CNN continues to put its foot in its mouth with its coverage of the ongoing Palestinian wave of terror.
Take the casually understated description above this interview with Israeli government spokesperson Mark Regev.
What are the sorts of things that “cause concern?” Israelis could be concerned by the cost of living, environmental issues, or a stubbed toe.
Concern is not an apt description for the fear that Israelis are experiencing, avoiding public transport, cafes and escorting their children to school in the morning.
But it’s one extreme to the other for CNN.
Israeli forces are most certainly not carrying out “reprisal attacks.” Palestinians are not dying as a result of Israelis taking revenge but because they have been shot while taking part in acts of violence.
But is it even Palestinians who are attacking Israelis? CNN doesn’t seem to know.
Are Martians responsible for stabbing Israelis? Is it too difficult for CNN to keep one eye on Israeli media such as Times of Israel, which reports:
Palestinian media identified him as Ahmed Fathi Abu Sha’aban, 26, of Ras al-Amoud, East Jerusalem. He was reportedly recently released from Israeli prison after serving three years on terror charges.
CNN needs to get a grip on its shoddy coverage.
