A pathbreaking study of both electronic and print coverage by the elite U.S. media during the second Palestinian uprising against Israel. The author assesses the charge of media bias and discusses whether the Fourth Estate has lived up to its claim to provide an informed, accurate, and dispassionate "first draft" of history.

Joshua Muravchik is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and an adjunct scholar of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He is the author of six books and he has written widely on U.S. media coverage in the Middle East, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Muravchik holds a bachelor's degree from the City College of New York and a doctorate in international relations from Georgetown University.
