What’s Not Being Said?

 

Its Pravda, you read the headlines for the facts that have been omitted:

Condolences for the family and friends who are devastated by this senseless death.

Conspiracy theorists aren’t geniuses, they’re just skeptical thinkers who can fill in the facts that are obviously missing from this headline.  “Naive Peace Activist Horrifically Murdered by Terrorists”  Would have been succinct, direct, and honest, but sadly doesn’t open the viewer to advertising messages…

CTV should be ashamed of these deceitful headlines.  I know better than to call for heads to roll — nobody will be fired for this. The organization has no shame, because the staffers who operate it, have no shame.

    Nice use of the passive. She “went missing” and “died.” How about

    Hamas Terrorists Kidnapped and Murdered Canadian Peace Activist (and They’d Do the Same to YOU!)

    They need to be called out on it. They shouldn’t be allowed to sweep it under the carpet. They need to be mocked for it. 

    I’m afraid it’s going to lower their self-esteem some. Good.

    She was never really missing, her body was at the morgue… Just unidentified.

    Which to me, means she died a horrible death.

    Very similar to NBC news reporting “Man dies after hitting head during Israel and Palestinian rallies in California, officials say.” after Paul Kessler was struck by a protester, knocked to the ground and died.

    Zackly.  Even if they were trying to be careful until facts rolled in, had that been an antifa drone killed at a Trump rally, the headline would have been “Student dead in MAGA violence at Trump rally — witnesses describe horror.”

    Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    In fact, brained with a bullhorn.

    Absolutely, the vagueness and caution only applies when the violence is projected one direction….

    She was surrounded by enthusiastic Palestinians shouting religious slogans of encouragement at the time of her death from unknown causes.

    “Kinetic Justice” might be the euphemism.

    She died in the midst of a worship service.
