Tuesday, January 20th, 2009 Two papers tells a different story, or rather the same story in different ways. “Israeli Shells Kill 40 At Gaza U.N. School” (New York Times headline, Jan. 7).   Or was it, “Hamas In Human Shield Atrocity: Uses School As Mortar Lair Where Children Die” (New York Post headline, Jan. 7).   Or one paper can tell two different stories from one set of facts: “[We] fear the assault on Gaza has passed the point of diminishing returns” (N.Y. Times editorial, Jan. 16).   “A senior Hamas leader, Said Siam, was killed along with his brother and his son when Israel bombed the house that they were in. Mr. Siam was the powerful interior minister of the Hamas-run government in Gaza and the overall chief of its security forces, a significant blow for Hamas…” (N.Y. Times story, Jan. 16).
