CNN Breathless Over Tunisian Tear Gas

You'll never see a video like this come from the West Bank.

A CNN film crew was caught up in some Tunisian tear gas. At around the 3:00 minute mark, photographer Mary Rogers poo-poos concern for her health, and even comments with a wry smile:

[The police] were sorry I was gassed, but hey, it's part of our job, uh, on occasion. These guys, the Tunisians, have some nasty stuff.

Can you imagine Western journos covering Bilin security fence protests breathlessly gushing for the IDF? Why is the world only uptight about tear gas when Israel is involved?

Nobody -- and I mean nobody -- dies from tear gas.
