Kudos to the Post for not only covering the news regarding Israel and Palestine, but for also providing revealing information about the media war being waged by both sides.  Paul Farhi’s Nov. 23 Style story, “Gaza photos draw bias accusations,” offered good quotes and summaries, especially this: “Complaints about bias flare with each spike in the struggle, but Hussein Ibish, a senior fellow at the Washington-based American Task Force on Palestine, isn’t convinced that either side dominates the media spin (‘the dishonesty is pretty damn even, really,’ he said), although he believes Israelis have the advantage of ‘cultural affinities’ with Western journalists — that is, ‘they speak American’ better than Palestinians.”
