There is a strong relationship between American journalists and scholars. One of the features that some American journalists and scholars have in common is their pro-Zionist bias. It has long been realized that Israel has been granted a certain immunity, which is unique in nature. Israel’s immunity protects it from criticism in respect to journalism as well as scholarship. Journalism and academia are unique with respect to their support for Zionism in the United States. Various examples of different instances of Israel’s immunity from criticism have been explained in Chomsky’s Fateful Triangle: The United States, Israel, and the Palestinians. One of the most powerful instances in this respect is the silence regarding the terrorist attacks conducted against the USS Liberty, the U.S. Navy technical research ship, by Israel. In one of the attacks, in which Israel had “unmistakably identified” and attacked the USS Liberty which resulted in more than 30 American crewmembers died and over 70 were injured.
