The coverage of the Israel - Lebanon war thingy was just atrocious. I don't want to get into some huge debate about who started what, because it's just going to lead to someone (Yrautca) saying something ignorant and pissing me off. I just thought I'd post some observations.
I know it's easier to be specific about what's going on in Israel, since they have much better developed media relations, and it's safer there for the media to give better coverage. But I think they could try a little harder to convey how scary it is to be stuck in Lebanon right now. So far, in Lebanon, 183 people have been killed and around 600 or so wounded. In Israel, so far, 23 people have been killed and around 100 wounded. You'd never know it if you were just watching the coverage casually.
