Article: Abbas: Self-rule at risk

Date: Saturday, December 4, 2010

This article reported on Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas asserting he might dissolve the Palestinian Authority "if a peace deal could not be achieved with Israel and the world did not recognize a Palestinian state."

Lack of Balance. Absence of Rebuttal. Bias. Omission: The article accurately reported on what Abbas said, but did not include any balancing statements by other sources.

Inaccuracies: It falsely referred to what would happen if "U.S.-backed peace negotiations broke down" despite the fact there are no negotiations since the Arabs already walked out.


Factual Accuracy: 10
