Last year's Control Room revealed how the U.S. government ensured rah-rah coverage of its 2002 assault on Iraq by expertly manipulating the American media. In Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land, that situation is echoed in the coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Pulling the strings this time is the Israeli government's public-relations machine, which has successfully convinced the U.S. media to present Israel as a virtuous nation trying to defend itself from its hateful enemies. Rather, the doc persuasively reveals an aggressor, flouting international law while making life miserable for Palestinian inhabitants.
