Yellow Journalism is Back!

I remember in school, learning about the early years of the 20th century when yellow journalism was the rule rather than the exception.

CNN has proven that either history repeats itself or history just isn't's alive and kicking. Their reporting of the entire Israel-Gaza conflict of the past week has been totally skewed, but today they outdid even themselves.

Hundreds and hundreds of rockets have been falling on Israeli cities, towns, villages and rural areas, but for CNN it's "not about security". Nope, CNN, true to form, has found a way to blame Israel for trying to defend its citizens against this new form of terror.

All I can say is that there's a special place in hell for people who use their power to mislead the people who rely on them and trust them for accurate information.

I did just double my donation to Honest Reporting.
