Headline on the BBC (and a big headline on the Drudge Report): Syria ‘fires on Israel warplanes’
Headline on Al-Jazeera: Israeli jets ‘enter’ Syria airspace (Drudge has a lesser headline “Israeli planes had ‘dropped ammunition’ over desert areas of Syria…”)
Need I spell it out? The headlines are correct factually, but you get a completely different sense of the most relevant facts.
When you read a story on this page, at least you know beforehand that there’s going to be bias and a witty joke. Or a not-so-witty joke.
(As an aside: At least one of you has mentioned Liquid Egg Product is almost exclusively your source of news. After some reflection, this is more frightening than flattering, and I am hoping that declaration was hyperbole. If not, please get out more or something.)
In other news, Pavarotti dying is a big deal today.
(This post sucked, but I’ve got no time to polish it during work. Sorry.)
