In the last 4 years or so, I have heavily investigated news articles in the mainstream media from many sources and nations.

My conclusion is that I feel absolute disgust towards all the medias in this world.

There is simply too much provincialism and bias.

Let's make a comparison (may sound familiar):

The Middle Eastern vs. Israeli and U.S. media

Phase 1: Suicide bomber attacks some city in Israel

-Israeli media headline "Palestinian suicide bomber kills 5 in LeZion"

Do they know the bomber was Palestinian? Could it be a Israeli plot to justify their war against Palestine?

-Middle Eastern media "Gaza tragedy, revealed"

Off-topic as propaganda? Or have no way to confirm or deny the incident?

-American Media "Palestinian suicide bomber kills 5 in LeZion"

Are they sure?

Phase II: War breaks out

Israeli Media headline "Hamas missiles strikes civilian bus stop, kills 5, Israel PM takes immediate action against Palestine"

Can this be confirmed? Or another way to build up hate against a neighboring nation?

Middle Eastern media headline "Israel opens war against Palestine, Hamas fights back"

No mention of bombing incidents in Israel? Or do they even know those attack were even on the news?

U.S. media "Hamas strikes Israel, killing civilians, Israel retaliates, U.S. will back Israel"

Further away from the scene, can the U.S. media really confirm this?

Phase 3: The War

Israeli Media "War continues, Hamas kills 2 Israelis"

No mention of death in Palestine?

Middle Eastern media "Israeli soldiers brutally kills hundreds of people at protest, nation locked and famine ensues"

Whos is to blame? Is Hamas be responsible for attacks? Do they want the people to focus on their enemies to forget their quality of life?

U.S. media "Hamas hides in civilian schools, Israel bombs armories"

No mention of deaths? Can anyone in the U.S. prove that Hamas is hiding weapons in schools and using children as shields?

Then you will have a ceasefire proposed by one side, then some random unconfirmed incident happens, then war starts over again till one side kills the other.

But you know what? Even with all the obvious bias in the media, people still trust the media because of "reputation" or because of what they are taught by their parents, politicians, and teachers.

How on earth can this be solved if “We see things not as they are but as we are. Our perception is shaped by our previous experiences"- Dennis Kimbro.

Oh my the first reply, lol

To answer your question, yes its biased as is every thing here or usa, or most of world, only way to know is to read sites there, middle eastern sites and watch their chanels, if you can make it out.

As for biased media, princes are heroes of war Price Harry the hero of war? He chose to go to Afghanistan because unlike other kids who thinks video games killing are cool he wanted to o it in real life, like he ever helped any one, like he was treated eually or every was in danger, thus!

Reality, Racist Prince Harry goes to Afghanistan to kill innocent people and help army fight a fake battle funded both sides by the same people! How pathetic! lol

But yeh, like I said, you have to check foreign chanels and media etc. Not local!
