Your Two Biased Headlines

As we have mentioned many times before, the Huffington Post knows that nothing brings traffic like stories about Jewish people. Unfortunately sometimes even they publish pro-Israel articles and when that happens, it's time for some sweet sweet headline spin:

The articles makes it sound like the answer is, "no they don't have roots there." But if you actually read the article it says yes they do. Naturally this caused the Hufffington Post readership to freak out, as we will document tomorrow. For now, we have this one:

Once again, the headline says the exact opposite of what the article is actually about. The article is that a guy wrote a book criticizing Israel for making mistakes in achieving peace with its neighbors (hardly what I would call "the case against") and the article's author disagreed with him about his conclusions.

I don't know who is writing these Huffington Post headlines (and they are both the same inside, as you can see) but I can't help but wonder if they are banking on the fact that much of their readership doesn't read much of the article itself before going to town.
