WashPost Goes for a Ride Touting Hezbollah as Terrorism Fighters


The Washington Post published a story Sunday featuring a pathetic a tour of sorts backed by the US-designated terrorist group Hezbollah. With no counterbalance to the propaganda-laced piece, titled “Hezbollah takes journalists in Lebanon on a tour to prove Trump wrong,” the article was anything but news.

“On tour with Hezbollah in Lebanon, where they’re out to show that they, not Trump, are the ones fighting terrorism,” Beirut chief Liz Sly tweeted with a link to the story, which she wrote with fellow correspondents Suzan Haidamous and Heba Habib.

Saturday’s tour consisted of the terrorist group showing “a party of journalists on a tour that helped explain, trumpeting the results of the militia’s recent fight against Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate in barren mountains near the northeastern Lebanese town of Arsal,” the piece stated.

They added: “Hezbollah officials said they took journalists on the tour to demonstrate that Hezbollah, not the United States, is the one doing most of the fighting against terrorism.”
