    Excellent book on how the media covers the Palestinian Israel conflict the biasness and the non objective element I'm tempted here to republish a review essay I made of the book when it was first published in 2004 Academics media practitioners commentators and even the ordinary man in the street must read this book over and over to understand how television news in Britain manipulates coverage for the benefit of one side—the Israeli Philo and Berry of the Glasgow University Media Group carefully painstakingly looking at news bulletins by the BBC and ITV through a two year period to see how the networks have covered the Palestinian Israeli conflict and the Intifada They examine the news content provided by these organizations and argue that television news is not innocently aired to audiences watching the news dominated by violent images and concentration on projecting riots mobs stonethrowing stabbings shootings kidnapping protests and military attacks p101Indeed one BBC journalists said his his own editor had said to him that they did not want 'explainers'—as he put it 'it's all bang bang stuff' p102Paul Adams a veteran BBC journalist who long covered this area says It's a constant procession of grief—its covered as if it’s a very large blood feud and unless there isn't a large amount of blood it's not covered p113But behind the keenness to show action it can be argued there is a very real campaign to favor Israel in the reporting Philo and Berry says The Israelis had twice as much time to speak p 136 In the first sample of bulletins between 28 September till 16 October the Israelis had 1055 lines of text against 525 for the Palestinians p 296 And this trend continued throughout the two other samples conducted by the authors within the two year period p 157 Similarly in the March 2002 sample 12525 lines of text were given to covering Israeli deaths as opposed to 46 lines of Palestinian deaths p 181 But this maybe due to the fact the Israelis have a stronger public relations machine who are in the business of providing press releases interviews and even ready made news giving their versions of events to willing journalists This point is further facilitated by the fact that Israel as the dominant state controls and uite freuently deny access to the Palestinians to get to Jerusalem were 99 percent of the media is located in p 136This means that press releases coming from the Israeli authorities are simply endorsed and reported by the journalist p147 This maybe because of a number of factors one of which the in ability of Palestinian officials to get to studios in Jerusalem in time This biasness to one side may in the end be related to the structure of occupation Nevertheless the book criticizes TV journalists as accepting one version of events without checking its truth Statements presented by Israeli sources using emotive specific words become the normal way of reporting the news Bias and taking the Israeli side is made in other ways too The use of language is a powerful tool used by the media to sharpen the reports and give the viewers hidden messages and telling viewers subliminally which side is wrong The phrase the Palestinians are showing no sign of remorse p 155 is designed to convey to the viewers that they don't care at what they've done But as the writers show there is nothing in the bulletins to suggest why Palestinians are doing this or explain the reasons for their behavior Emotive words such as a cold blooded killing p147 savage cold blooded killing atrocity murder lynch mob barbarically killed p 153 and brutal killing p 154 brutal slaying and slaughter p 155 are all words indiscriminately used to describe Palestinian action against Israeli deaths In contrast reporting on the Palestinians is used differently The authors say despite the large number of Palestinians who have died words such as 'cold bloodied killing' had not been used to describe their deaths p 148 in the period under study Further it is Israelis deaths which are given detailed accounts which is in contrast to the non specific language of tanks and warplanes hitting Palestinian targets p 214The book criticizes the British television media for identifying with the Israeli side It says Our analysis suggests that the news framework and the presentational structure which was most freuently used in reporting events tended to favor the Israeli perspectivethe Israelis were said to be 'retaliating' or in some way responding to what had been done to them about six times as often as the Palestinian p 160By contrast it is argued the Palestinian attacks are rarely referred toas a response or retaliation to Israeli action p 162Philo and Berry add journalists adopt the Israeli view p 163 uncritically by using emotive words themselves as Israel's furious response Israel's retribution hammer Palestinians and Israel gave the Palestinian Authority a humiliating reminder of its military power today in response to the weekend's suicide bombing p 164Journalists at times use the word terroristdirectly in their own speech without attributing it as part of a reported statement by the Israelis p 172 The word gunmen is also used on one occasion by a reporter although he is presenting the Palestinian point of view In western culture Philo and Berry say the use of this word gives viewers