COMBAT BIAS IN THE MEDIA
The media has a profound impact on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Over the years, media outlets have become more involved in imparting their opinions on the political situation, sometimes reporting biased and unfair accounts of Israel.
"The Western press has become less an observer of this conflict than an actor in it, a role with consequences for the millions of people trying to comprehend current events, including policymakers who depend on journalistic accounts to understand a region where they consistently seek, and fail, to productively intervene." Matti Friedman, The Atlantic (Nov 30, 2014)
As you read newspapers, online media, watch TV news or listen to the radio and hear stories about Israel, there are several things you can do to counter unfair, biasedreporting.
