The writers of newspaper stories virtually never write the headlines over their stories. If there is bias, inaccuracy or imbalance in a headline, the responsibility rests with the newspaper, not the writer.
A headline on Page One of the Denver Post this week caught our eye. It did not reflect the content of the story. It put an anti-Israel slant, not justified by the facts of the story, on the news about the war.
The facts were rather simple and straightforward. Last Tuesday morning, a ceasefire in the current war between Israel and Hamas was proposed by Egypt.
Fact 1: Israel accepted.
Fact 2: Hamas did not.
