Look Past Our Slanted Media

You're not getting a real picture of what's going on between Israel and Lebanon if you're watching American TV. Seeing the Forest points out We Are Seeing Different News About Lebanon. We are getting a one-sided view of the story. The massive Lebanese civilian casualties (more than ten times greater than the Israeli casualties) are being reported and shown around the world. But not here, because that's not our media's story. It's not our government's position, and the corporate media is not about to contradict the Bush Administration.

YouTube has lots of short videos from Lebanon.

Also, go watch Mosaic - excerpts from Middle Eastern news shows.
