"Disproportionate focus" on Israel?

Author and former AP correspondent Matti Friedman gives Brian Stelter his take on media coverage of the "Israeli-Palestinian" conflict, which he says should be called "Israeli-Arab" or "Jewish-Arab."

Friedman wrote this essay for the Jewish online magazine Tablet: "An Insider’s Guide to the Most Important Story on Earth"

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job.

    Stunning that the sub-par host shrugs off the statistics relating to media presence, never delving into the reasons the for such media concentration.

    Not a word was mentioned about the personal and media freedom which exists in Israel compared to its almost universal absence in the Arab world. He does not question how this would slant coverage. He does not question whether systemic antisemitism plays any part in the media concentration.

    Perhaps the sub-par host will grow into the role. It is a shame he is currently wasting the time of CNN and its viewers.

    Why hasn't this spread like a firestorm on the internet? Of everything I heard on the day this aired, this was the only topic that stood out to me. Mr. Friedman's statistics alone prove the US media gives disproportionate coverage to Israel due to an apparent emotional connection rather than a practical reason.
