Media Microscope: Bringing up Bibi Categories: Australasia, Israel, Media/ Academia     Author: Allon Lee

Overwhelmingly, media coverage of Binyamin Netanyahu's re-election framed the comments he made in the lead up to election day as a convenient hook to explain why a two-state resolution is in limbo. This was largely achieved by misreporting or excluding critical sections of Netanyahu's actual remark

Letter: Israel Furphies Categories: Israel, Media/ Academia, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Jamie Hyams

Tony Walker ("Israel poll threatens Labor peace" 14-15 March) perpetuates a myth about the Israeli/Palestinian dispute - that the Netanyahu government is "committed to an expansion of Jewish settlements."

Essay: Media Malfunctions

Essay: Media Malfunctions Categories: Israel, Media/ Academia     Author: Matti Friedman

The question we must ask, as observers of the world, is why this conflict has come over time to draw more attention than any other, and why it is presented as it is. How have the doings in a country that constitutes 0.01% of the world's surface become the focus of angst, loathing, and condemnation m

Media Microscope: Carr-nivale Categories: Australasia, Israel, Media/ Academia     Author: Allon Lee

On November 8, the Australian ran an op-ed from former Foreign Minister Bob Carr announcing his new role as patron of the Labor Friends of Palestine, wherein he argued, ad nauseum, that Israel is becoming apartheid-like and that settlements are what is preventing a two-state solution.
