Netanyahu Illustrates the Appropriate Response to Fake News

You can tell a lot about a person by the way he responds to his enemies. A man who is self-confident and recognizes his strengths and weaknesses either responds calmly and with reason or doesn’t respond at all.

By Tim Thomas

Today’s case in point: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In response to news declaring that Hamas was “moderating” its position on a prospective Palestinian state, Netanyahu recorded a public message to remind the world that Hamas is a terrorist organization bent on the complete annihilation of Israel.

The PM begins by specifically calling out CNN, Al Jazeera, and The Guardian for presenting fake news before making his case.

“Hamas murders women and children. It’s launched tens of thousands of missiles at our homes. It brainwashes Palestinian kids in suicide kindergarten camps.”

Netanyahu’s calm demeanor and rational presentation of facts is a primer on how to handle fake news, and it concludes with a great mic-drop moment.
