Creating people's geographies
Much is being made of this 13 minute prime-time segment that has just aired on the US 60 Minutes program, wherein the reality of Palestinian exclusion, Israeli apartheid and illegal settler intent has finally made it to mainstream US television.
With some reservations about Simon’s past reporting on Israel as stated here, this segment is welcomed with cautious optimism: on its own, it is still but a drop in a sea of US corporate media slanted toward the likudist narrative, but it may yet be portentous with ripple effects.
CBS Sixty Minutes Bob Simon examines how a growing number of Israelis and Palestinians feel that the time for a two-state solution has passed (Transcript; one-page viewer and printer-friendly). Video at YouTube. The short advertisement is from CBS and precedes the clip.
