CNN Describes Muslim Terror Attack on Synagogue as Israel Killing Palestinians - Daniel Greenfield
by Daniel Greenfield
CNN has always been widely hated in Israel, but its reporting on the latest Muslim terror attack with the murder of four Rabbis, three of them Americans, killed by two axe-wielding murderers, in a synagogue while at prayer, really hits a new low.
First there’s a description of the Israeli police shooting and killing “2 Palestinians” when the police had fired in self-defense at the terrorists who had just perpetrated four brutal murders.
As Honest Reporting shows, not only did CNN respond to a terrorist attack on Jews by interviewing a member of the racist PLO terrorist group, but its website and broadcast listed the two Muslim terrorists alongside their Israeli victims as casualties of the attack.
Meanwhile part of its broadcast also claimed that the attack was really an attack on a mosque.
The Chryon beneath that meanwhile states, “Israeli police shot, killed 2 Palestinians who had knives, hatchets.” That is technically true, but it also leaves out the massacre that they just committed.
CNN also unilaterally transformed a synagogue into a mosque.
CNN was always terrible, but this isn’t just bias or dishonesty. It’s the sort of thing you expect from Al Jazeera.
But just as a reminder that there are worse news networks out there than the BBC, here’s what happened when an Israeli minister tried to show a photo of one of the murder victims on the BBC, which spent quite a lot of time broadcasting a non-stop broadcast feed of Gaza casualties.
