Excellent primary reporting of the attacks on Lebanon, and their coverage in the media here.

Today’s examples:

The New York Times printed this picture with this caption today: “Israel used 155-millimeter shells against Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.” Against Hezbollah? There are no fixed positions for Hezbollah in South Lebanon.

Also, the Times said this: “Mr. Bush placed the blame for the tensions squarely on Syria for housing leaders of Hezbollah.” I mean, if this is considered the most serious newspaper in the US, what do you expect from the rest? There are of course NO Hizbullah leaders in Syria. They all are in Lebanon.

This is what happens when they let Hassan Fattah covers Lebanese events. In his article today, he said this: “But few Israeli officials seem to think that the Lebanese government, which is greatly influenced by Syria”. I mean, does anybody other than Hassan Fattah think that the Hariri government of Lebanon, which all but declared war on Syria and which is greatly influenced by France and US, is “greatly influenced by Syria?”.
