The media, deceitful everywhere you look.
[…]But as I suspected, the ABC just needed the time to think of a way to spin the indefensible into an attack on its preferred villains. And – bingo: Media Watch last night indeed spun furiously, whispering its criticism of anti-Semitism but bellowing its fury with the Murdoch and Jewish forces which took out a mate. […]

Finally a belated admission from the Foreign Press Association of the way Hamas terrorists manipulated a largely cowed foreign media:
The FPA protests in the strongest terms the blatant, incessant, forceful and unorthodox methods employed by the Hamas authorities and their representatives against visiting international journalists in Gaza over the past month.

We are also aware that Hamas is trying to put in place a “vetting” procedure that would, in effect, allow for the blacklisting of specific journalists. Such a procedure is vehemently opposed by the FPA.
Why have almost none of the journalists embedded in Hamas territory said this much in their reports?
