"Reporters Without Borders" silent on Hamas crimes

Gaza's Journalists Union has condemned a break-in at their headquarters today, in which a computer was stolen.

Yesterday, as I mentioned, another Gaza journalist was held by Hamas in solitary confinement for six hours and needed to be hospitalized.

At the Reporters Without Borders website, nothing has been written about any press freedom issues in Gaza or the West Bank since early May, even though there have been numerous published reports of actions against journalists as well as other relevant stories there in that timeframe.

In that same time period, no less than seven articles were written about problems with Israeli press freedom.

Is there any wonder that the media is disproportionately focused on demonizing Israel?
