If I'm not mistaken, Israel does not have the same liberalness of the Freedom of the Press as we do.
The Israeli press is dominated by the left, even more so than in this country. Leftist media outlets (like "Ha'aretz") routinely incite all manner of pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel propaganda, while right-wing organs (like Arutz Sheva) are in danger of being shut down.
Secondly, if you read the article, this story first broke in the New Yorker.

You're right. I skimmed over that bit. Apologies.

"this story first broke in the New Yorker."
Well that's all the proof I need that it's legit.
