When it comes to media coverage of the Middle East in the Western press, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict garners more print than any other story. Palestinians, Israelis, and sympathizers on both sides of the conflict often accuse the media of one-sided reporting. In this episode, Mike and Danny respond to the question, how does one spot media bias in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? In doing so they discuss the causes of biased reporting, recommendations for more balanced study of the issue, and whether or not biased reporting is as bad as it is often portrayed.
