Newspaper from San Francisco, California, shows its primitive anti-Israeli bias
A few months ago the San Francisco Chronicle, the largest newspaper in the San Francisco Bay Area, reprinted an article from the anti-Israel Egyptian press without telling its readers (click here for more details).
On August 19, Islamic terrorists executed two homicide bombings in Baghdad, Iraq, and Jerusalem, Israel, killing dozens and injuring hundreds, including many children (click here for details).
The next day, the San Francisco Chronicle clearly showed its anti-Israeli bias by printing two very different headlines describing the Islamic homicide bombings. Headlines are powerful elements of any news story, for a headline is the first (and oftentimes the only) item seen by the reader.
On first headline, describing the attack in Iraq against the United Nations, we can read the following:
Suicide bomb hits U.N. in Iraq, kills at least 20
In a smaller font, at the bottom of the page, to describe the murder of 21 Israelis, including 6 children, we read:
Suicide bomber threatens Mideast road map
Let's analyze the first headline, describing the Islamic homicide bombing in Iraq:
1) The verb "kill" is used. The main story is that 20 people were murdered as a result of a homicide bombing - this is indeed the story.
Let's now look at the second headline, describing the deliberate murder of Israeli women, children and babies:
1) There is no mention that the homicide bombing was executed by a Palestinian mass murderer from Islamic Jihad or Hamas.
