Letter: Slanted facts

On Sunday, both the Times and the Daily published the same article about the Hamas/Israeli conflict in Gaza attributed to the Associated Press. The Daily’s headline read “Security Council urges Gaza truce; no sign of lull,” a pretty accurate description of what’s going on despite the text of the rather one-sided article.

The Times headline over the very same article read “U.N. Security Council urges Gaza truce; Israel ignores request, keeps bombing.” Putting an entirely one-sided and erroneous slant on the facts.

If the Times is brave enough to print this, I think they should also be wise enough to know that if they want to editorialize they should it on the opinion page and not on the world news page.
