US Corporate Media Complicit in Demonizing Pro-Palestinian Protesters

“A great, novel experiment in political physics is under way in the United States, as the unstoppable moral force of youth-led protests against Israel’s genocidal war in Gaza runs into the immovable object of the American power elite’s support for it. In this clash, two critical forces have been weaponized: the U.S. mainstream media that heavily disseminates Israeli propaganda and shapes many local, state and national policies, and the scourge of antisemitism that has been unfairly used to demonize and silence Palestinians and shift attention away from the U.S.-enabled Israeli genocide in Gaza. Since Israel launched its assault on Gaza, President Joe Biden’s steadfast support for it has galvanized young Americans and pushed them to mobilize.” (05/06/24)
