Today's Biased HP Headline: Modesty In Israel

I logged onto the Huffington Post this morning, and what did I see:


Wow, all of Israel? That is amazing that the US would advise that. I have to read more. Here's what the body of the article started with:


So, the advisory is for visitors to certain neighborhoods in Jerusalem, not to Jerusalem in general, and certainly not to Israel in general. Perhaps one of the most deceiving headlines we've seen on the Huffington Post in a while.

Furthermore, it was the USA that issued the advisory, not the Israelis. Do you think our Huffington Post friends noticed the difference before they were off to the races?
