Pro Israel Media Bias

Back at the beginning of March 2007, a research paper published by Harvard University, examined media coverage of the 2006 Lebanon War.

The conclusion: Hezbollah succeeded at using the media as a weapon against Israel.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the mainstream media, having allowed themselves to be cynically manipulated by the Hezbollah propaganda machine, failed to report the findings of the Harvard study.

ďAn open society, Israel, is victimized by its own openness," Marvin Kalb and Dr. Carol Saivetz of the Shorenstein Center of Harvard University concluded in their research paper, "The Israeli-Hezbollah War of 2006: The Media as a Weapon in Asymmetrical Conflict."

"A closed sect, Hizbullah, can retain almost total control of the daily message of journalism and propaganda," manipulating its image to the world, the February 28 paper found.

In the Second Lebanon War, Hizbullah limited access to Western reporters, "orchestrated" events and manipulated journalists with threats of expulsion if they violated its reporting rules.

And the press largely complied with the restrictions that were "reminiscent of the Soviet era.Ē

In one example cited by the paper, on a tour of a Shi'ite neighborhood of Beirut damaged by IAF air strikes, Hizbullah warned reporters not to "wander off on their own or speak to residents" and to photograph only approved sights.

If the press violated these rules, "cameras would be confiscated, film or tape destroyed, and offending reporters would never be allowed access to Hizbullah officials or Hizbullah-controlled areas."

"At one point, apparently on cue, a Hizbullah minder signaled for ambulances to rev up their engines, set off their sirens and drive noisily down the street. The scene was orchestrated, designed to provide a photo op, and reporters went along for the ride."

Of all of the reporters on the tour only CNN's Anderson Cooper reported on the "attempt to create and control a story." The rest of the press "followed the Hizbullah script."

The mainstream media, always accused of being Pro-Israel failings during the Lebanon War, included doctored photography, the reporting of staged incidents as fact, and biased or inaccurate journalism.

Re: Pro Israel Media Bias

First off, you lied about the title. This was about pro-Hezbolah media coverage from some lunatic at Harvard University. This article does not site examples.

As well, you left the name out of the person who wrote the article, as well as where you got the article. By doing that, it seems possible someone credible wrote it, so I bothered reading it. If it was FOX News or something, I would have just ignored it.

As well, if you did get it from the mainstream media, it is a contradiction in itself.

Remember that the in the Old Testament of the Bible and the Torah, it says "An eye for an eye." Now God didn't mean this in hopes you would exact full punishment. He also teaches mercy, but introduces this law to limit the amount of punishment. If someone takes one of your eyes, you would be wrong to take both of his.

Pro-Hezbolah coverage would have been any attempt to show some context or reasons as to why the two soldiers were kidnapped, which didn't happen. Coverage started to happen when the soldiers were kidnapped, but did not cover any Arab civilians that were captured.

Mind you, I personally have a huge dis-taste for Hezbolah. I'm pro-democratic government in Lebanon and anti-Hezabolah. What I'm illustrating to the people reading (Not you, I'm not expect much from you. I'm just happy you can read.) is what pro-Hezbolah coverage would look like, and how it is unusually absent. Token gestures don't make up for this unusual fact that everyone doesn't study motives, or study how many civilians (people who are not proven to be terrorists) Israel has kidnapped (the propaganda word they use is "detained", I think).

#0 You say, "This article does not site examples." You did mean 'cite', right?

#1 Read the post again for specific examples of bias:
In one example cited by the paper, on a tour of a Shi'ite neighborhood of Beirut damaged by IAF air strikes, Hizbullah warned reporters not to "wander off on their own or speak to residents" and to photograph only approved sights.:

A Second Example: If the press violated these rules, "cameras would be confiscated, film or tape destroyed, and offending reporters would never be allowed access to Hizbullah officials or Hizbullah-controlled areas."

A Third Example: At one point, apparently on cue, a Hizbullah minder signaled for ambulances to rev up their engines, set off their sirens and drive noisily down the street. The scene was orchestrated, designed to provide a photo op, and reporters went along for the ride."


#2 You say, "The title is a lie."
Check your dictionary. A bias may be favorable or unfavorable: bias in favor of or against an idea.

#3 You say,"Remember that the in the Old Testament of the Bible and the Torah, it says "An eye for an eye." Now God didn't mean this in hopes you would exact full punishment. He also teaches mercy, but introduces this law to limit the amount of punishment. If someone takes one of your eyes, you would be wrong to take both of his."

Are you a Torah Scholar? God did not even mean one eye for one eye. He meant the 'value of one eye for an eye.'

Yeah, I know about that ambulance lunatic who shows up at places that Israel bombs and parades a corpse around, fooling even the civilians and victims there.

None of those examples show how the Zionist mainstream media is pro-Hezbolah. Those examples just show that Hezbolah are pro-Hezbolah, and I already told you I hate those mother f-ckers.

The thread title is "Pro Israel Media Bias". Key word is PRO. So no, this bias says it can only be in favor of, but you only look at unfavorable.

And it's not actually lying as much as it is sarcasm, but you just tried to BS your way out of it with favorable/unfavorable explanation.

What is the casualty count ratio between Palestinians and Israelis? 8 to 1? An eye for an eye wound up being an eye for eight of them. "The value"? What are you saying? That it takes 8 Palestinian lives to equal the life of an Israeli? The Bible doesn't say: "the value of".

If there are four in your family and twenty in another, and a member of the other kills one of yours. Do you then proceed to kill five of theirs?
