UK Reporter Commits Real Journalism In Interview With Israel's Chief Spokesman

Mark Regev dutifully repeated his talking points under sharp questioning from UK Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow.

Whatever your opinion of the current situation in the Middle East is, wouldn't you rather watch an interview like this than the one Regev gave Chris Hayes where he just repeated the same talking points with no real pushback?

Anchor Jon Snow begins with pointed questioning about the beach bombings that killed four Palestinian children playing on the beach, and from there takes Regev through other Israeli actions that have caused eyebrows to raise.

I found this interview refreshing because for once a journalist actually took some facts and put them in front of their interview subject instead of simply allowing them to filibuster.

American media, take a lesson.
