I missed somehow that Israel represses info. Expected Israel is democracy, somewhat, until stumbled at Jewrusalem: Israeli Uncensored News website www.jewrusalem.org/en . Did anyone heard if Israel in fact censors information or that's a name only? News crew there is original, laughing out democrats and neo-cons and everyone else. I mean, I didn't encounter such reports on yahoo or other sources. Are they in fact censored or what?

Israel has a free press, I think. Just like every other democracy, the government spins, or slants the truth. So you are getting more or less the truth, but probably not all the truth.
In Israel's case this can perhaps be forgiven because they are surrounded by 300 million Arabs who want to wipe them off the face of the earth.

In the rush to be the first to publish or broadcast something mass media often gets the story wrong. If you look back in newspaper archives it becomes apparent that about 90% of stories containing editorial content were wrong.

News media should stick to reporting the facts and leave the opinion to the editorial pages.
