HP Headline Bias: Punished or Not?

The article we're examining is almost a week old, but I just noticed the biased headline yesterday. In the Israel section of the HP, you can see this article:


Hmm, he was punished? Interesting. Let's click on the article and see what it says:


The exact opposite headline, the journalist in question (Uri Blau) avoids punishment for leaking military documents (he did have to perform some community service). Two headlines, advocating for opposite points of view. Why would the HP pretend that Blau had been punished when that's the opposite of the story? Well, Israel picking on poor innocent journalists makes for a much "better" (aka anti-Israel) story than the truth. Typical biased HP headlining.
