Getting it Right: Israel, the Media and the Modern Middle East

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, we bring together two presenters for a joint session on Israel and the media:

Joe Hyams: Six Secrets of Media Objectivity - Quantifying Media Bias and Responding Effectively.
Lessons and first hand insights from the November 2012 media war. We'll explore the role of social media, photography and the power of grassroots action. You'll gain behind-the-scenes perspective and practical communications training from the Executive Director of HonestReporting, an Israeli non-profit.

Dexter Van Zile: Telling Israel's Story in a Post-Shoah World.
In the first few decades after the Shoah, Israel's legitimacy was largely unquestioned. Now that the catastrophe is less fresh in people's memories, Israel's role in protecting the rights of Jews in a region where minorities are badly oppressed has become an increasingly important story to tell to American and global audiences.
