Castiest Christian clash; CBCNN blames police

Orthodox march lathicharged

The headline suggests that the police acted without provocation against the faithful. Notice the absence of the word "Christians". And the carefully inserted "allegations".

The violence began at 4.30 p.m. when some protestors allegedly threw stones at the police.
They allegedly mobbed and beat up two police officers.

But the allegations by Church authorities become facts mysteriously.

The Church authorities said journalists had assaulted one of their members in front of the police.
