More Ambulance Obfuscation

This week, reporters criticized Israel for not giving unlimited free access to Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances. See for example:

ST. PETERSBURG (FLORIDA) TIMES – correspondent Susan Taylor Martin
http://www.sptimes.com/2002/04/04/Columns/Ambulances_at_bay__wo.shtml

THE WASHINGTON POST – correspondent Keith Richburg (front page article)

Both reporters spent 1,000 words criticizing Israeli policy, and then bury this crucial information at the very end of the article: Israel has stopped ambulances because Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances have already been caught delivering fighters and weapons to the front lines, including transporting a suicide bomb belt hidden in the stretcher.

If you believe these articles represent imbalanced reporting, write a letter to the editor in your own words, using the above points as a basis.
