Arne Jensen, the Secretary General of Norwegian Editors' Association denied that the media had admitted to bias last year, saying that they had only recognised that the public should have been given more context and background.
“Israel can not expect that there be equal coverage, because the conflict is not equal,” he told ABC Nyheter. “By that I mean that one party in this conflict is superior to the other.”
“The criticism is highly unfair,” Jensen continued. “It is driven by the fact that the ambassador wants a different kind of coverage from what they received, which is fine in itself, but doesn't mean that the journalism is bad.”
In his letter Schultz complains that editors allowed journalists to use the word “murder”, when it war people are not murdered but killed.
