NBC News Crew Witnesses Gaza Airstrike (TVNewser)
NBC News correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin and his crew witnessed an Israeli airstrike that killed four children at a port in Gaza Wednesday. Mohyeldin, who was also caught in the crossfire as Israeli soldiers fired rubber bullets on crowds in East Jerusalem earlier this month, called in to the West Coast edition of Today to describe what he saw, saying it was “a chaotic scene.” TVNewser Hours later, it was chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel who reported the story for Nightly News. FishbowlDC On Wednesday afternoon’s The Lead With Jake Tapper, the CNN host spoke over the phone with the Wall Street Journal’s Middle East correspondent Nick Casey for what proved to be a very intense interview. Casey was located near where the strike took place. Mashable The four children were killed by Israeli airstrikes that hit in close proximity to al-Deira Hotel, a Gaza City hotel full of foreign journalists. The attack came at around 4 p.m. local time and appeared to be the result of a naval shell. At least two additional children were injured, according to local reports. THR The BBC has defended its coverage of the latest Israeli air strikes in Gaza among accusations that the British public broadcaster is too pro-Israeli in its reporting on the region’s escalating conflict. The conflict has been the subject of extensive BBC news coverage, but a prominent pro-Palestine group claims the broadcaster’s programs have been systematically “entirely devoid of context or background.” The Palestine Solidarity Campaign posted an online open letter to BBC director general Tony Hall criticizing the broadcaster for not illustrating what it considers key aspects of the conflict.

Zynga to Lay Off 520 Employees — 18 Percent of Staff — And Shutter New York And LA Offices (AllThingsD)
Zynga is laying off 18 percent of its workforce — which represents 520 employees — in a bid to reduce costs and more drastically restructure its troubled business toward mobile, according to sources close to the situation. Reuters One of the first firms to seize upon Facebook as a game-publishing platform years ago, Zynga has struggled to keep hold of players as people increasingly turn to their mobile devices — and games from Zynga’s rivals — for entertainment. Zynga’s chief executive, Mark Pincus, has shut studios, retired more than a dozen games and laid off hundreds of employees as part of a turnaround effort that focuses resources on developing mobile games.

In a June 24, 2011 report by Chris Cuomo, Internet dating background-check service provider Kelley Cahill alleged that her former boyfriend David Williams had lied about his marital status during their relationship, profited from the liaison and used Cahill to “prey” on other women.
