Weir Claims Slant In Coverage Of Israel/Palestine

Sep 26, 2013

Alison Weir writes and speaks widely on Israel and Palestine, which she says is not accurately reported by American media. According to Weir, the media creates a dangerous situation in adding "the pervasive slant and filtering that prevent the public from receiving the full facts on Israel-Palestine." She refers to the press as "arguably the most powerful institution in the U.S.," citing that media provides the majority of information Americans use to influence opinions and voting decisions. She's the executive director of "If Americans Knew," an independent research and information institute that examines Israeli-Palestinian conflict, U.S. foreign policy regarding the Middle East and media coverage of the issue.
