How can we encourage mainstream media coverage of Israeli and Palestinian nonviolence leaders?
I think they're ready. No doubt. The regular folks I talk to on the day to day don't like to watch news. And for one simple reason: it's depressing, discouraging, and has no focus on the positive (non-violent) actions being taken by individuals/groups. No communication of great things happening in these "violence stricken" areas. There would be a transition... or rather... decompression for audiences to go through, to break free from such a violent focused expectation on the news. But... word would travel fast, especially if we were to strategically publicize/market the change thru appropriate (social) networks. At the people level.

How can we encourage mainstream media coverage of Israeli and Palestinian nonviolence leaders?
During mainstream "coverage" of such topics, maybe we can have a "live feed" of related stories/individuals in/from Israel and Palestine running along the bottom of the screen. Along with a URL, so viewers can look further on their own. A few minute "story" doesn't cut it and minimizes the truth.... which is distortion. But, this would rely upon mainstream news to be willing to give more to the people, allowing them to dig deeper. I'd love to be able to tap into the actual people living in these areas. Grassroots reporters or sorts. Don't see mainstream media giving up control and risking the masses seeing much outside of their agenda or on their coverage menu. Ideally, I'd love it if we could click/pick&choose more of what news I'd like to see via TV. Rate the stories. Rate the coverage. Much like we do with individuals posts via Facebook (like), Google+ (+), Tumblr (notes), etc. This would at least show what people are interested in, and what they're not. Perhaps one day we'll be able to access & rate news stories/coverage via TV, much like we do online.
