CNN Mixed Messages
While watching the CNN Headline News feed here at work, I was struck by how they're starting to get some thing right, and yet are so far off base in many other ways.

A CNN reporter was giving a rundown of the events in Israel in the past two days and referred to two Hamas "militants" killed in Apache missile strikes as "victims" of the Israeli action. It almost made me vomit. Hamas... victims? I can't even put my fury on that point to words.

However, this particular reporter then referred to the Apache strikes as "retaliation for Sunday's killing of four IDF soldiers". First time I've seen/heard any MMT (Mainstream Media Type) actually refer to these strikes in their proper context.

*sigh* Close, but no cigar, CNN.
