Newseum Folds

Last week we reported Israel supporters were pressuring the Newseum to drop two Palestinian journalists, Mahmoud al-Kumi and Hussam Salama, from its yearly event honoring reporters killed in the line of duty. Al-Kumi and Salama worked for Al-Aqsa television and were killed in the Israeli assault on Gaza last November. Although the Newseum originally defended their inclusion, this morning the Washington, DC-based museum dedicated to the news industry announced that al-Kumi and Salama would in fact not be a part of today’s ceremony…

I visited the Newseum last year.  I won’t be going back, and I made that decision before this latest abomination by the Newseum.  They are no more about real news than the man in the moon.  For example, they had pictures and names of the accused 9/11 hijackers.  They had nothing of the FACT that at least seven of the 19 were alive after 9/11 and the documented victims of identity theft.  Why would supposed martyrs not want their real names known?  Qui bono?  Wouldn’t real journalist report this contradiction to the official story?  Where were the American media’s investigative journalists?  Newseum or an adjunct to Orwell’s Ministry of Truth?
