I offer catch flak when I remark on how distorted the picture coming out of the international media is when anything to do with Israel or the Middle East in reported on. Here's a case in point.

The title of the story wrote:
Baby Murdered in Jerusalem Terror Attack
Hamas terrorist from Silwan runs over pedestrians leaving light rail; 8 injured. Infant dies of wounds.


Here's the real story of a terror attack today in Jerusalem.

Now here's how the AP first reported it.
The title of the initial AP story wrote:
Israeli police shoot man in east Jerusalem

An hour later, the title was changed-- presumably after complaints-- but no new info appears.

EDIT:
The death of the baby is being celebrated by thousands.

I think this one. He seems a very discerning sort of bird.

I often catch flak when I remark on how distorted the picture coming out of the right wing media is when anything to do with Israel, the Middle East, or the rest of the media in reported on. Here's a case in point.

The title of the story wrote:
Baby Murdered in Jerusalem Terror Attack
Hamas terrorist from Silwan runs over pedestrians leaving light rail; 8 injured. Infant dies of wounds.


Here's the real story of a terror attack today in Jerusalem.

Now here's how Jonah Goldberg of the National Review Online first reported it.
The title of Goldberg's story wrote:
Anti-Israel Bias in One Headline (Or Three)

An hour later, the title remains unchanged-- presumably because irony is lost on the author -- and no new info appears.

They changed it? That's pretty weak on the part of the cabal :(

When AP posted their report was the baby dead, it seems from the text it was not?
