"World Rallies Around Palestinians"... Anti-Zionist CNN?

Sorry about the light blogging. Holidays and busy with our twins the past couple days...

Anyway, interesting headline from CNN on the conflict in the Middle East:

"World rallies around Palestinians amid Gaza offensive"

Sure CNN is a bit left-leaning, but I didn't know it was part of the leftwing, anti-Israel faction that Jimmy Carter and some other Democrats are a part of.

WSJ's James Taranto has a good commentary on this:

"... The U.S. Census Bureau estimates the world's population at around 6.75 billion. By our back-of-the-envelope calculation, the protesters in CNN's report accounts for roughly one-millionth of that number, and about half of them are in countries ruled by autocracies that use anti-Semitism as a tool to preserve their power.

Yet the network headlines the story "World Rallies Around Palestinians Amid Gaza Offensive." This is an enormous exaggeration. Or maybe it is a small world after all."
