Yonatan Mendel has attacked press standards in the Israeli media
Very interesting, snappily-written article from the London Review of Books.
Israeli journalist Yonatan Mendel explores what he believes is the unwitting, anti-Palestinian bias which pervades the Israeli press.
He also details his own experience of trying to land a reporting job at Ma’ariv, a leading Israeli newspaper.
“At my interview the boss asked how I could possibly be objective,” he writes. “I had spent too much time with Palestinians; I was bound to be biased in their favour. I didn’t get the job.”
