Format: Paperback
David Bar-Illan tells it like it is!
We all owe it to ourselves to look behind the headlines for the truth. At times we have to analyse the motives and agendas of various media entities. These issues are addressed here.
Media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis is rarely portrayed in a fair, unbiassed manner. This is the author's prime concern, whilst still stressing the right of freedom of speech and the right of varying opinions.
Any personal opinions of the author can easily be checked for their authenticity if necessary.
We ignore such observations as those outlined in this work at our peril. If we are indeed intent on deciphering the truth from amongst the oft-portrayed propaganda and bias in the media surrounding Middle East events, we earnestly need to keep 'an eye on the media'.
May I recommend another, more recent book, written by a Christian Pentecostal Minister along the same lines, entitled
'The Last War; The Failure Of The Peace Process & The Coming Battle For Jerusalem', by David Allen Lewis....

Format: Paperback
The late David Bar- Ilan for a number of years wrote a weekly column in the ' Jerusalem Post' exposing distorted media coverage against Israel. Among the culprits were the Guardian Reuters and AP,the LA Times the NY Times, and most of the major newspapers and media services. Bar- Ilan detected that a major anti- Israel bias had developed since the Six- Day War. He wrote fairly, always got his facts right , and time and again pointed out errors .At the time each of these struggles seemed a ' life and death' one and Bar- Ilan's writings were a source of comfort and strength to a large number of supporters of Israel. This work is excellent not only for those interested in the Middle East conflict but for anyone who wants to see how the Media may distort the news, and rewrite it in accord with its own bias and Agenda.
