More Headline Bias

We have a two for one deal today in terms of biased headlines:

Oh no! Not unilateral action! On the Huffington Post that usually means annexing territory or something equally outrageous. But if you read the article you will find that what Barak wants is something most Huffington Posters would agree with:
"JERUSALEM -- Defense Minister Ehud Barak abruptly proposed on Wednesday that Israel consider "unilateral action" if long-stalled peace talks with the Palestinians don't resume and produce a deal – suggesting Israel may be thinking of withdrawing from part of the West Bank, as it did from the Gaza Strip seven years ago."
Of course that is just the AP writers' opinion and not what Barak actually said, which only makes the article even stranger. Still, we'll see how the Huffington Posters react to it.
