I monitor the news mostly via CNN’s web page, but I’m beginning to think that maybe that isn’t such a good idea. Check this CNN article about a so-called terrorist attack near the hotel where Obama will be staying in Israel.
The headline reads: Backhoe attack injures 5 near Obama’s Jerusalem hotel.
But when you read the article you learn that it is the hotel where Obama will be staying when he is in Jerusalem. He isn’t there now, and wasn’t there when the so-called attack actually happened.
Is it too much to ask for honest, straight forward reporting that does not twist an incident to make it seem more dire than it actually is. Although I have to say a guy running amoke in down Jerusalem on a backhoe seems pretty fucking dramatic
