Reuters Soft-pedals Human Rights Abuse by Hamas

Employing children in military units, much less terrorist outfits, is a slam dunk case of human rights abuse. But not to Reuters, Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs notes:

Just when you think the mainstream wire services can’t possibly debase themselves any further, they release a photograph like this one, taken by Reuters Palestinian propagandist Ibraheem Abu Mustafa, with an unbelievably sick and distorted caption:

I'd have to disagree with Johnson on his headline ("Reuters Hits Rock Bottom") though. Reuters hit rock-bottom long ago. They just kept drilling downward.
