USA Today Headline Bias on Attack, Cease-Fire

The article:

Palestinians break cease fire. Palestinians hit Israel with 5 rockets. Israel then strikes back by hitting terror sites. Egypt and Palestinians announce that both Israel and the Palestinians agree to renewed cease-fire.

The headline?

Israel targets 'terror sites'; Hamas OKs cease-fire

8/14 update: USA Today's print headline came much closer to capturing the story: "Israel, Gaza fighting as negotiations continue; Rockets launched, 'terror sites' targeted." The skewed online headline has not been changed.

Gazan militants fire rockets into Israel in open violation of the ceasefire. Israel retaliates. And your headline reads "Hamas OKs Ceasefire."

Do you call that objective reportage? I call it anti-Israel propaganda.

The worlds looks at the Jewish State and the Jewish people with a different set of eyes. The bombing of Berlin, Dresden, London, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Aleppo and many other places where COLLATERIAL DAMAGE was approved of and yet Israel, protecting it's own is accused of an UNBALANCED defense of its self against others. I say that is doing a good job of defending and protecting its citizens and soldiers.

Same old same old, nothing is going to change. USA Today spins the news like everyone else, trying to squeeze every letter of anti Israeli sentiment from a news item that should have reflected the opposite sentiment. Most remarkable that there is no real terror site in the Gaza strip, just as there were no Hamas terrorist killed, Terrorists are civilians, and next we will learn that rocket launching pads are humanitarian sites.
