Arab Radio: News and controversy in Syria, Palestine & Israel
The Arab street Live Radio Friday Feb. 1, 2019 at 8 AM EST discusses a new poll by 416 Labs shows that the mainstream American news media has a clear bias in favor of Israel and against Palestinians, documented in a study of news media coverage over the past 50 years. We’ll also take calls from listeners and discuss the failure of the Palestinians to unite under one unity government.
Join radio host Ray Hanania on The Arab street Radio broadcast in Detroit on WNZK AM 690 radio and live online Friday Feb. 1, 2019 at 8 AM (Detroit, EST) — (7 AM in Chicago, and 3 PM in Occupied Jerusalem)
We’ll be discussing news in Syria, Palestine and Israel, including a new study that shows that the mainstream American News media is biased against Arabs and Palestinians.
While any reasonable person might feel that we do not really need to do a study to conclude that the mainstream US media has an anti-Palestinian, pro-Israel bias that affirms the lies of the latter while minimizing the reality of the former, one international research group has done just that.
Confirming what most of us have always known — and what Israel spends a fortune on trying to conceal — 416 Labs has confirmed that the mainstream news media in America is biased in favour of Israel and against Palestinians. The 416 Labs study covers an exhaustive period of 50 years, from the aftermath of the June 1967 Six Day War and the start of Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
“Our results support previous research and claims that the US mainstream media’s coverage of the issue favours Israel by providing greater access to Israeli officials, focusing on Israeli narratives both in terms of the quantity of coverage as well as the overall sentiment, as conveyed by headlines,” say the 416 Labs team.
The study concludes that the failure to achieve peace is a direct result of both media bias that protects Israel from most if not all blame for almost anything and everything, regardless of how serious, as well as Washington’s unwavering and unconditional support for the Israeli government.
We will also be talking about the failure of Palestinians to form a unity government, and the continued divisions between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas and how that failure is undermining the creation of a Palestinian State.
