ABC = Active-voice Bias Corporation

A recent posting highlighted ABC's bias, cluelessness or both.

It looks more like bias.

Check out the headlines below from their Middle East Conflict section and see if you can spot the odd one out:

Two Palestinians killed in more factional fighting

5 killed as Gaza fighting rages

One killed in Gaza hospital gun battle

Woman's death adds to rising Gaza toll

Palestinian Foreign Minister's convoy attacked

Officer loyal to Abbas killed after election call

Israel kills 2 Palestinian militants
With the exception of the last headline here, the party doing the killing is never mentioned in the active voice.
