Monitoring Down Under

November 17, 2003 22:33 by

An enterprising group of Australian media monitors has released a very thorough study that exposes the anti-Israel bias of The Age, Melbourne’s largest daily paper.

HonestReporting is hosting the report on our site: click here to see it (in .pdf format), but be aware that it takes awhile to download.

This is a model in local activism – a very convincing, well documented case that is now being presented to the editors of The Age. Critiques of individual articles are often brushed off as limited in scope, but this is a long-term study whose conclusions can’t be denied. We’ll keep you updated when we hear the editors’ response.
