Accuracy in Media

WASHINGTON — The Jewish state of Israel does not only have foes on all sides of its border, sans the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, but the liberal mainstream media in the U.S. and throughout the Western world.

Reuters’ latest homepage headline and brief description says it all:

The headline read, “Israeli naval shelling kills four boys on Gaza beach”, while the smaller description text says, “Israel agreed to a proposed brief cessation of hostilities after Palestinian militants fired more than 100 rockets into Israel and counter shelling killed four boys on a Gaza beach.” Yet, we see that the Israeli aggression was highlighted and the hundreds of rockets fired from Islamist Hamas militants goes almost unreported.

The article itself reminded readers that Israel has killed up to 216 Palestinians, mostly civilians while “a civilian has been killed by one of more than 1,000 Palestinian rockets fired and more than half a dozen people have been wounded.” However, the sheer enormity of Hamas-fired rockets failed to make the headlines. 

Also ignored is how Hamas fired rockets into Israel, some of which actually hit a power station for parts of Gaza and caused a massive blackout in Gaza for about 70,000 people in Gaza (via Gateway Pundit). Little to no mention is made of how Hamas militants use civilians as cover and fire rockets from residential areas.
