Sun headline gets it backward on Israel/Islamic Jihad confrontation

November 01, 2011

The Sun recently ran an article titled "Israel bombs Islamic Jihad base, killing 5." I must object to your method of reporting.

The article gives the impression that Israel started bombing the base with no reason. It is only in paragraphs two and three that you state that Islamic Jihad launched rockets into Israel last week. It appears that you are intentionally giving the wrong impression to someone who only reads the headline. Why not state that Jihad launched rockets and Israel retaliated?
