Samenvatting

The aim purpose of this report is to examine the differences and comparisons between the Western and Middle Eastern media on how these two news channels present the Israeli – Palestinian conflict. The Israeli – Palestinian conflict is a long lasting and greatly publicized conflict. CNNI and AJE are two news channels which have been analyzed.
In order to analyze the news, two weeks have been recorded during the whole day to see whether there are differences or comparisons in presenting the news about the conflict between the two news channels. Moreover, the news have been recorded in the morning, afternoon, evening and overnight. Week 31 (2014) and week 18 (2015) have been chosen, because the U.N. announced a 72-hour cease-fire between Israel and Palestine in week 31. Week 18 was a randomly chosen week to examine whether the Israeli – Palestinian conflict was still ‘hot news’. Nevertheless, the Israeli – Palestinian conflict was not ‘hot news’ for CNNI and AJE, and AJE broadcast only one fragment in that week about the conflict.
However, it was not possible to compare two weeks, because week 18 (2015) consisted of one fragment, thus CNNI and AJE have been compared to each other during the day. For instance, the fragments of the morning, afternoon, evening and overnight have been compared to each other. The news have been compared by how the news presents the topic by; length, bulletin, interviews, images, videos, violence and content. The criteria point will show the differences or comparisons between CNNI and AJE.
The results show that the differences are bigger than the comparisons. For instance, AJE is likely to broadcast more about the Palestinian situation than the Israeli situation and CNNI outlines both sides. Moreover, the content of both news channels are different. The comparisons do not go into deep details. For example, CNNI and AJE both showed three fragments with acts of violence in the morning. Furthermore, the first three fragments contained an interview for both news channels in the afternoon. Two fragments consisted of acts of violence in the evening.
It can be stated that CNNI and AJE broadcast two different stories. Moreover, CNNI is willing to broadcast about the Israeli and Palestinian situation. The percentages show that CNNI is likely to show more about the Palestinian situation than the Israeli situation. As an example, CNNI has broadcast only in the afternoon more about the Israeli situation than the Palestinian situation. The percentages show that CNNI has broadcast a little more than 40% about the Palestinian situation and a little less than 60% about the Israeli situation. Nevertheless, AJE has broadcast only about the Palestinian situation and is likely to show videos about injured Palestinians and destroyed houses and CNNI shows footage of the situation in both Palestine and Israel.
