Palestinians bid Jon Stewart a fond farewell | Al Jazeera

Apart from the constant aerial bombardments and denials of our rights by Israel, we Palestinians have been victims of another major global force: the American news media.

Misrepresentations of our history, our struggle, and our narrative have been the norm.

From the media’s refusal to use the term “occupation” to its insistence on creating a faux-parity between oppressor and oppressed, Palestinians have become accustomed to seeing their images grossly twisted on every American news channel.

In fact, if one were to only watch CNN to glean the latest developments, one might think that there is a country named Israel that is fighting a country named Palestine.
