NYTimes Spinning

Hamas walks out of peace talks, plans and carries out a joint operation with Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, and tells the world:

Abdel Aziz Rantisi, a Hamas leader, said the attack was intended to send a message to the Palestinian leadership that Palestinians will continue to fight Israel and will not "surrender to the pressure exerted by Israel and the United States of America."
"We are unified in the trenches of resistance," he said.
And how does the New York Times see it when Abdel Aziz Rantisi is targeted?
The botched attack against Abdel Aziz Rantisi, which killed his bodyguard and a bystander, came just as Hamas was considering a truce with Israel....
That's the tease on the Times Front Page. If you read the article you'll get a more balanced discussion but their bias is unmistakable.
