Jews On First has an in-depth report on the people behind the Obsession DVD.

Tikun Olam has also done original reporting on Obsession.

The American Arab Anti Discrimination Committee (ADC) has launched a Mail Back the Hate campaign.

CNN produced this report on the controversy surrounding the DVD and the InterPress News Service (IPS) did this investigative piece on the groups backing the DVD.
