This superb study ... is extensive in scope, and scrupulously fair. It will be a landmark. (Edward S. Herman, co-author (with Noam Chomsky) of Manufacturing Consent)
[The book] covers a lot of ground in a clear and readable manner and is particularly good at airing different views about the Arab-Israeli conflict. (Professor Avi Shlaim, St Antony's College, University of Oxford)
Coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is often dangerously superficial. Bad News from Israel is a strong contribution to scholarship and public debate. (John D.H. Downing, Director, Global Media Research Center, Southern Illinois University)
Just about everything that we know about Israel/Palestine comes to us from our television screens. Bad News from Israel reveals remarkable levels of ignorance about what and why things are as they are. What's more, the analysis offered here strongly suggests that the media are intimately linked to the perpetuation of this unhappy situation. (Professor Frank Webster, City University, London)
A remarkable book. (Professor Lucrecia Escudero Chauvel, Université de Lille III and Paris VIII)
