    Disregard the misleading title in a NY Post column

    NY Post columnist Oli Coleman, on the Page Six gossip page, has a story Benjamin Netanyahu booed by audience at ‘Hamilton’ (emphasis added):

    There was a revolutionary spirit both on the stage and in the audience at “Hamilton” on Saturday night.

    Page Six is told that some in the crowd booed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as he took his seat at the Broadway smash.

    “The show started late because of his arrival — the heightened security slowed down seating,” said a theatergoer. “But he still entered and sat down before the lights went down, so everyone was focused on him. There was a lot of applause when he walked in, but definitely a few loud boos.”

    The substance of the report is accurate, the headline is misleading.

    Israelly Cool has the true story AND the video to prove it (emphasis in original):

    Revolutionary spirit?!

    Let’s get this straight. When he entered, there was a lot of applause, with a few loud boos. In other words, the applause outnumbered the boos, so a more appropriate headline would have been Benjamin Netanyahu applauded by audience at ‘Hamilton’, or evenBenjamin Netanyahu encounters a few boos at ‘Hamilton’. 

    Here’s the video:
