The 75th anniversary of the Nakba has brought unprecedented coverage in American media of the Palestinian experience. No, it doesn’t yet rival commemorations of other historical events from that period. But in a new high-water mark, MSNBC and NPR both did very good Nakba pieces, with Ayman Mohyeldin speaking of the “ethnic cleansing” of Palestine; and Vox did a long explainer laying out the history of the Nakba.


This is a new mood on the left in U.S. media; and American Zionists are scrambling to keep up with the discourse.
