How To Present Biased News

A comment of mine that I left here:

In reference to your news item on Israel shelling Gaza: that was a retaliatory act of self-defense, if anyone who would take the time to click on the link would find out for it reads there: “recent short-range rocket salvoes launches from the coastal enclave into the Jewish state.Two such salvoes, on Sunday and Monday, caused no casualties and were claimed by ultra-conservative…”

I checked your yesterday’s news roundup but those salvoes were not mentioned.

This is a biased way to present news. Too bad, also, that this is a blog that champions law and justice.
P.S. And note that Reuters prefers ignoring the state’s name as “Israel” but writes “the Jewish state”.
