I don't know who attacked who. My point is that you don't know either. The article does not give you the facts to know. It is your biases as well as the bias in the article that causes your mind to fabricate any facts that you might need to justify your bias. Thats my point, nothing more. Your cognitive processes are showing.

OK, I give up.
The entire article is a complete fabrication.
Did you believe any of the other facts reported in the Post today? The weather? Do you think they lied outright about the Jewish girl having been harassed? Did they lie about the Arab girls chanting "Jew Jew Jew!" They did, in fact, report a pattern of events leading up to the beating. You think it was pure lies? Press bias is one thing, but you are asking us to attribute malice to this reporter in what is usually a more conservative voice among NYC papers.
There is plety of press criticism on FR, so jump right in: Do YOU have any evidence the reporter is fabricating? Any pattern of previous fabrication? Freepers catch lies in the Times all the time, but they always have facts and alternative sources to back it up. Do you have any facts about THIS reporter and THIS story to suggest it isn't straightforward reporting?
If not, I'd say YOUR biases are the ones showing.
