This is a copy of letter I sent to Jerrold Kessel at CNN,, 6/5/02

Dear Mr. Kessel,

I would like to bring to your attention more of the disturbing, growing = media bias existing in CNN Europe.

Today, after a horrific terrorist attack in Israel, the Main Page of the CNN Europe website shows a picture of an Israeli tank with its barrel aimed at the viewer.

The Headline reads,”Israeli Tanks Enter Jenin”.

When you click on the headline, the next page shows your article “Car Bomb Kills 16 on Bus in Israel”.

Why wasn’t your article with the burnt out shell of the bus on the Front Page where it should have been? This is consistant with CNN’s incessant portrayal of Israel to Europe as aggressive while minimizing and redefining terrorism against Israel.

Just yesterday, CNN edited out an interview of the mother of an Israeli baby and grandmother killed by a suicide bomber and instead tried to perversely gain sympathy for the terrorist’s mother by showing her interview instead.

Is CNN so afraid of Arab populations and pressure in Europe that it would allow itself to be used as a tool of media propaganda and slander against Israel and its army? Please address this dire situation.
