Title of Piece in form of Sensationalist Headline
Subheading indicating that some incident took place in Israel about which initial reports are sketchy
by British Journalist, 28th September 2010
This introductory paragraph fails to mention said sketchiness but is in no doubt that the Israeli military and/or the government has committed a heinous deed worthy of journalistic overreaction.
Here we insert name of location of incident alongside previous incident suggesting continuity with previous incident and hence likely similar cause. Journalistic embellishment including placing of incident location in sentence alongside Bosnia, Somalia and Rwanda indicating both journalist's awareness of such contexts, and atrocity of Israeli incident, in spite of there being no similarity whatsoever.
Employment of words such as 'massacre', 'human right abuse' and 'war crimes' but with weasel words like 'alleged' and 'observers suggested' inserted to suggest impartiality of journalist and to shift the blame for any future correction of factual statements. A quote from a local woman who was hiding in her basement the whole time expresses her belief that "hundreds" are dead.
Cite commentary from neutral source such as Hamas or other Islamic Brotherhood-connected entity decrying Israeli war crimes past, present and future. Add account from 'bystanding witness' who was not present but whose shock and terror at the news of the incident is itself newsworthy.
"Sound bite expressing shock and horror at incident"This paragraph does not mention homicide bombers or their placement anywhere near the location of incident. Nor does it mention the location of any nearby jihadists. Instead it provides a comment from a former freedom fighter living in the West who now represents a neutral charitable organisation with the words "congress" or "Islamic" in its name. He
"Suggests incident belongs in context of wider crimes against Palestinian people and touches on subjects which indicate that Israeli reaction was overreaction to Palestinian Action which was in itself only a reaction to something Israel was doing wrong".This is a bold quote taken from the main text indicating that if you read on you'll find it
Here is a cut and paste quote from Wikipedia on the recent history of the incident location.
This section questions how the incident might impact upon peace negotiations, and suggests that some other countries might want to talk to the Israeli government about it. At this point Journalist openly declares the neutral and unbiased nature of his reporting by mentioning an Israeli minister he has not bothered to contact about the incident, but hopes that the insertion of an Israeli name provides a balance to the piece.
This final paragraph provides the actual body count of said incident as though the news just came in as he was typing it, but suggests that this may only be a provisional figure, but even if it isn't, Israel will undoubtedly create more corpses next time there is an incident.
