The Israeli media censors a lot of the news. The American media censors even more.
I'm not sure of this, but I heard there is a PR company who's main purpose is to improve the PR of Israel in American media.
If you want honest coverage, look towards Reuters, or even better, the AFP. I found AFP to have fantastic pictures of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, as well as honest coverage.

That sounds like censorship to me, censorship that does not exist in the US. If they do that for a tourist I wonder what they do with their own media?
It also is not surprising or unbelievable that a PR firm exists to protect Israel's reputation in America. Once when I was in Yellowstone I met a lobbyist from a Japanese company who lived in Washington DC. His job was just to try to win pro- his company legislation. There are apparently thousands of such lobbyists in DC. Weird, huh?
However, off of my soapbox and back to the subject, I have found the media sources outside of the US such as the BBC seem to have at least a wider angle lens when it comes to reporting the news. To me it is always hard to say what is honest coverage but I think that if you can get a few different news sources from a few different countries the combined total of what you hear will probably be more accurate. Just my opinion, but when you hear the same thing from multiple sources it tends to have more credibility than any single source.
