HP Bias: If Only Israel Headlines

The Huffington Post is published articles practically every hour while President Obama is visiting Israel. I've noticed a trend in the headlines, while in reality President Obama calls on both sides to work for peace and condemns both sides' behavior, only one side gets condemned in the Huffington Post's headlines. I'm sure I don't need to tell you which side.

First we have the front page headline:


Note the lower text: "tough love for Israel," "Not fair that a Palestinian..." "Settlement activity counterproductive." Nothing about what Israel is doing right or the Palestinians are doing wrong.

Here's the World headline:


This time the lower text actually includes some little anti-Palestinian statements, wow! But the main headline is still against Israel.

Here's some other headlines, all either anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian:




No headline about President Obama's rocket condemnation, because it doesn't fit the narrative.

HP bias, pure and simple.
