HP Headline Bias: Israeli Police Attack

The Huffington Post, in its classic form, published a biased headline last Friday afternoon in the (probable) hopes of allowing Israel hate to be commented on with no annoying Jews around to argue back. This time, it's the following headline:

In reality, unlike what is reflected in this Huffington Post headline, Palestinians were rioting on the Temple Mount and throwing rocks at people minding their own business. Thus, Israeli police responding to the riots by throwing the aforementioned stun grenades.

But rather than present the facts, which is that Palestinians were rioting and throwing rocks and Israeli police responding, the HP spun it to make the Israelis look like the aggressors. Classic HP bias.
