Pallywood III - Icon of HatredTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Here's yet another reminder that the media feeds us what they themselves are "fed," and they are either too naive or far too biased, to care.
The term "Pallywood" refers to the staging of scenes by Palestinian journalists in order to present the Palestinians as hapless victims of Israeli aggression. They are able to succeed in this endeavor in large part due to the credulity and eagerness of the Western press to present these images, which reinforce the image of the Palestinian David struggling valiantly against the overpowering Israeli Goliath. Pallywood has led to astonishing lapses in Western journalistic standards in which badly staged scenes regularly appear on the news as "real events."
For those interested in an in-depth look into how propaganda is really produced and created, this is a must see.
