Skewed news angle on Gaza attacks
YESTERDAY as I was browsing the BBC News website as I usually do when I get a little time, I came across this headline;
Gaza rocket fire kills Israelis
At least 20 Palestinians have been killed yet the BBC leads on the three Israelis who died in the rocket attack. Granted it was a developing story and the deaths of Israelis is less frequent than deaths of Palestinians but at the time of reading this story reports were already filtering through, including via the BBC of Israeli attacks on the Palestinians.
The news values were a bit skewed on this occasion by the BBC.
