U.S. Media & the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land
This pivotal video exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites–working in combination with Israeli public relations strategies–exercise a powerful influence over news reporting about the Middle East conflict. Combining American and British TV news clips with observations of analysts, journalists, and political activists, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking media comparison and an examination of factors that have distorted U.S. media coverage and, in turn, American public opinion.
I cannot recommend this documentary too highly. It should be required viewing for every student, for every taxpayer who is subsidizing the Israeli military machine, for every citizen in the United States.
