101 Dalmatians

One of Reuters' popular propaganda mantras -- a false, fabricated, or misleading construct appearing repeatedly in the agency's stories -- has made its 101st appearance:
U.S.-brokered peace talks collapsed a year ago after Netanyahu refused to extend a 10-month limited moratorium on construction in Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinian Arabs did not passively "collapse"; they were unilaterally terminated by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.  Reuters correspondent Dan Williams and Editor-in-Charge Jeffrey Heller are prevaricating here, and in an effort to suggest that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was responsible for the failed negotiations, employ a logical fallacy known as post hoc ergo propter hoc (after this, therefore, because of this).

Those pups reproduce like mad, don't they?
