An Inside Look at How The Media Covers Israel: A Fireside Chat with Avi Mayer, Jerusalem-Based Media Relations Liaison

July 14, 2022

Israel may not often get a fair shake in the news media, but what’s the cause and the solution? Is the problem inherent bias on the part of journalists, is it a more sophisticated messaging on the part of anti-Israel activists, or is it the complexity of the conflict that makes Israel inevitably have a more challenging time?

Few individuals know the truth better than Avi Mayer. Mayer has served as the Senior Spokesperson for the American Jewish Committee, the international spokesman of The Jewish Agency for Israel, as well as a foreign media liaison for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

In this week’s episode of The Honest Report podcast, we sit down with Avi Mayer to discuss the reality for today’s journalists in Israel, and analyze why coverage of the Jewish state looks the way it does, and what can be done to ensure the truth about Israel gets more airtime and coverage in the future.
