Can We Get the Sequencing Right, Please?

This story is typical. The Wall Street Journal teases a wire report about the bomb attack that killed an Israeli soldier today this way: "Gaza Violence Threatens Ceasefire." The AP story carried by the Journal reports: "The Israeli military said one soldier was killed and three were wounded in a bomb attack Tuesday morning on the Gaza-Israel border, while Hamas said one of its members had been wounded in an Israeli airstrike."

It takes a while to find out that the bomb attack on the Israeli soldiers came first. Just sayin'.
