Scott interviews Ramzy Baroud about two articles he wrote recently for Antiwar.com. The first examines the media’s role in distorting the truth about Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory. Scott and Baroud get specific, looking at how the subjugation is often falsely framed as a conflict where both sides are on equal footing. Next, they look at how the current situation in Gaza came about, which Baroud describes as a literal siege right out of the middle ages.
