The headlines did not blame the Hamas for violating the cease-fire, rather were more neutralized such as “Gazan tulitauko rikkoutui tiistaina” (HS), “Gazan tulitauko horjuu” (IS), “Gazan tulitaukoa rikottiin” (IL), and the well-biased YLE that have to mention Israel in each and every headline – “Israelin ilmavoimat iski Gazaan” – mentioning only in the content of the short article the road-bomb incident that triggered this air attack. I’m amazed how they manage to change the order of incident occurrences to fit their ideology. One can only imagine the headlines, had the cease-fire would have been violated by Israel. And … surprise surprise! YLE did not even mention this incident in their main 20:30 TV news. I say it again to make it clear – not a report, not even a side issue. nothing. A violation of the cease fire and nothing.
How true to form, and the traditional news media believes that their street cred is higher than ever! The people know better, and are looking to the Internet in ever increasing numbers for alternative news sources to the dreck that being promulgated by these highly corrupted and ineffectual news gatherers.
