AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

There are certain things in life that are certain. You know, things like death, taxes…AP photographers showing their bias against Israel.

Case in point: here’s AP photographer Muhammed Muheisen on today’s terror attack.

The body of a Palestinian is seen, following a knife incident in the West Bank settlement of Shilo, near Nablus, Monday, March 31, 2008. In West Bank violence Monday, a Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli hitchhikers near a Jewish settlement was shot and killed by an armed Israeli civilian, Israeli police said. One of the hitchhikers opened fire after the Palestinian pulled a knife, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, calling the shooting self-defense. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

Leaving aside the fact that he has seen fit to take a picture of the terrorist’s lifeless body, allow me to translate key parts of the caption:

Knife “incident” = terror attack perpetrated with a knife

“West Bank violence” = terror attack perpetrated by a palestinian

“Pulled a knife” = pulled out a knife to kill

And the cherry on top is the last part of the caption when Muheisen mentions the police spokesman “calling the shooting self-defense.” As if it was something else.

Update: Besides being an AP photographer/propagandist, Muheisen also dabbles in blog commenting.
