CNN retracts mean headline on attack

CNN has retracted a headline that reported on Wednesday's Tel Aviv terror attack and placed the word “terror” in quotation marks.

“A previous – now removed – tweet appeared to call into question the Tel Aviv attack as an act of terrorism. It undoubtedly was,” wrote the network on its Twitter feed at 4:05 PM Thursday.

Wednesday's report did not mention once that the shootings were an act of terror.

The biased report caused outrage among readers, and Israeli diplomats reportedly let CNN know they were angry and expected the network to do something about the matter.
