Intifada Hits the Headlines is a nuanced and detailed study of newspaper reporting during the escalation of the second intifada in the fall of 2000, showing how real events are subject to distortion and manipulation by the media. Analyzing Yediot Ahronot, Ma'ariv and Haaretz, Daniel Dor finds a wide gap between the reality reported by field reporters and the eventual newspaper accounts framed by editors. Dor argues that no one person or entity is responsible, but that it is the influence of fear, anger, ignorance, and a desire to please and to sell newspapers that threatens the freedom of the press.
