Underreporting The Holocaust At The ‘Paper Of Record’: An Interview With Student Filmmaker Emily Harrold

They were also really concerned, I think, with not being seen as engaging in special pleading for the Jews. They worried the newspaper would be looked on poorly – maybe the readership would fall or the credibility of the paper would diminish.

I’ve also heard it argued – and it’s an interesting thing to think about – that prior to December 7, 1941 there was concern that if the war was seen as “the war to save the Jews,” America would not enter WWII. So the Sulzbergers – The New York Times – were trying to be smart about it. [They perhaps were thinking], “We want American involvement in this war because ultimately that will help the Jewish people of Europe, but if we project this as a war to save the Jews, that might actually work against American involvement.”

In your JTA interview, you mentioned that you had to pay over $700 for a 12-second clip of Sulzberger for your film. That sounds like a bit much.

That footage is the only motion picture clip I’ve found of Sulzberger, and it’s him sitting at his desk in the New York Times building. Archival material is really expensive. I’m actually working on a film right now separately from “Reporting on the Times” and our budget is over $60,000 for a 90-minute film for archival material.

It’s definitely a challenge because I’m right out of school – hopefully – by the time this film is finished, and we’re in a recession. It’s really difficult to get funding for the arts. Right now I have a little bit of money from the Bronfman Center at NYU and I have a [fundraising] campaign going on right now on KickStarter.com that ends on Friday. I’ve also been self-funding, but it’s a really big challenge.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

For too long the media and international community have been preaching that “Palestinians” bear no responsibility for the consequences of their decisions and they are passive victims of the conflict.
