San Jose: "Peace, Propaganda, and the Promised Land"
Wednesday, November 01, 2006
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Almaden room in the San Jose State University Student Union
"Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land provides a striking comparison of U.S. and international media coverage of the crisis in the Middle East, zeroing in on how structural distortions in U.S. coverage have reinforced false perceptions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This pivotal documentary exposes how the foreign policy interests of American political elites--oil, and a need to have a secure military base in the region, among others--work in combination with Israeli public relations strategies to exercise a powerful influence over how news from the region is reported."
