National Public Radio insists it is not biased against Israel. NPR’s president and chief executive officer, Kevin Klose, told JTA that the latest of a series of internal reviews NPR conducted of its reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict revealed that of 147 interviews aired between April 1 and June 30, 53 percent were with Israelis and 47 percent with Palestinians. NPR is trying to address criticism that it is anti-Israel. It has hired a public relations firm, posted its Middle East stories online and offered an Op-Ed by Klose to Jewish media.
