Palestinian Pit Bull

man bites dog? : Dry Bones cartoon.
I find the Media's coverage of our war to end eight years of attacks from Gaza really interesting.

Back in the old days, when journalists worked for newspapers and not in front of cameras ...back when they thought in concise headlines instead of short soundbites ...there was a piece of newspaper wisdom that went: "Dog Bites Man" is not News, News is when "Man Bites Dog".

So Israel being attacked from Gaza is just not newsworthy? Unimportant? Not part of the story? But our fighting back is?!

Your thoughts?
