Shame of the 'blame game' in coverage

There was a time when our politicians and media had one main fear when covering Middle East wars: that no one should ever call them anti-semitic.
Or so it was until the latest bloodbath in Gaza, which is being so graphically covered by journalists that our masters are suffering a new experience.
It's not fear of being called anti-semitic, but fear of their own viewers – ordinary folk so outraged by the war crimes committed against the women and children of Gaza that they are demanding to know why – even now – politicians are refusing to treat their own people like moral, decent, intelligent human beings.
