Talk About Media Bias! (And Talk About Robotic Snakes!)

Listen to this ABC newsreader cheerily predicting that Israeli combat units “could eventually be destroyed.”

But don’t dash off that outraged press release just yet Camera! It was an innocent slip-up. The news reader meant to say “deployed,” not “destroyed,” and quickly corrected herself.

The segment was about a six-foot-long, remote-controlled robotic snake that the Israeli military has invented for reconnaissance, which the newsreader’s colleague pronounced “pretty cool.”
