The problem with global newsfeeds is that they can’t offend anyone

The above came through on the Reuters feed as published by Newshub.

Apparently there was a truck attacker in France.

And he was a Tunisian man.

This is how our news is poisoned.  UK PM Theresa May is in France meeting with counterpart Francois Hollande and they are talking about terrorism.

But a media organisation as august as Reuters contorts itself to avoid the obvious and established facts, and is almost petulant in its attempts to minimise the outrage that might result from a headline that could say:

ISIS-inspired terrorist attack in Nice had ‘support and complicity’

Now, let’s say that a Palestinian woman used a vehicle to attack Israeli soldiers. What headline would you expect?

Based on the truck driver in France, something like:

Palestine car attacker dies

But the actual headline is:

So, she’s careening towards them, and what is reported is that some said “Kill her, kill her!” Before she killed any of them, of course.

Can you see that Reuters, therefore, isn’t neutral at all, is protecting terrorists and shying away from linking terrorism with Islam, but has no problem slanting a terrorist attack on Israelis as something where clearly identified “Israeli Troops” wanted to “kill” her.

Reuters picks sides.  Islam is not to be criticised.  Israel are aggressors.   And this is the news that our own media feed us every day.
