The media and the Israeli occupation

Posted: June 24, 2010 in International politics, Media & Journalism

In my post, Apartheid Israeli-style, I recommended some alternative reading on the Israeli occupation and repression of the West Bank and Gaza; alternative, that is, in the sense that the conventional history and wisdom on the issue is so overwhelmingly pro-Israeli and subject to what David Miller of Spin Watch calls a “control culture” of unrelenting PR and lobby politics.  Today, I’m adding an excellent documentary by the American Media Education Foundation, called: Peace,Propaganda and the Promised Land: Media and the Israeli-Palestine Conflict. It’s just over an hour in length but very well worth the time if you’re looking for a calmly stated indictment of American media coverage of the conflict.
