AP has a history of anti-Israel bias, er, “errors” in news reports on Israel.

Kudos to Honest Reporting for their constant vigilance in defending Israel against these media attacks.

Via Honest Reporting.

It was a busy day for media coverage of Syria. First came the appalling chemical attack on the Syrian city of Douma allegedly carried out by President Bashar Assad’s forces followed by hand wringing by the civilized members of the international community.

Then, in what was most likely an unrelated event, Israel was widely seen to be behind an air strike on a Syrian air base which killed 14 people, including a number of Iranian military advisers.

The Syrian chemical attack and the alleged Israeli air strike became part of the same story for many media outlets. Many of the headlines ran with the most recent incident – the air strike. However, in the absence of any images from the scene, some media chose to use the highly emotive images resulting from the Syrian chemical attack.

Unfortunately as a wire service provider to thousands of global media outlets, the headline and accompanying image spread rapidly leaving casual readers under the false impression that Israel was responsible for killing or injuring Syrian children….

    Sad … but sadly, not surprising. It’s pitiful how the news outlets had NO qualms about conflating the two stories. Smh
