Media Reporting on Palestine & Israel: What Are We & Aren’t We Doing Right?

While social media has allowed for instant reporting of what’s happening in Palestine and Israel, many of us around the world continue to rely on traditional media to stay updated on the violence that has been going on in a decades long conflict. But news organisations, especially English-language news media based in the West, have also often been called out for taking sides or for “sanitising” the violence when reporting about Palestine. Now, why does it matter how the media frames and reports on Palestine and Israel? Is objectivity possible or simply a guise for taking sides? To delve into these issues, we speak to Dr Dina Matar, Chair of the Centre for Global Media & Communication, and Chair of the Centre for Palestine Studies, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
