I found this while looking for more information into how the Media is covering this conflict and it in essence made me sick to the core.

I don't think many media sources follow this, as the MSM over here seems more supportive of the Palestinians than the Israelis right now.

I know its tongue in cheek mate, what made me sick was the fact it was meant to open your eyes up to how the media works with pointers and talking points and its what you actually see on TV in reality.

Why can't western media be made to uphold some kind of ethics and neutrality in cases of war instead of rolling out the propaganda machine so the atrocities can be perpetuated under the lawfulness of the state ?.

Is a reason why, just look at the massacre that is happening in the Gaza strip and that tells you why the media can not lie anymore.

Well, here in the U.S. a majority of the MSM ditched the policy of neutrality and unbiased quite a long time ago. Funny how not many people complained about it during the Presidential elections, but now they are. Guess it matters on whether the biasing is tilted towards your stance or not as to whether you complain about it. I've determined people don't really want a neutral press, they really want to read what they like, because they also tend to complain about biasing when a news story actually isn't biased but doesn't reflect their stance on what the story should read.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Exactly, most people want an angle with a story presented in the news or they get bored too quickly. How pathetic has western society become when the average person on the street wants/needs to hear gossipy biased news presented in a format that idiots could understand ?

It is not the first time I have met a bigotted zionist.

By the way, please show us where exactly mazzroth made a racist comment?

Failing to respond will indicate that your insult was nothing more than another case of zionist blunderbuss slander tactics.

He used the racist line on another thread also.

Nice line by the way. Maybe that can be added to the dictionary also.

Anti-semetic: a zionist blunderbuss slander tactic.
