Love him or hate him, Shimon Peres seems to be the only Israeli politician capable of generating such shiny MSM coverage. This example of what’s known in journalism parlance as a "glow job" comes from the Toronto Star’s Oakland Ross:
"His morning labours at an end, the grey-maned elder statesman took his leave of the room through a gauntlet of proffered handshakes and good wishes, having charmed just about everybody in sight ? and with a full day’s schedule still ahead.
Not bad for an 84-year-old."
