Local news station NECN relies heavily on ABC News for their international news coverage, and they're using ABC News for covering the Israeli defensive attacks against Hamas in Gaza Strip. Talk about skewed news! This morning, ABC News reporter Simon McGregor covered the attacks on Gaza Strip with repeated videos of injured and dead children. Yes, there are children being killed by Israel's defensive attacks against Hamas. Too bad Hamas launches its rocket attacks against Israeli civilians from apartment buildings and from people's homes, thereby inviting the death of its own innocent civilians. Hamas has been denounced by Muslims around the world for the tremendous violence and suffering it has brought to its own people, most recently by the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.
What was shocking in the ABC/NECN coverage this morning was that ABC News used a clip from Palestinian TV of a seven year old girl who lost her family in yesterday's bombing. (The source of video is Palestinian Media Watch) ABC/NECN played the part where the devastated young girl says "I woke up and my four year old sister next to me was dead." ABC/NECN left out the part what the girl also says: "I say, Hamas is the cause in the first place, of all the wars." Funny how they edited that video clip.
