Day 153 roundtable: How the media aids genocide

On day 153 of Israel’s genocide in Gaza, we speak with Dr. Arham Ali, a pediatric critical care specialist at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in Southern California. He recently spent time in Gaza working at the Emirati maternity hospital in Rafah.

Dr. Ali tells us about the catastrophic situation inside Gaza’s neonatal intensive care units and how Israel’s engineered starvation policy will affect children their whole lives.

We were also joined by Bryce Greene to talk about how corporate media aids Israel’s genocide.

Greene is an organizer, writer and contributor to the media watchdog Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR), where he recently published his report “Shielding US Public From Israeli Reports of Friendly Fire on October 7.” He has contributed to numerous independent media outlets, including The Electronic Intifada.

With Asa Winstanley and Ali Abunimah, Greene discussed updates on Israel’s “mass rapes” atrocity propaganda.

Jon Elmer gave us a full update on the latest military developments as seen in videos from the resistance, and we talked about the latest efforts to negotiate an end to Israel’s genocide.

And I gave a brief news update from Palestine, highlighting a story by Maureen Clare Murphy on Israel’s attacks on Palestinians seeking food aid in northern Gaza, as well as a feature by Ali Abunimah and Tamara Nassar on the theater of airdropping humanitarian aid and a new report by Tamara Nassar on the accelerating violence against Palestinians by Israeli forces and settlers inside the occupied West Bank.

I wonder if John Elmer can direct us to the IOF's TikTok video, showing the inside of one of their vehicles as it's being hit by a Yassin. John said he left it out of his segment, to avoid YT censoring the EI podcast video.
