Guardian Newspaper Bans Pro-Israel Watchdog from Site

Adam Levick

The British newspaper The Guardian has banned Adam Levick, the managing editor, of the pro-Israel media watchdog, CiFWatch, from its website, deleting all prior comments on Guardian articles and disabling his ability to contribute opinion pieces to the site and further comments.

CiFWatch monitors the Guardian’s coverage of Israel and is affiliated with the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America. “CiF” stands for “Comment is Free” the opinion section of the Guardian where anti-Israel articles often appear.

In a posting on the CiFWatch website, Levick said that he had been a contributor to the Comment is Free section of the Guardian’s website for years and that his user account, and all prior comments on Guardian articles – many of which pointed out anti-Israel bias –  was terminated without any explanation.

Levick’s work at CiFWatch has led in the past to corrections of many Guardian articles.

Levick noted that “occasionally I sensed that I may have annoyed the CiF moderators by violating the Guardian Prime Directive: Thou shall not write the name ‘CiF Watch’ or link to it in any way…”

    The fascism of the far left…

  5. I believe The Guardian is owned by Persian Gulf Arabs. They have never been truthful about Israel and cannot stand to have anyone point out that the Emperor has no clothes.

  7. The Guardian now has officially become an enemy of free speach. Therfore they can not be taken serious anymore!

  8. Anya Khan says:

    Explaination: They are anti-semitic scum

  9. Just post under a different name..After all it should be more important to get a specific point across than promote his site.
