    Ah, our wonderful "American" media. Yahoo news has a headline today about a scientist arrested for spying -- but guess what's not in the headline? One word. Can you guess? Give that 2-year-old boy a lollipop -- that's right! The word Israel. As in "spying for Israel." You know, as in what the story is all about! (The lengths to which the American media goes (GOES, not GO) to save the Jewish state embarrassment. My favorite is their use of "targeted assassination." A lot of copy editors out there might think that's a bit of a redundancy, that an assassintation IS picking your target. But to their bosses? No. They're "targeted assassinations.") And the NY Times regarding the scientist alleged to have spied for Israel? Twelve hours after the Israeli press broke the story there's still nothing. But like I've always said, if you want to know what's going on in American today, read Israeli newspapers (even the J Post!). And if that don't say all about America today I don't know what does.
