As Twitchy reported earlier, a 65-year-old Jewish man named Paul Kessler was allegedly murdered in Los Angeles by a pro-Palestinian protester who hit him in the head with a bullhorn. No one — we mean no one — can sink further than NBC News's reporting:

"Officials" also say this was a homicide and an investigation is underway.
TIME Magazine wasn't quite as bad, but they weren't good, either:

Community Notes time:
Readers added context
A Jewish man was killed by a pro-Palestine protester. He did not simply "die" at the Israel-Hamas protest. The medical examiner ruled Paul Kessler's death a homicide.

The headlines of Time and the NBC are both mind-bending and completely unsurprising.— stephen67 (@benpalmach1967) November 7, 2023
And Mr. Kessler didn't "confront" anyone. He was standing peaceably holding a flag.— Straight Arrow (@1820StraitArrow) November 7, 2023
An Israeli flag.
The people who tried to hide the reason for the massacre of "white privileged" kids are now labeling the murder of a Jew as "death by confrontation".— Emil Molla (@MollaEmil) November 7, 2023
I'm kind of surprised you guys didn't go with "quietly passed away in his sleep".— Scotty P 🎸 (@Scott_7791) November 7, 2023
Interesting choice of words. Usually that's called murder or homicide, premeditated or not.— Denton Morris (@CryptoFiend45) November 7, 2023
It was an "attack." Media refuses to use this word.— Andrea E (@AAC0519) November 7, 2023
Aren’t you a little bit ashamed by framing a hate crime that led to this man being murdered like this?— Andreas (@sf_andreas) November 7, 2023
It's actually kind of impressive that TIME covered it at all, seeing as it was just some old Jewish guy.
