Exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites exercise a powerful influence over news reporting about the Middle East conflict. Combining American and British TV news clips with observations of analysts, journalists, and political activists, the film provides an historical overview, a striking media comparison, and an examination of factors that have distorted U.S. media coverage and, in turn, American public opinion. 80 min, 2004

Journalist Alison Weir the founder of "If Americans Knew," http://www.ifamericansknew.org an organization dedicated to providing Americans with information on topics of importance that are misreported or under-reported in the American media, will present the film and give a presentation after the film on the three studies of Bay Area newspapers, on the reporting of the Middle East conflict.
