How the New York Times Rigs News on Palestine and Israel
Thu Oct 17 2019 @ 4:0
Come join Columbia SJP for a talk by James North on mainstream media bias against Palestine. The New York Times is one of the most popular news outlets in the United States, and is favored amongst many progressives. However, a close analysis of its reporting on Palestine reveals systematic bias marked by Orientalism, slanted language, and selective coverage that ultimately serves to to distort the reality of ethnic cleansing and settler colonialism. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
James North is an independent reporter and editor-at-large of Mondoweiss, a progressive news outlet that reports on Palestine, the State of Israel, and the United States. He has reported on the Global south for over four decades and has contributed to publications such as The Nation, HuffPost, and In These Times. You can follow Mr. North on Twitter at @JamesNorth7
