|Jewish News: 48 pages but no room for the story|
Both of these papers go to print on Thursday. For them the 'best' possible time for a news story to happen is Wednesday morning as it gives them time to cover the story properly while also presenting it as fresh news. The murder of Eden Atias was announced on Wednesday morning and so should have been their lead. Despite this the Jewish News does not find any room at all for the story in any of its 48 pages - not even in the 'Israel news' section or the 'world news' section. Its front page story shown here is obviously of far greater significance.

Like the rest of the media there is also a continued news blackout of the ongoing appalling violence against Jews in the Mount Scopus area of Jerusalem. Presumably under pressure from Obama, the Government of Israel seems to have abdicated its repsonisibility to defend its citizens (as brilliantly expressed in this article). And it seems that news of Jewish Israelis under attack is now the sole responsibility of a handful of bloggers.
