|Like most Americans, Alison Weir, the editor of a small-town
newspaper in California, knew very little about the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict, other than what she had gleaned from the evening news or
As a journalist, her attention was on issues much closer to home. Neither a Muslim nor a Jewish, she nevertheless became more curious about the topic of the Palestinian uprising.
And as she researched it, she became increasingly suspicious that the American media were not telling us the whole story.
Months later, she traveled to the occupied territories as an independent journalist to find out for herself what the U.S. media seemed to be omitting.
Three months after returning from Palestine, Alison Weir quit her job and founded If Americans Knew, an organization dedicated to quantifying the ways in which the American media was misinforming the public about the conflict. Ms. Weir explains her group's methodology, analyzes the data, and reports on the key findings.
