Reports show American media is choosing to show less violent photos of the Gaza bombings by Isreal which prevents the reality of the attacks from being seen. Jessica Burbank and Ana Kasparian break it down on The Damage Report.

AMERICANS RARELY SEE THE TRUE FACE OF ISRAEL’S BOMBING OF GAZA – https://theintercept.com/2022/08/10/israel-gaza-bombing-death-images/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=theintercept
"WHEN A CEASEFIRE on Sunday night ended a three-day Israeli offensive in the Gaza strip, over 350 Palestinians were wounded and 46 were dead, including 16 children, according to Palestinian officials. Media coverage in the U.S. was mainly led by photographs of smoke-filled skies or Gazans walking amid piles of rubble. While the photos were accurate and recent, the safety of selecting these images, rather than graphic ones, effectively portrayed a reality for American audiences far removed from what had truly unfolded on the ground.
To look at the totality of images that are made during a news event is an experience most Americans, with the exception of photo editors in newsrooms, rarely experience. As the Palestinian death toll climbed over the weekend, images from photojournalists based in Gaza poured into massive databases like Getty Images and AP Images. A quick search for “Gaza” on Getty Images, for example, returns hundreds of recent photographs, a near-endless grid of brutality from the last week.
In many images, children killed by Israeli bombs are displayed prominently. These images show funerals, the faces of the deceased uncovered, their bodies held aloft and marched through the streets. In some photographs, mourners are seen taking their own images of the bodies on their cellphones — proof of what horrors have occurred."
