Apparently CNN likes terrorist groups

So I clicked over to CNN a few minutes ago. And there, on the screen was a picture of flames. Next to it, a headline blaring "Israeli gunships hit fuel tank at Beirut airport." Of course, you have to read the story to understand that the airstrikes were a response to Hezbollah rocket attacks from Lebanon. It should be noted that the Lebanese government has in its cabinet members of Hezbollah's political wing.

And of course, the lead headline is not that Hezbollah has taken more hostages (Ehud Goldvasser, 31, from Nahariya, and Eldad Regev, 26, from the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Motzkin). It is not that Israel has been hit by 70 rockets in the past 24 hours.

I hope it allows you to have acess to stories...just like it did in Iraq. (For CNN's admission, the NY Times Piece is here, but you need a subscription. The Wall Street Journal piece is here and the Washington Times piece is here.) So thanks CNN for making it look like Israel is just bombing other countries randomly.
