Post Post subject: ITV evening news - reporting on Israel attacks Reply with quote

letter to David Mannion:

Dear Mr Mannion,
Hello, I am writing to ask about yesterday evening's report on the terrible attack in Israel in which many people were tragically killed. I ask why in the ITV news there was no mention at all about the context in which this attack took place. Only the day before, a devastating attack in Palestine by the IDF left many dead and wounded and as reported on C4, the suicide bomber who committed the attack in Israel said the bombing was in revenge for these killings. I cannot understand why this was omitted in your report on ITV and yet via the same news agency ( ITN ) you clearly presented the information in the equivalent report. To me, this omission seems illogical and does not reflect well on the balance of your reporting.
I hope you are able to take some time to answer.
Best Wishes
