Distorted Reporting

A short letter from Steven Katsineris.


 Dear Editor,

Watching the news on TV regarding Palestine, when the numbers of killed and injured are mentioned, the reporters always start with the figure of Israelis first, even though the total of Palestinians deaths and injuries is constantly more.

 Currently, Israeli forces have killed 30 Palestinians and injured 1,400, many of them children, but the media focuses on Israelis, 8 dead and 30 injured. This same thing happened all the time in reporting casualties in the last Gaza conflict as well. With such biased reporting someone needs to say Palestinian lives matter too.

Steven Katsineris,
