Exclamation Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land

Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites--oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others--work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies to exercise a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported. Through the voices of scholars, media critics, peace activists, religious figures, and Middle East experts, Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land carefully analyzes and explains how--through the use of language, framing and context--the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza remains hidden in the news media, and Israeli colonization of the occupied territories appears to be a defensive move rather than an offensive one. The documentary also explores the ways that U.S. journalists, for reasons ranging from intimidation to a lack of thorough investigation, have become complicit in carrying out Israel's PR campaign. At its core, the documentary raises questions about the ethics and role of journalism, and the relationship between media and politics.

Those on the board who have been saying that the Main Stream Media [MSM] holds bias and shades what it reports will want to see this report. It is worth the hour that it takes to watch. It will support your ideas that the bias is there but you may not like some of where that leads.

It is a very good documentary no matter what your point of view.

Have a question for ya.

If GMSUCKS meets GMISBEST would the two of you self-destruct like an electron-positron pair or would the left hand be shaking the right?

The headline should read,: "Peace, Propaganda and the Land promised to whom."
