In the past I have felt it necessary to complain to you about AP’s Amy Teibel for unfairness if not worse. However, and not for the first time, Mrs. Teibel has again written a balanced report with “Israel gives response to Hamas prisoner swap offer,” I feel.
Maybe she could have profiled Mr. Abbas a bit more realistically. “Abbas, who has had little to show for years of peace efforts” conflicts with the economic boom and complete calm that has come to the West Bank. But this would be a matter of perfection, not of unfair reporting, and perfection should not be required of mortals.
Recently AP’s Mark Lavie also covered the pending swap fairly, but since in the past I have been so very critical of Mrs. Teibel, I find it necessary to stress again to her: thank you for your professional work.
