ATTENTION! A new site has just been launched called The Second Draft. It examines how news reports are subject to manipulation and distortion by interested elements. It is run by first rate academics and media experts and provides the full resources necessary for in informed opinion.
The first investigation (along with extensive supporting material) is called Pallywood and shows, based on original footage, Palestinian cameramen working for world news agencies create news where there is none, for purposes of propaganda.
This film (and the rest of the website) is an absolute must see for anyone who holds the truth dear. It also proves that Baudrillard was right. Globalization and the ‘Information Highway’ can be one way tickets to manipulation and distortion.
