Lying headline watch

A top Islamic Jihad leader was killed last night when his car exploded in an apparent "work accident." Israel, which is not shy about admitting when it kills terrorists, denied that they were behind this attack.

So why do so many "news" organizations say that Israel did it (or credit the Palestinian Arab "Police" with telling the truth)?
