News broke of a female police officer being stabbed to death by ISIS (or so they claim) on Saturday morning.
The Israeli officer was Hadas Malka and only 23yrs-old.
But for some reason these details didn’t seem important enough for the MSM’s news headlines.
What did matter for the BBC was that 3 Palestinians were killed.
Their title read ‘Three Palestinians Killed After Deadly Stabbing in Jerusalem’.
They neglected to mention that the dead Palestinians were killed because they were in the process of attacking the Israeli police officer.
According to The Times of Israel the incident was “a coordinated stabbing and shooting terror attack in two areas near Jerusalem’s Old City.”
Hadas Malka died following the assault that took place last night.
She was reportedly attacked while responding to one Palestinian terrorist’s shooting assault. He was with another terrorist armed with a knife.
Malka was stabbed in the upper torso by a third Palestinian terrorist while she was en rout to the scene.
She was rushed into emergency surgery, however succumbed to her wounds after the operation.
The Times of Israel reports that “at least four more people were injured in the attacks, including another cop.”
All three attackers were “neutralized.”

Knowing the full story the information in the title is true, but the BBC has received some heat for the misleading headline.

Just bad reporting Is it more important to report the truth or placate an anti-Israel audience? 3 armedTerrorists murdered a policewoman!

Another misleading headline by BBC that looks for sympathy for the attacker and makes the victims look like the bad guys

Three TERRORISTS and one policewoman. Skewed news by the BBC. Once, BBC was the voice of the free world. Now a terrorists mouthpiece. Shame.

Your headline is beyond offensive. Try the truth

They had just murdered a police officer. You fail to mention the basic facts. Making it appear they were killed for no reason.

Think before you tweet. Start by writing what the TERRORISTS did, then mention their fate. Shame on you.

Three Muslims shot dead by British police as people stabbed in Borough Market – Shame on the BBC's bias

As for the BBC’s article itself, its account of the incident appears to match The Times of Israel’s.
Its lede reads, “Israeli police have shot dead three Palestinians after a deadly knife attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem, in which a policewoman died.”
The MSM outlet changed the title of the article on the website, but haven’t deleted the original tweet.
Is this typical PC behavior or is this something much worse?
