Associated Press loses credibility

By: Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury

American news agency Associated Press [AP]’s Dhaka office has finally exposed its extremely nasty anti-Semitic and anti-Israel face. Recently, it was revealed when a staff correspondent with AP’s Dhaka office, Parveen Ahmed wrote several emails to an eminent columnist in South Asia named Sunita Paul, where Parveen expressed virtual anger as Ms. Paul wrote an excellent article on repression of journalists in Bangladesh. She [Parveen] also passed extremely objectionable remarks on Israel through official email address of Associated Press. Many believe that, such open exposure of this female journalist with AP in Dhaka shows to the world that this news agency is not only anti-Semitic but even tried to do everything to defame anyone who defends Israel.
