Arab Radio: A study of American news media bias, Part II

The Arab Street Radio will continue a discussion about a new report issued by 416 Labs which has analyzed 50 years of news media coverage of the Palestine, Israel conflict and the Arab World. The study confirms what many people already new, that the American mainstream news media is biased and intentionally skewers information to demonize the Arabs and Palestinians while portraying Israel as the victim. The media also minimizes Israel’s actions to whitewash criticism.

The report is titled: “50 Years of Occupation: A Sentiment and N-Gram Analysis of U.S. Mainstream Media Coverage of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine”

The guests are Authors Usaid Siddiqui and Owais A. Zaheer who put together the detailed report.