a very negative connotations because it is associated with bank robbers and other criminal activity and used interchangeably with the word terrorist p 171The authors say gunmen and terrorists were typically applied to Palestinian actors rather than Israelis and this tends to be a long term trend that has long been adopted on the reporting of the conflict p 171A whole battery of vocabulary is used when describing Palestinians on television which has the effect of stripping them of their humanity their history and identity and to the fact that they have been driven out of their land and occupied Words include describing them as activists followers of Hams guerrillas militants extremists assailants gunmen bombers terrorists killers assassins fundamentalist groups attackers self styled Palestinian martyrs and fanatics p 173There is no attempt by the television reporters to provide analysis or explanations for Palestinian actions as rooted in the history of the conflict In the bulletins transcribed between 28 September and 16 October 2000 just 17 lines out of a total of 3500 lines of text referred to the history of the conflictInstead Palestinians are presented as irrational or at least there is no historical context to explain to the viewers why are they doing this something that created a great deal of confusion among people who are watching with journalists often speaking obliuely almost in the form of shorthand p 110 The effect of all this was to create the impression there is no clear rationale for Palestinian action other than they are driven by hatred p 120 They are merely portrayed as starting and the Israelis are responding The lack of historical context moves the rationale for Palestinian action p 157But the rationale behind Israeli action is clearly expressed Although Philo and Berry acknowledge that Israelis do not escape without criticism on television they suggest it is the Israeli rationales that are routinely present in the coverage both in the reported statements and the interviews with their spokespeople p 178 There is very little keenness to provide explanations The book criticizes television news for its inability to talk about the nature of the occupation and Israeli military control p 175 as being motives for Palestinian action This is something which is widely discussed in Israel newspapers with Michael Ben Yair former Israeli attorney general writing in Haaretz as the Intifada as being a war of national liberation for the Palestinians saying we enthusiastically chose to become a colonialist society ignoring international treaties expropriating land transferring settlers from Israel to the occupied territories engaging in theft and finding justifications for all these activitieswe established an apartheid regime p 157But the story of the settlers is taken up by television news with reporters saying settlements as venerable and under threat and spending a disproportionate time following the lives and concerns of the settlers p 121 One reporter was even in the car of one couple with their baby and an M16 rifleBut such images are designed to convey a picture to the viewers that Israelis are trying to lead normal lives against all odds However Philo and Berry argue settlements are not put in the proper context set up and developed by the Israeli government on Palestinian lands to strength the occupation and political control backed by the Israeli army p 124Although written in a succinct language the book has to be read time and again so the reader can fathom think about and discuss what is being said At the end of the book the authors talk extensively to people from different social strata to see whether watching the news helped them to understand about the Palestinian Israeli conflictViews spoken to suggest television was not doing its job in informing people One said the news was dominated by images of atrocity and horror Many didn't know that the Palestinians were forcibly removed from their land and are now under occupation Another said the impression he got was that the Palestinians had lived around the area and now were trying to get backI didn't realize they had been driven out I just thought they didn't want to live as part of IsraelHe seemed to reflect a general attitude among the people interviewed and this is maybe why the first 90 pages or so was attributed to providing a historical background to the conflict from the invention of political Zionism and Jewish immigration to Israel in the late 19th and early 20th century right up to the current government of Ariel Sharon in IsraelThe bibliography at the end of the book is uite extensive but there might be one bone of contention with the authors and that is most of the references are by English or Jewish sources in comparison Arab sources either in English or Arabic were somewhat underplayed The authors should have looked at primary material from the Arab world especially from such organizations as the Institute of Palestine studies to get a indigenous view This is especially important because of the number of Israeli references including the Israeli neo historians that are used

    Really really well done It cleared up a lot of things for me and has a fair point about the news why are our primary sources of information making us confused rather than less so?
