Poor and inaccurate coverage of Palestinian child killed by Israeli forces by CTV News

As a professional journalist reporting on armed conflict, you have an obligation to be skeptical of official reports from an armed aggressor. The Israeli military’s-vague allusion to a person with an“explosive device” should have immediately triggered doubt in your mind as to the transparency of the Israeli military’s account.The DCIP report, on the other hand, also points out that Al-Aydi was shot by a sniper–something the AP/CTV story ignored. The general public deserves much better journalism on such reports.
