Jewish Groups Lambast CNN For ‘Whitewashing’ Left-Wing Antisemitism

Written by: Justine Brooke Murray on August 25, 2022

Several Jewish groups are criticizing CNN for its recent special covering the rise of antisemitism, which focused mainly on “right wing,” white supremacist threats while “whitewashing” left-wing antisemitism and anti-Jewish attacks by other minority groups.

“Experts across the board caution antisemitism is growing on the left, but it is not equivalent to hate on the right,” CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash stated in her special, “Rising Hate: Antisemitism in America,” released Sunday. She then advertised part of her special in a tweet, stating the issue is “complicated and nuanced,” which both the Jewish Leadership Project and the Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) called a “whitewash” of left-wing attacks toward Jews in public press releases.
