Debating the media coverage of the current Hamas-Israel conflict (with Tom Gross)

July 28, 2014

For those interested, I attach a video of a debate from a couple of days ago on i24 News on the international media coverage of the current Hamas-Israel conflict.

With former Sunday Telegraph Mideast correspondent Tom Gross, Russia Today Mideast bureau chief Paula Slier, and Haaretz’s Netta Ahituv.

Because it is quite long (20 minutes) I won’t include other items in this dispatch.

(There is a small technical pause at the start, but the rest is ok.)


This can also be watched here:

I also wrote an article for The National Post on the media coverage of the current Hamas-Israel conflict.


For those who missed them and would like to read them, other dispatches from this month on the Hamas-Israel conflict include the following, all of which can be viewed here.

* Haaretz: “Hamas are Palestinian neo-Nazis” (& Will an artificial island help Gaza?)

* Is the BBC really “pro-Israel”?

* Under pressure, UN today admitted Hamas stored rockets at UN school (& “The answer is stomach-turning”)

* Israel’s Iron Dome is amazing, and that’s a problem (& Al-Ahram: “Destroy Hamas -- Thank you Netanyahu”)

* Abbas to Hamas: “What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?” (& Media misreports international law)
