Are US news agencies biased against Palestine?

Published on  |  Modified on

Alison Weir at her recent talk in Petaling Jaya organised by Just (International Movement for a Just World) with the theme 'Deadly Distortion: American News Coverage of Israel-Palestine and its Effect on the Alleged Clash of Civilisations' gives the impression that American news agencies are biased against Palestine and in favour of Israel in their coverage of the conflict.

Without expressing support for either side in the conflict, I would like to say that this issue is not as clear cut as it is made out to seem. My purpose in writing this letter is simply this: To point out that the American media is not always unflinchingly on the side of Israel.
