The Age demonise Israel yet again

As Israel takes the necessary steps to punish the Hezbollah terrorists behind the acts of war, kidnappings and rockets, the left wing rag known as The Age is actually begging all civilians who might be in Lebanon to send pictures with camera phones or email.

Are you in Lebanon, or do you have family or friends there? SMS your photos and video to 0416 905 403 or email

This is a sickening breach of journalistic standards. Don't they have their own photographers in the region ? Clearly they are hungry for some images to make Israel look bad. I have never heard of The Age asking Jewish Australians to send in images from an Israeli town under terrorist attacks. Why ? Because that would evoke reader sympathy with Israel, and the socialist editors at The Age couldn't have that.
