Jewish Society Discovers Honest Reporting
Photo bias and the distortion of facts by the media were the topics on the agenda in a meeting of the Jewish Society with special guest Simon Plosker, Managing Editor of HonestReporting.
HonestReporting monitors the news for bias and inaccuracy in coverage of the Arab-Israeli conflict and Simon illustrated some key examples found in recent analysis.
Simon explained: “Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with Israel, it’s about how the media are covering things. There is often a distortion of the facts; doctored photos and incorrect captions give subliminal and incorrect messages.”
The Jewish Society meet at lunchtimes and after School, giving the Jewish community at CHS a chance to delve more into their culture.
