CJN Picks up on HRC Alert

by Mike Fegelman

The Canadian Jewish News picked up on our recent media action alert where we took City TV to task for an unforgiving error this past August.

According to CJN reporter Dave Gordon: "Bayefsky was preceded by Aryeh Green, director of Media Central in Jerusalem, who discussed how the media are influenced when reporting on Israel and how journalists interpret the situation in the Middle East.

  • Green rebuked Toronto?s Citytv for its Aug. 14 broadcast about clashes at a construction site in the West Bank between pro-Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers. The report, by Citytv host Gord Martineau, said that 11 Palestinians were killed. In fact, no deaths occurred, Green said. HonestReporting Canada called attention to the error, and says the correction offered was terse and insufficient. Such misinformation coupled with ignorance is a double battle that has to be fought, Green said. ?There is a lack of understanding among foreign journalists about Israel.?
