LA Times Headline Portrays Counter-Terror Strike as Provocation

In the Los Angeles Times, an odiously titled Feb. 28, 2008 article, "Israeli airstrikes answered with rockets" (p. A5) turns the facts of this conflict on their collective head.

The headline falsely portrays a deadly Palestinian terror attack on an Israeli college campus as an act of self-defense, and Israel's response in legitimate self-defense to incessant Palestinian terror as a provocation that "prompted," as reporter Richard Boudreaux put it, the latest terror attack.

The Times owes its readers an apology for this grossly biased and unfair headline.
