AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Israellycool has more on despicable media bias of AP

AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving: “

There are certain things in life that are certain. You know, things like death, taxes…AP photographers showing their bias against Israel.

Case in point: here’s AP photographer Muhammed Muheisen on today’s terror attack.


The body of a Palestinian is seen, following a knife incident in the West Bank settlement of Shilo, near Nablus, Monday, March 31, 2008. In West Bank violence Monday, a Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli hitchhikers near a Jewish settlement was shot and killed by an armed Israeli civilian, Israeli police said. One of the hitchhikers opened fire after the Palestinian pulled a knife, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, calling the shooting self-defense. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

Leaving aside the fact that he has seen fit to take a picture of the terrorist’s lifeless body, allow me to translate key parts of the caption:

Knife ‘incident’ = terror attack perpetrated with a knife

‘West Bank violence’ = terror attack perpetrated by a palestinian

‘Pulled a knife’ = pulled out a knife to kill

And the cherry on top is the last part of the caption when Muheisen mentions the police spokesman ‘calling the shooting self-defense.’ As if it was something else.

Update: Besides being an AP photographer/propagandist, Muheisen also dabbles in blog commenting.

  2. Hi all great information here and good thread to comment on.

    Can I ask though – how did you get this picked up and into google news?

    Very impressive that this blog is syndicated through Google and is it something that is just up to Google or you actively created?

    Obviously this is a popular blog with great data so well done on your seo success..

  3. I simply needed to thank you very much all over again. I am not sure what I would’ve achieved without the type of aspects shared by you directly on such a concern. Previously it was a real frightening matter in my position, however , taking note of a new skilled approach you managed it forced me to weep over delight. Extremely happier for this advice and thus sincerely hope you find out what a great job you are always undertaking training the others via your web blog. Most probably you’ve never encountered any of us.
