Political Matrix

I don't think US news media is particularly biased against Israel.  Pacifica Radio and left-wing media is certainly biased against Israel.  And, worldwide, there is tremendous bias against Israel and maybe there's a rising tide of anti-Israel sentiment from the far left that has infected our political discourse.  But, with places like the NY Times and MSNBC, I don't really see much anti-Israel bias.  

But, I think there is a kernel of truth, in that international news and war coverage often lacks context for US viewers.  If someone just sees the Israeli military response and doesn't know what precipitated it, they view it as aggression.  A 24-hour news channel is very poorly equipped to provide that context and educate viewers on what is going on.  I think that's actually the bigger problem rather than bias of any kind.
