HP Bias: Price Tag Editorializing

The Huffington Post is supposed to be a mainstream newspaper. It'll cover news like 90,000 dead in Syria with headlines like "Latest Death Toll in Syria Higher than Expected." News like protesters killed in Turkey with "Second Protester Killed in Turkey." But when graffiti is sprayed in Israel, it busts out the editorialized headlines:

Yes, apparently graffiti is "despicable" while 90,000 dead in Syria don't get any adjectives. Could the bias be more apparent?
