What’s Politics #10 - US Media’s Deceitful Coverage of ICJ Gaza Case

Recently, the world watched South Africa take Israel to the International Court of Justice for the genocidal acts Israel committed in Gaza. After hearing presentations from both sides, the court sided with South Africa. While there is still a long way to go before the case fully concludes at the ICJ, the court has issued a preliminary order barring Israel from further acts of violence against Palestinians. The fact that Israel isn’t complying is hardly surprising. 

What’s interesting is Western mainstream media’s coverage of the whole ordeal – which is to pretty much twist the court’s ruling to suit their narrative and protect their interests.

We discuss this and more in this episode.
