Analysis of Media Coverage of Israel/Palestine

This section is about news coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

We have done seven reports: the newest one is of the Associated Press, the major source of world news for Americans, one of TV network news coverage, one of The New York Times one of the San Francisco Chronicle, two of the San Jose Mercury News, and one of the New London Day. All six can be viewed online. One of our studies was specifically corroborated by a Stanford media critic in “The Newsworthiness of Death.”

We also recommend that you visit the website of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting to view their numerous studies on coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Particularly noteworthy is their report, “The Illusion of Balance,” on NPR coverage. Another valuable resource is Times Warp, which analyzes New York Times coverage of this issue.
