It is almost impossible to understand how a supposedly 'free' Press has completely ignored the mass of evidence that shows their entire presentation of the conflict to be a tissue of lies. Every British newspaper (and TV News channel) without exception - left, right and centre - has simply presented the Hamas narrative. This includes reporting - without questioning - the Hamas reported casualty figures and the Hamas reported 'attacks on schools and hospitals by Israelis'. Although the latter have invariably turned out to be either a) completely false, b) the result of Hamas rockets or c) the result of Hamas firing from those locations, the media has uniformly refused to produce retractions or corrections.
Not a single newspaper or TV report has made clear that all their Gaza reporters are under the total control of Hamas, even though other countries' reporters have documented the abuses after they have left. With very minor exceptions, the ONLY reports from Israel have been those where the media sensed an opportunity to further demonize Israel (such as the story of civilians in Sderot cheering when missiles were targeted at Gaza, and where a group of extreme leftist 'anti-war' protesters in Tel Aviv were confronted by an angry crowd). The obsession with the Sderot story is especially telling since, for 15 years, the media has completely ignored the missiles that have rained down on that town almost every day from Gaza.
We are not talking about 'anti-Israel' bias here. That has been going on for years. We are talking about a totally uniform effort by the entire UK media to brainwash the public with hatred for Israel. While some of the newspapers have carried rare commentary pieces supporting Israel, these have been drowned out by the tsunami of anti-Israel commentaries; to the uninformed reader the pro-Israel commentaries must seem ludicrous since they speak of things that have NEVER been reported as part of the news, like: Hamas use of human shields, the Hamas charter to destroy Israel; the extent Israel goes to avoid civilian casualites; the thousands of Hamas rockets fired at Israel, etc.
It is not just the media that has uniformly participated in the brainwashing programme. Every political party, the trade unions, and academic institutions all form a crucial part of the programme. Consider the case of the UK's medical profession and their flagship journal the Lancet. Contravening all rules of academic publishing the Lancet published a vicious piece of anti-Israel propaganda and failed to disclose that the authors of the article had financial links to Palestinian terrorist organisations. Even worse, the Lancet has refused to publish any response from Israeli medics such as this one. By refusing to publish a response the Lancet is able to keep us the big lie and stop its readers from knowing the truth.

At least Pat Condell gets its right (Hypocrisy over Gaza) - but of course he is never allowed to be seen or heard in the main stream media:
