Shaping and skewing coverage of Israel/Palestine

I participated in this event earlier in the week on the role and responsibility of the media when reporting on Israel/Palestine. It was organised by the UTS Centre for Social Justice & Inclusion and UTS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in Sydney, Australia. Over 250 people attended the event via Zoom:

How does the media shape the conversation on human rights issues in Palestine and Israel?

Hear from Samah Sabawi, Antony Loewenstein, and Professor Saba Bebawi on how the words chosen, the narrow focus, and the heat on journalists is affecting how reality is relayed.

Social media is driving a change in popular sentiment and the push to include more perspectives in reporting. So where will the media go from here?

Shortly after this event occurred, the Australian Jewish News featured it on its front page (yes, the panel was THAT important).
