“In a reporting gaffe, CNN superimposed their preliminary coverage of the terror attack with the headline: ‘Deadly attack on Jerusalem mosque.'” Isn’t it funny how all these mainstream media “gaffes” all go in one direction. You will never ever see an attack on a mosque labeled as an attack on a synagogue.
“‘Guardian’ deletes reference to Palestinians, CNN labels synagogue ‘mosque,'” Jerusalem Post, November 18, 2014:
From mistaking the Har Nof synagogue where Tuesday’s terror attack took place for a mosque, to deleting references to Palestinian perpetrators, some of the international media continued to report on the events in Israel in an eyebrow-raising manner on Tuesday.
The website of British newspaper The Guardian ran a story about the attack from Reuters. The wire dispatch the agency sent included the headline ‘Palestinians kill four in Jerusalem synagogue attack’ and led with the sentence: ”Two Palestinians armed with a meat cleaver and a gun killed four people in a Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday before being shot dead by police….”
However The Guardian changed their headline to “Four worshipers killed in attack on Jerusalem synagogue” and in their lead, they also excised any reference to Palestinians, publishing: “Two men armed with axes, knives and a pistol have killed four Israelis and wounded several others in a Jerusalem synagogue …”
In another questionable slant on its coverage, CBC headline their report on the attack with: “Jerusalem police fatally shoot 2 after apparent synagogue attack.”
In a reporting gaffe, CNN superimposed their preliminary coverage of the terror attack with the headline: “Deadly attack on Jerusalem mosque.”
