Today's HP Headline Bias: "Schoolboy" Killed in Gaza

Update: While thousands die in Syria and an American soldier is arrested for massacring Afghanis, the Huffington Post still considers this story important enough to take the headline in the "World" section. Complete with bloody shirt waving:

  1. Today: Why the Sudden Israel-Gaza Escalation?

    He claims to not understand why this is happening because, in his words, there's never been any escalation at all, eg. there's no rockets flying into Israel.

    "But had there been a sudden or serious escalation? As far as I can tell from here the answer is no. By and large, Hamas themselves have been on ceasefire and QassamCount, a website reporting rocket attacks on Israel, does not appear to have reported an escalation recently."


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.
