HuffPo's Selective Coverage Leads To Engineered Hate

As we have already discussed, the Huffington Post couldn't get enough stories about a contentious Israeli bill about the Supreme Court. The most prominent one (which remains high in the "World" section even now) has spawned a deluge of hatred and bigotry rarely seen this side of Stormfront:

But now that all that rage has passed, do you think the Huffington Post will cover this?
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in private conversations on Tuesday that a draft law mandating that a Knesset committee hold hearings approving appointments to the Supreme Court is against the country’s status quo and not in keeping with the coalition’s guidelines.
Netanyahu directed Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman, and coalition chairman Ze’ev Elkin (Likud) to remove the proposal from the agenda.

“A law like this will not pass in a government I head,” he said.
Or will they simply "forget" to do so, and leave all their readers with the impression that the bill will carry on into law, thus reinforcing their prejudices about the Jewish state?

Do I really need to ask at this point?
