January 1, IDF Spokesman Exposes MSNBC Host’s Misleading Hamas-Influenced Data



IDF Spokesman Jonathan Conricus slammed MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian for peddling Hamas propaganda during a recent interview.

Vossoughian questioned Conricus about the alleged high number of civilian casualties in Gaza, claiming it was “above 4,600, many of them women and children.”

However, Conricus quickly debunked these numbers, stating, “When it comes to data coming out of Gaza, please keep in mind that everything that comes out of Gaza is not verified independently. It’s information disseminated by Hamas, and Hamas are the equivalent of ISIS when it comes to truthfulness.”

Conricus went on to express his skepticism about the casualty figures provided by the Hamas-controlled “Ministry of Health.”

He reminded Vossoughian of the false reports, including one by MSNBC, that claimed Israel destroyed the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza, citing the initial claim of 500 dead Palestinians.

However, the European Union estimated the actual number to be between 10 and 50.

Conricus emphasized the need for caution and skepticism when dealing with figures related to civilians, women, and children, as these are areas where Hamas seeks to manipulate public opinion.

Despite Conricus’ clear explanation, Vossoughian failed to address the issue of media organizations irresponsibly spreading false information.

Instead, she attempted to equate the actions of Israel and Hamas, claiming that innocent civilians on both sides were losing their lives.

However, Conricus had already stated that Israel does not target civilians and that the majority of Israeli casualties were civilians deliberately targeted by terrorists.

It is crucial to recognize the biased reporting that occurs during conflicts like these.

Why It Matters

IDF Spokesman Jonathan Conricus shed light on the issue of biased reporting and the dissemination of false information during conflicts.

Vossoughian’s claim of over 4,600 civilian casualties in Gaza was quickly debunked by Conricus, who emphasized that the data coming out of Gaza is not independently verified but rather disseminated by Hamas, a group known for its lack of truthfulness.

Conricus highlighted the dangerous consequences of relying on unverified casualty figures, citing the example of MSNBC’s false report on the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza.

The initial claim of 500 dead Palestinians was proven to be vastly exaggerated, with the European Union estimating the actual number to be between 10 and 50. This manipulation of numbers by Hamas is a deliberate tactic to sway public opinion.

Vossoughian’s attempt to equate the actions of Israel and Hamas, ignoring Conricus’ statement that Israel does not target civilians, further highlights the issue of biased reporting.

It is crucial for media organizations to exercise caution and skepticism when reporting on conflicts, as spreading false information can have severe consequences.

As consumers of news, we must be vigilant in seeking out unbiased sources that prioritize factual reporting. The importance of receiving accurate information cannot be overstated, especially in times of conflict.

    This media “equivalency”, which I call it, nonsense is doing Hamas’s work for them. Israel goes out of their way NOT to target civilians but the Hamas strategy and tactics are to TARGET them and use the people of Gaza as shields when the IDF comes calling. Just call the media useful idiots for Hamas.
