Yesterday, we commented on the highly politicized NGO press releases appearing on Reuters AlertNet website. Digging into the "related articles" section of the Palestinian territories portion of the site, we find this whopper propaganda piece from June written by Katie Nguyen. (Note that Nguyen is not an aid worker but a Reuters AlertNet correspondent based in London).
A revealing and informative way to analyze Reuters' handling and perspective on the conflict is to simply list the descriptive terms employed by the writer to advance her story. Let's have a look.
For Nguyen, Israel:
while the Palestinians:
3,000 rockets and mortars launched against Israeli civilian communities by Palestinian terrorists in 2008 alone.
We can think of a few adjectives to describe that side of the story.
