AP Illustrates a Deadly Roadside Terror Attack

Four Israelis, including a pregnant woman, were killed in roadside shooting tonight near Hebron tonight.

Photojournalists can be forgiven for not reaching terror scenes on a moment's notice. But judge for yourself the how appropriate or relevant these AP illustrations for the attack are.

I'm blaming AP's photo editors for this. Bernat Armangue's photos were taken during the day, hours before the attack happened.

You know what? **** AP
Self-censored.

wtf has that to do with a shooting.

One could argue the photos are indeed relevant: they explain the road blocks and the separation barrier.

Not that I expect the message to come through.

The point of the photos of course is to send a subliminal message implying that the murder of Jews by islamic terrorists is caused by Israel's "occupation" and therefore understandable and justifiable according to AP.

It would be nice (maybe, I'm asking too much?) if you picked one target address at AP for us to write to and complain.

Similarly, for all future posts like this. Show us something, and then give us an action we can take. (I know it's easy for ME to suggest things for YOU to do, but still, it would be helpful. Thank you so much, though, for the work you do.)
