Article: Hamas leader is killed

Date: Sunday, August 1, 2010

This article factually reported on an Israeli airstrike killing a Hamas terrorist, although typically it avoided the use of any term with the root "terror."

Lack of Balance: The article stated in a straightforward manner that Israel killed Issa Batran and struck at smuggling tunnels and a Hamas training camp, stated "The Israeli military said it launched airstrikes against Hamas targets in Gaza after a rocket fired from Gaza exploded in the city of Ashkelon," implying a measure of doubt as to whether there really was a rocket fired and as to the reliability of the words of the Israeli military.
