How else can one explain the front page teaser of such an evocative story, in the country's leading daily? The heading 'mildly' states:
'Infant caught up in police raid dies'.It's as if the police are being absolved from blame. One can even conclude the tragedy was accidental.
Notice the difference with the main story, tucked in the inside pages.
The impression is that this was a deliberate act and the riot police are directly responsible for the infant's death.
Why didn't the front page teaser read something close to:
'Infant beaten up by riot police dies'?One can almost detect something sinister, here.
Whether it's fear by the paper to represent the entire truth, or tactically seeking to distance itself from prominently apportioning blame, it's clear in this instance that this sad story, is being handled subjectively.
