What a difference a word makes

Bias in the news media is hardly limited to the press here in the States, as the opening paragraph of this AFP article about an attempt to break a record for the world's biggest cheesecake demonstrates:

Palestinians with a sweet-tooth gathered on Saturday around a giant syrupy cheesecake treat they hope will set a new Guinness world record in their occupied West Bank city.
Anybody notice the one little unnecessary word that they included there? The one that has nothing to do with the cheesecake or the record?
