This cartoon begins with the headline “Mainstream media guide to Gaza coverage” and an illustration of a missile and a bomb. Under that headline are two columns. The first is titled “Do Say” with a list of words that have green ticks next to them, the other is titled “Don’t say” with a list of words with red crosses next to them. The list reads are follows:
Do say ‘raid’, don’t say ‘bombing’
Do say ‘died’, don’t say ‘killed’
Do say ‘militants’, don’t say ‘people’
Do say ‘targeted’, don’t say ‘obliterated’
