02-08-19 The Arab street Radio: Media Bias Report Part 2
Welcome to THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcasting this week from the Watergate in Washington DC through 690 AM WNZK Radio in Detroit Michigan … Friday Feb. 8, 2019
Our guests this morning are authors Usaid Siddiqui and Owais Zaheer who put together a detailed report on the historic bias of the mainstream American news media against Arabs and Palestinians … We 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.” You can visit their website to review the report by clicking here.
