Media bias? What media bias? II

An 8/14/06 Associated Press headline reads "Rockets Hit Lebanon Despite Cease-Fire".

This sure as heck sounds like Israel has broken the cease-fire doesn't it? Well not really because if you bother to read down to the second paragraph of the story it goes on to say:

... Hezbollah guerrillas fired at least 10 Katyusha rockets that landed in southern Lebanon early Tuesday, the Israeli army said, adding that nobody was injured. The army said that none of the rockets, which were fired over a two-hour period, had crossed the border and so it had not responded.

Would you have written that headline for this story?
