Today's Huffington Post Bias

Here's a perfect example of how to spin a story. Check out one of the Huffington Post's "World" headlines yesterday:

What's the first thing that jumps into your mind when you read this? Obviously it's that Israel currently has gender segregation on public transportation, which is not true. Let's contrast with Reuters' headline:

Notice how in this headline there is no mention of "public transportation." Yes, it makes a big difference.

As for the story itself the legislators are attempting to make any form of segregation illegal, including the unofficial sort which has been happening in certain sectors of the ultra-Orthodox society.

Naturally even the engineered hate has been rolling in:

Hate, ignorance, anti-SEmitism, and more hate. I guess it's all in a days work for the Huffington Post editors.
