How To Make An Ugly Story Even Uglier to Fit Your Agenda

This is a cross-post from Backspin
The Guardian posted footage of yesterday’s scuffle in the Knesset.
It’s a legitimate story when Israel’s parliament has an ugly moment. But The Guardian misrepresents the story by making it even uglier.
How?
The video specifically highlights that Israeli Arab MKs were ejected despite the fact that there were a total of 10 MKs ejected during the session — mostly Jews.
It seems to me that The Guardian is singling out the ejection of Arab MKs to push an agenda that Israel discriminates. You’ll have to see the Jerusalem Post for the context The Guardian lacks.
