PEACE, PROPAGANDA AND THE PROMISED LAND: U.S. Media and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
This pivotal program 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, viewers are challenged by a striking media comparison and an examination of factors that have distorted U.S. media coverage and, in turn, American public opinion.
Interviewees include Seth Ackerman, Mjr. Stav Adivi, Rabbi Arik Ascherman, Hanan Ashrawi, Noam Chomsky, Robert Fisk, Dr. Neve Gordon, Toufic Haddad, Sam Husseini, Hussein Ibish, Robert Jensen, Rabbi Michael Lerner, Karen Pfeifer, Alisa Solomon, and Gila Svirsky.
