Reuters gets ‘award’ for bias

Kudos to Honest Reporting for nailing the Reuters news agency for the most dishonest reporting and coverage in 2003 of the Israeli-palestinian conflict.

Folks, in May 2002, the Israeli army arrested Reuters photographer Suhaib Jadallah Salem in the Gaza Strip, after a hand grenade was found in his car. Also, a Reuters’ cameraman was arrested in the West Bank, after Israel said he was “directly connected to enemy terrorist activities.”

Additionally, in a dispatch entitled “Israel Rejects U.N. Jenin Probe,” Reuters used a photo showing a body being dragged through the street. There’s no caption, so readers would naturally assume the photo is from Jenin — but in fact it is from Hebron, and depicts an Arab “collaborator” lynched by his fellow Arabs.
