(Yaakov M / VINnews) — The Jerusalem Post has again shown its bias against Charedim.

In a story Wednesday about a bus driver arrested for abuse of a special-needs child, the Post used an image of a Charedi mother and children standing near a school bus. The clear (yet bogus) implication was that the students and others involved were Charedi Jews.

However the reality is, the story took place in a rural Pennsylvania town, and there is no indication that Jews were involved. The news outlet eventually changed the image to a generic school bus, after being called out by a noted Charedi journalist.

The story involved a school bus driver in Pennsylvania, arrested for duct-taping a child to a seat on her bus March 8. Juliet Pratt (not a Jew) was charged with unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, endangering the welfare of a child and assault.

Surveillance video showed Pratt using duct tape to restrain the 10-year-old child who was already wearing a safety belt, and reportedly has Down syndrome.

The video shows Pratt placing the duct tape around the kid’s ankles and chest.

The initial image depicted a Charedi mother, apparently in the New York area. Mishpacha Editor Yochonon Donn tweeted the image and wrote: “A school bus driver is arrested in… (squinting) Pennsylvania but the Post shows a picture of an Orthodox mother. We have enough tzuris without the Post making stuff up about is. There’s no way this wasn’t done to stereotype our community.”

The Post later changed the image but did not issue an apology or admission.

Avi Mayer was appointed J-Post’s new editor in chief 2 months ago. He has turned the paper into a Haaretz clone, has called for the overthrow of Netanyahu, supports the anti judicial reform demonstrations despite the violence, and spits into faces of Israeli voters who gave this government its mandate. Subscibers know what to do.

Huh..?

Jpost is a sad and anti Jewish publication. Sadly, that’s what the left has become.

JPost is very anti religious, anti right and anti Bibi and pushes hedonistic atheist valueless American values.

It is a low practice to squabble over what other media publish. Sinking to their level.

So, the Jpost pulled their own stock photo of a school bus and posted it. It wasn’t a breaking news story . Anyone who stumbles across that story on Jpost will read the story and understand that this has nothing to do with Orthodox Jews. I’m gonna vote “no big deal” over here
