I’ve Got Those AP Bias Blues..

AP are currently running with the following headline:

 

 

Sounds pretty clear. An Israeli airstrike is responsible for the killing of one person. Problem is, a couple of key facts are missing from this headline (and even the accompanying story):

 

Fact #1: Reports of an Israeli airstrike have not been verified. Only neo palestinian sources have claimed this, and the IDF has denied it. Yet the AP are stating it as fact.

 

Fact #2: The person killed was a terrorist.

 

Shoddy, biased journalism, but not at all surprising. The only thing missing so far are pictures of the terrorist’s grieving relatives.

 

Update: We do get the obligatory car swarm pictures though.
