Student Activism in Dallas

December 9, 2003 15:53 by

In July, we noted that an enterprising group of Dallas teenagers met with the President and Editor of the Dallas Morning News to discuss the paper’s problematic coverage of Israel.

The student activists — Jordan Hirsch (10th grade), Daniel Bonner (8th grade), and Steven Rosson (11th grade)– have now had another session with the paper’s editorial board, which was written up in the Texas Jewish Post .

By all accounts, the meeting went very well. Hirsch, the group’s chairman, said “The meeting was productive but there’s still alot to be accomplished. We will continue to put pressure on the Dallas Morning News and other media outlets to report fairly about Israel.”
