Media coverage of the Middle Est conflict in Gaza has too often been slanted by omissions and bias reporting by media organizations.

Unfortunately, the media bias is in favor of Israel.

That's not true at all Carrie. Some media organizations are in favour of Israel, others are in favour of Palestine. I admit I'm pro-Israel, but I'm not blind to the truth. Thanks Cal.

Signed, of course, you are wrong Carrie, most of the media is anti Israel and shows all the terrible photos of the dead civilians in Gaza without really explaining what really is going on over there. Because we are the strong ones and they are the victims in this case, we get all the bad coverage. This isn't fair because the Israelies do their utmost not to target civilians.

Carrie and Giana, you are both my friends. I don't doubt that there is bias both ways in reporting on this conflict. It is a very hot button indeed, not only on site, but all over the world, and for a lot of reasons. It I also unfortunate that some in power on both sides are choosing to exploit people's feelings for political gain rather than trying to seek any kind of peaceful solution. I have faith that the will of the people is in favor of peace.

Carrie is right that the mainstream media in the US have historically been mindlessly pro Israel. and they are still clinging to that position. If we use the internet we can seek out stories written from the other side, but many do not, and those of us who do are not on the spot to evaluate. Giana, I don't know what news you are getting, but I am confident you are right in evaluating it.

Both sides have suffered and are suffering. It would help if we try not to demonize either side. Consistently accurate reporting would be a huge step in the right direction.

Thank you, Cal! I signed this earlier today as soon as I got my copy.

Bias is a terrible thing in what is SUPPOSED to be reporting facts; omission is beyond belief. I've seen scenes, interviews, photographs, opinions, and news about Gaza day after day after day. I have yet to see ANYTHING about Israel.
CNN is the only network with the balls to say or do anything to discredit Hamas's lies.

I've flagged the bigot, and will continue to do so. Mind you, it doesn't seem that Care2 is paying any attention, but it's worth a try in my opinion.

Arild Warud on your profile you state: "Causes: Freedom of Expression, Endangered Species, Animal Welfare, Be there for the awakening of man, Violence against Women, Human Rights, environment, Civil Rights "
Even though this is about Fair and Honest Media Coverage, you decide to TAKE A STAND.
It is within your right for FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION however it CONFLICTS with BE THERE FOR THE AWAKENING OF MAN!
No one that can state "I will not see the other side of an issue," is yet to awaken themselves.

Pisces Rising, I personally prefer a bigot like Arild - someone who states who his is in a clear and unambiguous way, rather than a disturbing individual who posted a comment here. Now guess who that is. I think you know who.

The unrelenting viciousness of some people leads one to think that their shield of *moral outrage* is hiding something a bit more sinister....

One can criticize Israel without being anti-Jewish. In fact, I have several Jewish friends who do so regularly.
