On this sad morning there is no justice in the dawn So many years of dying where does hope get born Not over the broken and bloodied bodies of sleeping children Or the fork tongued lies of the criminals and their defenders — Phil Monsour Song for Gaza 2012 No More Lies No More Silence
This was broadcast on the Paradigm Shift on 4ZZZ fm 102.1 on Friday 23 Nov 2012.
PShift tries to get the point of view of the people most hurt by media bias – people who have suffered colonization, occupation, war, and exile.
Some may blame the journalists who write the stories, they say it is just sloppy journalism, but is it?
This is the first program in a series. This part looks at bias towards Israel at the ABC (see interview below with David Albuquerque) and in The Australian newspaper (see interview below with Fay Waddington).

I would like to thank the people who helped put this show together – Fay, David and Phil. Thanks to Steve and Kathryn at Zed who did the Bob Carr skit (no podcast of this is currently available however the script is at Gaza: the Foreign Minister is the problem … as is the PM … and the President and …/).
Thanks to volunteers and staff at 4ZZZ (Community radio fm 102.1 Brisbane) for their continuing support of Paradigm Shift at the end of its 4th year. Thanks to the originators and those who have taken part.
