"Let's see how this gets covered in the press"

We just did, didn't we? One buried sentence (probably to be edited out shortly). AP is not going to disparage an ally in the war on Bush.

"The press". The press. The. Press. Hmm. But what kind of press? An olive press? A trouser press?

Rocket hits hospital window
JERUSALEM (AP) — All 450 patients at a northern Israel hospital are safe, after a Hezbollah rocket hit a top-floor window.

Hospital officials say there's a relatively small amount of damage. As for the patients, they'd all been moved to underground rooms when the fighting began. All of the above-ground floors are empty.

Meanwhile, Israel hit militant positions and crushed homes in southern Lebanon. As many as 12 people reportedly died.

The Israeli army says it's killed about 200 militants since the fighting began. Hezbollah only reports 35 casualties.

Here's a picture of the "broken window".

I love it! A "broken window." Might as well have been caused by a rock. Probably an accident. Whereas Israel is bulldozing houses where peaceful, non-militant adherents to the Religion of Peace live. Besides what were those people doing in a hospital anyway? Bad Israel. Bad!
