    Abstract

    This project investigates perceived bias and balanced reporting of a global event by looking at coverage from the BBC, The Daily Telegraph, The Jerusalem Post and Al Jazeera, British, Israeli and Arab news media respectively. Television reports have been analysed from The BBC and Al Jazeera from two key dates from the Israel-Palestine conflict of January 2009. Newspaper reports have also been analysed from The Daily Telegraph and The Jerusalem post on three key dates. The project looks at the use of images, language and manner of content throughout the reports to discuss whether there is an imbalance and considered bias. The project looks at the similarities and differences between the media. Ultimately the study found that newspapers had an imbalance and element of bias in reporting, whilst television, both UK and Arabic, strove to maintain neutrality.
