On 24th November, we held an introductory workshop for a new cohort of journalists as part of our project for Israeli opinion-shapers.
We were joined by a group of leading young reporters from diverse news agencies including Ynet, Walla, Channel 12, Globes, 103FM radio as well as ultra-Orthodox news reporters. Palestinian journalists shared their analysis about current political developments in the West Bank and Gaza and presented the geopolitical picture. The GI’s Israeli Director, Gadi Baltiansky spoke about Israeli public opinion and how the Israeli media covers the conflict. Dr Tzipi Israeli, an expert from the INSS also delved more deeply into peace journalism and offered a set of recommendations for journalists to improve their reporting.
