"They're shouting Heil Hitler. If it helps, pretend they're conservatives."
Hear no evil. See no evil. Report no evil.
When I posted the video of anti-Israel protesters chanting “Heil Hitler” at pro-Israel supporters during Ezra Levant’s rally in Calgary Thursday (see here) you absolutely knew there was no way that attending media didn’t witness it and stayed silent – now we have proof that at least one did exactly that.
While reading this piece “Silent vigil Palestinian solidarity” I noticed Calgary Herald reporter Erika Stark omitted the fact that Israel supporters were attacked even after referencing the event where it happened:
Meanwhile on Twitter, Stark ever so delicately drops a tiny little hint that something a tad uncouth may be happening on the pro-Hamas side.
Pro-Palestinian supporters are here across the street. Tensions rising. They're shouting things I shouldn't tweet. pic.twitter.com/ibNAzhLc9x

Is that what reporters do now? They don't report? People on Twitter had some thoughts on that.
@erikamstark You heard them yelling "Heil Hitler" at these Jews and refused to report it - why haven't you handed in your resignation yet?

@erikamstark Why shouldn't you tweet what they're shouting? They're shouting Heil Hitler. If it helps, pretend they're conservatives.
