Disclaimer:
”How the Media Rigs (=Falsifies)n2 News on Palestine and Israel”:
NB:
1. Regarding the large media corporations, thankfully there is the alternative media.
2. Not every media outlet is closed to the Palestinian story 100%, but very few exceptions.
3. Slowly we see improvements towards a more balanced reporting. (Or is this only wishful thinking?)

Intro

We present here some screen-dumps from the presentation for the
Washington Report on Middle East Affairs
by James North, on YT [see below],
Published on 23 Mar 2019
James North is a writer & author, The Nation contributor and at Modoweiss.com

”The New York Times often sets the agenda for American news media. Yet America's 'newspaper of record' is consistently biased when covering Israel Palestine.

How does the NYT use framing, omission and placement to ignore Palestinian and dissident American voices? Why are so many Israelis and their U.S. backers cited, and so few Palestinians? How open to feedback is the newspaper? Why does The New York Times do this? Are there any cracks in the edifice of such reporting?”

Another example of whitewashing - here by the PBS [1]
