Israeli President, Turkey PM In “Amicable” Conversation; Some Media Magnifies Dispute

CNN and other impartial media are downplaying the discussion between Turkey’s  Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres.

The media in Turkey and elsewhere are playing up the dust up, claiming Israel insulted Turkey and the Israeli side apologized.

That just isn’t so, Israel says.

Thankfully, some media remain unbiased and impartial, as we see in this CNN report:
