Here is a short list of a few of the hundreds of examples of the media intentionally manipulating the public to support Israel’s recent offensive against Palestinians
July 24, 2014

Please reblog or message with additions as you see/think of them and I will edit with the additions. I am sure we can create quite a large list of examples.
image There’s also this instance in the Washington Post where the headline is worded in such a way that one might think that the 330 deaths are Israeli, not Palestinian, and caused by Hamas and not Israel. Also, in the majority of news stories (not all, but many), the word “killed” is used when the victim is Israeli, and “dead” when the victim is Palestinian. It’s like they’re trying to give the impression that no blame can be assigned for a Palestinian death because they weren’t “killed,” they are just “dead” somehow…

Wow yep, great example. And disgusting! Also, even if it were crystal clear that the 330 killed were Palestinian, why is the headline still that 2 invading soldiers were killed rather than the hundreds of civilians? So infuriating!
