Jerusalem Synagogue Attack: Is The Coverage Fair?
As with nearly every story involving Palestinian-Israeli violence, the international media is under scrutiny for what critics say is slanted coverage.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | November 18, 2014
Few issues draw accusations of media bias like the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
When a terrorist attack at a Jerusalem synagogue made front-page news around the world Tuesday, the international media took some heat for what some saw as slanted coverage.
We'll start with this graphic that appeared in a CNN report. It used the word "mosque" to describe the "synagogue" where the attack took place. An innocent mistake, maybe, but critics call it another example of a pro-Palestinian bias.
