The BBC Today Programme invited Greg Philo, Professor of Communications and co-author of 'More Bad News from Israel' to discuss the lack of historical context and of the viewpoints of the Palestinians on BBC News coverage of Israel and Palestine. Referring to results from focus groups, Philo notes that 'people do not even understand that it is a military occupation that the Palestinians are subject to'.

Journalist Jonathan Freedland is also in the discussion, arguing that both sides of the conflict criticise the BBC. He states that 'even though the death toll is very lopsided', 'there is a mutual exchange of fire.'
