CNN.com opened and closed its May 26, 2010 article on Israeli air strikes in Gaza with an oft used and well documented technique to slant the story toward the Israeli perspective: retaliation. The opening paragraph described the air strikes as "retaliation for mortar shells fired into Israel from Gaza." The closing paragraph quoted the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) describing the strikes as a "'response to the firing of two mortar shells' into Israel."
