When information leaks out that challenges this narrative, they respond with anger, often attempting to cover-up the disclosures.Some of this may be due to fear of retaliation from Hamas, but some, no doubt, is motivated by anti-Semitism, and peer pressure, as well as editorial policies handed down from the top of their organizations.

    CNN's International correspondent Diana Magnay has been removed from covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after she branded a group of Israelis 'scum' on Thursday.
