Alternate reality

Is it just me who finds this sort of Guardian nonsense offensive:


Check out the subtitle:

“Israeli police says rockets fired at Sderot”

What does that mean? Do the Guardian not trust the Israeli police? Does it mean the rockets do not exist in the world of the Guardian – even though Abbas condemned the rocket fire? Is it intended to be offensive for the sake of it? If there had been – heaven forbid! -a Guardian journalist in Sderot, wounded in such rocket fire, would that still have been the headline?

It’s a small example of a big problem. These guys live in another reality – except it is not real.
