-- with a view it email about the way we are covering the Israeli war against Hamas in Gaza this from Michael from Boston here's what he wrote.
You'll -- keeps reporting that the Palestinians all exploiting civilian casualties and exaggerating them.
Why then does Israel not allow foreign journalists and TV personnel into Gaza to report what's really going on.
-- they afraid to show us the truth.
Well now we have a development in back part of the story the Israeli Supreme Court issued a ruling get this week allowing foreign journalists into Gaza.
The Israeli government says it has repeatedly bombed foreign journalists into some war zones because it cannot guarantee that -- -- And that warning can guarantee you say they -- warning stays in effect.
But the email really begs another question is the mainstream news media presented a balanced picture of events in Gaza.
That's basket media expert on Fox News contributor Liz -- broad open ended question is the media being fat via.
-- -- as usual it's the dice are loaded against Israel in the media.
What the Arabs are waging a propaganda war that's hard -- -- they have learned through watching us of the coverage of Vietnam through the coverage of the war in Iraq.
That if you can get pictures of and stories about.
Civilian casualties you're way ahead of the game you cover the 1973.
War that Saddam people would -- -- it was -- you would then that's right what's the difference in media coverage then and now.
Well then of course in the Israelis had total censorship that is to say whenever you shot a story of her every foot feet foot.
Every bit of footage.
Was censored but the the Arabs were not in the game then they simply said nobody can go to the front but the Israelis have allowed us all to go to the front of course -- -- the front every day.
But over the years they have learned a lot since then the Arabs the Arabs now -- -- and will present to remember the famous milk baby milk factory.
In Iraq some years ago and so they'll they'll show you something that the that is totally alive.
As long as it gets sympathy for -- I want to show you where it becomes Fuzzy I got a picture and -- put it on the screen it shows a wounded Palestinians.
But next to him off three children.
Now this picture just ran role in the American Media in the Washington Post -- -- it was subsequent withdrawal.
But the implication -- the picture was that those children that you can see now what injured.
Wounded in some way in the same attack that wounded the guy on the left.
That was not the case they would not wounded they were silly implications they were asleep the indication.
Was that they with children were being injured do you think that was an Al-Jazeera picture perhaps I don't know the source of the picture but it was cold eventually it.
From the Washington.
They feel they feel no compunction at all about saying that civilian I mean let's face it.
The American Media has no stomach for civilian casualties.
I mean forget World War II that's one you know hell for leather we were on to victory victories a bad word now.
Civilian casualties if they get to -- -- the worse no good and that is really what the philosophy is an Arab supply on that.
Well okay what about the Europeans.
I've watched a fair amount to European media I could hear the baby sit and watch the BBC and I can read the newspapers online.
It seems to me that that taking a much more aggressive.
Anti Israel position than the mainstream American Media.
What have you sampled to Europe and that's nothing new I remembrance in -- back and that in 73 during the on report and they couldn't they wouldn't even allow.
Supply planes from America to land anywhere near for refueling.
I mean they have to go to the -- -- somewhere that's always been anti is raising anti Semitic feeling to do it do you think that may be the European response is because fell somewhat worried about that alone Muslim populations -- -- Well it's a little bit late for that is -- the for the long before they had these Muslim populations they were anti Israel.
Along with the UN.
Who by the way had a building scrape by a bomb and -- girl up in arms and along with you and of course amnesty international and all the other left wing activist group.
It's a by the way I do just have a report -- in two Israelis.
Were shocked in Denmark today.
And there's some suspicion that that was because of the -- law in European media of what's going on -- can confirm that but to Israel has often done.
And and one more so this time they say -- -- -- if the rocket attacks which have been going on benefit from -- of course stand the Hamas attacks on Israel rocket attacks.
From that Warren of tunnels that they have.
What that makes a fourteen in the New York Times and other newspapers.
But if it's the other way around if Israelis killing anybody it's page one and that has been the pattern for some time.
Got it and was glad you're covering it for us this trauma thank you very much if you have -- very -- -- heroes and you thank you very much.
Breaking news for you this from the US treasury the treasury is now saying that that is no way it can guarantee that the financial firms that get.
Top funds will follow the guidelines on capping executive -- I can guarantee that we'll have more on this as it develops and we will be right back the Dow's up 86.
