Only one side of the story

There must be a reason for it, but damned if I know it; Arafat’s widow is back in the media spotlight. This is the start of the Guardian’s coverage:

Now that’s what I call giving one side of the story. The Guardian is prepared to put into print what many Palestinians believe – despite any evidence in support of such beliefs – namely that Israeli agents poisoned Arafat. But there’s no sign of what many Israelis believe: that Arafat was a predatory pedophile homosexual who died of AIDS. In fairness – ha! – the Guardian should be giving equal weight to these rumors. The only difference between the rumors, is that there appears to be some evidence for the Israeli ones. (Like here.) Do you think that’s the reason the Guardian won’t go there – it might be true?
