Irit Goldman: Mideast coverage appears one-sided

June 18, 2014 

I was just wondering why when Israel retaliates back (and people get hurt) against launching missiles into populated territories it gets substantial coverage in The Bee, but when terrorists shoot missiles into Israel (like last Friday, to Ashkelon) there is no mention in The Bee.

Why is it that when Israel refuses to resume talks with the Palestinian government that includes Hamas, a known terror organization, it hits front page, but when Hamas kidnaps three teenagers traveling in Israel to go home, it only gets a small sidebar on The Bee that is basically unnoticed? Makes me wonder...
