Move Over AIPAC, Make Room for Enlightenment

It just took a little bit of looking around to find some elements of the media which abhor Netanyahu's right wing anti-peace approach to the Palestinian question. Some are clearly of Jewish heritage, like The Tablet, and some are not specifically Jewish, but take a progressive/liberal view of how to establish a two state solution to the Jewish/Palestinian problem.

Here's something from The Tablet.
Here's Juan Cole's contribution from his blog Informed Comment.
Here's Col. Patrick Lang's piece from his blog, Sic Semper Tyrannis.

Then there's J Street, a liberal Israel lobby which opposes the hard liners like Netanyahu and AIPAC.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the right wing Israel apologists get more press than those of the liberal/progressive view. Is that true, and if so, Why?
