Does the news coverage reflect the reality on the ground?
Below are two documentaries about the American media spinning the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Interesting to see how things are portrayed in mainstream American media compared to the BBC.
How are these same basic principles are in-play for other topics and themes throughout the American news media?

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.
