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.

Like nothing you've ever seen!
20 November 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary about how our country (America) is sheltered by the media when it comes to the atrocities committed against the Palestinian people. It is sort of like Outfoxed (an excellent documentary about the bias of the Fox New Channel), yet completely relating to the U.S. media coverage of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It is hard to watch at times but definitely opened my eyes to such things I never knew were happening. Sure I had an idea that our government always took sides when it came to the conflict, but to see how much the "Israeli PR Machine" influences our media is disgusting and, quite frankly, very disturbing. It is not a documentary made by Arabs, it is a U.S. production and features Rabbis, various media personnel, university professors, etc. It is a huge eye-opener and I recommend it to everyone.
