New mothers failed by NHS, says watchdog

Mothers are being failed by the NHS, it has been claimed, after a report branded half of "crumbling" maternity units fair or weak.
A shortage of midwives means mothers and babies are often sent home before they are ready and do not receive the help they need to start breastfeeding, said the Healthcare Commission.;jsessionid=FNLA0H1YPXDTNQFIQMGSFGGAVCBQWIV0?xml=/news/2008/01/25/nhs125.xml

Hi, I like the idea. But don't you need to do more than post bad news about other countries. Don't you have to point out how those articles are misrepresentative? Maybe even draw the lines of how similar techniques are used on Israeli news?

The underlying theme of news on Israel is that they are aggressive and controlling. A common theme of anti-semitism. It's a hard one to fight, because other countries face different prejudges, i.e. France is a wimp, America is warmongering, etc..

I hope you start adding some commentary to clarify the points :).

Thanks for setting this all up!!
