TV anchor says. Blogs are different in that the content is varied, fresh and interesting and there are real time updates. Today's journalists can't beat the work bloggers are doing. Its a media dinosaur headed for oblivion and Israel shouldn't worry about its fate.
