Telling but not telling

CBC reports the murder of two Palestinian teenagers but fails to tell that both cases were cold-blooded assassinations by Israeli soldiers.

2 Palestinian teens shot dead in separate clashes with Israeli forces

In the Gaza case CBC says the murdered teenager was threatening the border fence. The reality was that he was zero threat, and just killed by the Israelis because they knew they could and suffer no consequences. The same was the case near Nablus - here the report even admits that one individual teenager was selected for assassination as he appeared to be a ringleader.

Of course CBC never mentions the fact that Israel has treated the Palestinians with over 60 years of abuse, and these murdered teenagers were acting in response to this oppression.
