HP Bias: Media Shutdown Dichotomy

Today we're going to look at news articles the Huffington Post does and does not cover. Yesterday, the Huffington Post published a news story from Israel about the Israeli government shutting down a radio station operating out of the West Bank:


Undoubtedly a disappointing move on the part of the Israeli government. But the Huffington Post failed to cover this story out of Iran:


Iran does essentially the same thing. So why does the Israeli story get published on the Huffington Post and the Iranian story doesn't? Could it be that the Huffington Post has an agenda to push and favors one country over the other?

(thanks to Elder of Ziyon for the Iran story)
