This is a joint project of the Council for the National Interest and If Americans Knew, a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank directed by Americans without ethnic ties to the region that specializes in media analysis and has conducted a number of statistical studies of U.S. media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

A study of AP found that AP reported on Israeli children’s deaths at a rate seven times greater than it reported on Palestinian children’s deaths, even though Palestinian children were killed first and in far greater numbers.

Such Israeli-centric reporting patterns may be related to the fact that a great many  journalists covering the conflict, perhaps a large majority, have family ties to the Israeli military; some have themselves served in Israeli forces.
