Why is the struggle for media fairness so important? The media sways public opinion, which directly affects foreign policy towards Israel.
HonestReporting was formed in 2000 to respond to unfair coverage against Israel in the wake of the second Intifada. Since then, it’s prompted hundreds of corrections and retractions in the media. Stay informed on all media issues by signing up to HR’s mailing list (see below). Highlights of what you’ll get include:
- Weekly media bias alerts such as our recent campaign against The Guardian’s anti-Semitic response to the Gilad Shalit swap. The Guardian subsequently issued an apology.
- Multimedia presentations. Our slide show on defending Israel against claims of excessive force was viewed more than 85,000 times.
- Short films on media bias issues, such as misreporting on Israel’s connection to Jerusalem and efforts towards peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
- Special features such as HR’s annual Dishonest Reporter Award highlighting the worst cases of media bias throughout the year. The Guardian was the ignoble winner of the award for 2011.
