Tell U.S. Media to Fix Its Palestine Coverage

We have four simple demands for U.S. mainstream media outlets to help fix their broken coverage of Palestine. (Some outlets, of course, are less biased than others.) Add your name below before we deliver this petition to U.S. mainstream media:

1. Include the voices of Palestinian rights activists and peace activists, both from Palestine and from the United States.

2. Include the stories of Palestinian victims and their friends and loved ones.

3. Use the active voice. If the Israeli military kills someone, say so. Don't say that Palestinians died, or "died in clashes," and leave the cause of death a mystery to be discovered through careful reading of later paragraphs.

4. Provide appropriate context so that those you are informing of the latest violence know that Israel forcibly removed Palestinians from their homes in 1948 and through the 1967 war, that Israel today illegally occupies and blockades Palestinians, that Israel holds many Palestinian political prisoners, that Israel receives billions of dollars in free high-tech weaponry from the United States every year, and that none of these things is true for the other "side" of the "conflict."
