Yahoo News Uses Pics of Grieving Muslims to Represent Both Israeli and Gaza Losses

No anti-Israel bias at Yahoo News. Nope, none at all.

Here’s the Yahoo News home page. See the two stories I’ve highlighted with yellow arrows? One is about the Hamas rockets that killed three Israelis, and the other is about a Muslim whose son was killed by a rocket fired by Israel in self-defense.

Okay – let’s stay neutral here. It would make sense to use a photo that represents the anguish of the Israelis in the story about the Israeli losses, and a photo that represents the anguish of the Muslim in the story about his loss. I mean, my own views aside, that would seem to be the journalistically ethical thing to do.

But Yahoo News knows better. It ain’t about ethics, but about sowing sympathy for Muslims and hatred for Israel. Because if you click on the story about the Muslim father’s loss, you get this picture…of a grieving Muslim:

And if you click on the story about the Israeli losses, you get THIS picture…of grieving Muslims:

Although this is an AP story, Yahoo News still chooses which photos to run. So, yep, Yahoo News used emotionally-charged photos of grieving Muslims to illustrate both Gaza and Israeli losses. Because apparently Jews never grieve. I mean, what with framing Muslims for 9/11 and faking the Holocaust, who has the time?
