Storyline

This video shows how the foreign policy interests of American political elites-working in combination with Israeli public relations stratgies-influence US 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 brief historical overview, a striking media comparison, and an examination of factors that have distorted U.S. media coverage and, in turn, American public opinion. Written by exerpted from Media Education Foundation

Please give your 80mins to see this.....
11 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually vote but never comment on a movie as i feel it unnecessary.

However i request all western viewers who spend time watching various Hollywood flicks etc, to devote just 80mins of your life for watching this documentary. I see Hollywood movies with high ratings and 100,000s of votes. It makes me sad when i saw just around some 280 odd votes on this movie here. Ironically it should be opposite because this documentary is about suffering of men,women and children who are also humans like us, isn't it? I will not make any comment or judgment on movie as i leave it to the viewers to make their own judgment.

At last as you know that no movie is perfect so why i gave it a 10? Because it is my trend to give perfect score to films which are made for just cause more so when it is made for us to awake to reality of the world.
