This paper examines the current state of American global mass media and its increasingly narrow vision and delivery of foreign news reporting, which is far too influenced by special interests in world politics and global economics. The Israel-Palestine conflict is one example of the ways in which America’s foreign policy special interests results in omissions in the journalistic narrative.
This paper proposes that alternative narratives of foreign cultures in times of conflict can challenge the mass media narrative of Israel-Palestine through the work of comics journalist Joe Sacco—a writer who provides readers more in ways of the lived experience of war and initiates an alternative discourse of both international conflict and journalistic practices.
