HuffPost's Bloody Shirt Waving Fails to Convince

As we commented on last week, the Huffington Post tried to stir up some more anger against Israel by publishing an article about Human Rights Watch's demand that Israel investigate an airstrike during Pillar of Cloud that killed Palestinian civilians. The bias there is that the demand of HRW to Hamas to stop attacking Israeli civilians don't get published. I checked. But even though the article came complete with a biased pictures, it still failed to convince the Huffington Post readership. The vast majority of the top favorited articles made it clear that Hamas' use of human shields is what got those people killed.

Maybe the times are changing, and the criticism of Israel will be limited only to things they deserve to be criticized for. We can only hope.
