Israel: Hamas Raids UN Aid in Gaza

Justin wonders why this story, on the United Nations accusing Hamas police in Gaza Strip of seizing thousands of blankets and food parcels meant for needy residents, is not displayed in any of the mainstream media outlets.

    Stories such as this are almost never aired or printed in the mainstream media. The reason is it doesn’t fit their profile of victim vs. aggressor. As a now retired writer/journalist/public relations pro, I spent years begging, pleading, urging media types to run articles that they simply ignored. They also, largely, ignored op-ed pieces, if it didn’t fit into their preconceived notion of what was politically correct. Even The New York Times has gone in this direction. By example, they have yet to give credence to documented information that Hamas fought in civilian clothes, used civilians as human shields, used ambulances as military cover, etc. Just a couple of days ago the UNRWA acknowledged that Israel did not hit a UN school, but I have not seen an article on this in The Times or any other mass media outlet.
