HP Photo Bias: Toulouse Shooting

Earlier today, as you've probably heard, four people were killed by a drive by shooting in front of a Jewish school in Toulouse, France. The HP covered the story, but as usual for them, the picture used for the cover was not of any victims:

These images were in a "slideshow" at the bottom of the page, but the fact that the HP chose a generic picture of cops standing around to headline the article is as unsurprising as it is biased.

    I had another compilation links to letters of foaming antisemitic hatred that were allowed to stand pat. Not pub'd here.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
