Great documentary on the lack of balance in reporting on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict in mainstream US TV News.

I'm always shocked when I see US news on the middle east. I'm Irish and I watch Irish, UK and US news as well as following (far too many) newspapers online from Ireland, UK and US. The US coverage is appallingly one-sided.
I think the documentary above should be seen by as many in the US as possible.

"appalingly one-sided" is of course a generalisation. There are notable exceptions but it is clear where the US media's sympathies lie, particulary the Washington Post of late, also CNN. Fox is of course a big offender (not that that should surprise anyone).

Actually, Sky News (UK based) (although owned by Rupert Murdoch) is not that bad. It's a 24 hr. international news station. Having said that I of course prefer Channel 4 News (UK based).
