Hey, at least Reuters felt like adding useful information this time. I've bolded the part of the caption that was added in the refile:Update:
Didn't get a chance to go into detail earlier, so allow me to elaborate a bit, if you don't mind. Notice that the original version of the caption left out any mention of who
fired the rocket that landed in Sderot, while concentrating heavily on how Israel
killed three members of a Gaza family.
In a "botched" air strike, even.
Also notice how Reuters doesn't bother to include the dreaded "allegedly"
in its accusations against Israel
, even though the accusations that are being thrown at Israel are not
And even with the correction, which adds information that I sarcastically imply might
be of interest to the reader, we're still
left with the classic imbalance
:—"Palestine" doesn't "kill" anybody, Palestinian "militants" do. On the other hand, the Israeli "Armed Forces" or Israeli "soldiers" don't kill anybody, Israel herself
By continuing to skew its reporting to the endlessly violent
Palestinians' side of the story, Reuters is only helping to prolong the suffering of everyone
in the middle east. Particularly the poor, neglected
residents of Sderot.
