Time after time, US news coverage of the issue begins when Palestinians have committed violence, without noting that this violence was preceded by lethal Israeli violence… including against thousands of nonviolent protesters gathering week after week inside the Gaza ghetto…

Media experts say some news agencies are ‘legitimizing Israeli war crimes’ in Gaza – through biased coverage, spreading rumors, and failure to contextualize truthfully.

The media generally has a strong pro-Israel bias, and rarely talks to or about Palestinians. Consumers of content need to be vigilant: notice what is said and what isn’t said.
The Times all but ignored Palestinian civilians killed by Israel’s latest assault on Gaza and dismissed an essential factor in Israel’s calculus — pressure on Netanyahu from the fascistic members of his own coalition… PBS was almost as deferential. Bennett left the large number of Palestinian dead to the last line of his report, and didn’t say that almost all have been civilians… The Times and PBS too are sensitive to the Israel lobby in the U.S.
Social media platforms Twitter, Facebook & Instagram have repressed Palestinian voices for years, often at the direction of the Israeli government…
American mainstream media have averted their gaze (again) from Palestinian suffering. Eleven Palestinian deaths in seven days is apparently not news.
