Mediocre Media and Israel Rant

The coverage of the Israel-Hezbollah war in Quebec's principal French media outlet, La Presse, disgusts me with its horrendous anti-Israel, pro-terrorism bias.

Their front-page the other day said that the war was really tough on "everyone," meaning both "Muslims and Christians." In other words Jews aren't suffering of course.

In the same issue, there was a major feature on Hezbollahland, or Hezbolland, as they chose to mistranslate the English. After a line or two about how they're restricting the media's access to information, the rest of the piece was a sympathetic portrayal of a "resistance" movement (resisting peace, I suppose) that is working in the best interests of the forgotten-by-the-world Shiite Lebanese. You'd think a profile of them would give some significant coverage to their terrorist activity. But no, that might not earn sympathy for the terrorists.

I really hate the mainstream media.
