Anti-Semitism

I keep hearing about Mel Gibson's tirade and how horrible it was. Of course, this comes from the same media that bashes everything Israel does. If Israel tries to stop Hezbollah, it's because Israel is a horrible, warmongering nation--that's a given, according to the media. If Mel Gibson calls Jews warmongers, it's because he's a horrible, violent Catholic.
Hmm...Jewish state is evil, Catholic is evil for denigrating Jews...
Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's right to make those comments, but I also don't think it's right to have a news story about one man's anti-Semitism and follow it up with how horrible the Jewish state is. Besides, he has admitted that what he said was horrible, fessed up to his alcohol problem, and managed not to kill anyone. If he were a Kennedy, it would take a lot more to even make the news, much less garner the immense disapproval.
