The best documentary

“Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land: US Media and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” is a wonderful example of how truthful filmmaking can be. It’s the finest documentary you’ll probably never see on free-to-air television. Dissecting the true agendas behind the Middle East media coverage and the reasons that Palestinians are rarely given a humanity, let alone a death toll, the film features Jews and Arabs, journalists and academics, all explaining the murky relationship between corporate media, US foreign policy and slick Israeli PR.

It’s makes one thankful for indy media. Any chance of an Australian film funding body supporting a similar project here? No, didn’t think so.
