It’s amazing watching the bias towards Israel during their ethnic cleansing war crime.
132 Palestinians were killed during this news cycle, yet this is what leads Newshub…
Wow. It’s like the Palestinian deaths are meaningless.
The pro Israeli bias by most of the mainstream media is astonishing to watch when you put it side by side with live social media feeds.
It’s almost a different reality being espoused.
I’ve asked the Parliamentary Press Gallery how many Journalists have taken junkets to Israel after Crikey in Australia did an analysis of how many mainstream media journalists had been gifted junkets to Israel and the Middle East and compared that to those media organisations coverage.
I wanted to know how many NZ journalists have had Israeli junkets.
I asked the Press Gallery, they replied that they don’t hold that type of information. E Tu the Journalists Union said it would be highly unlikely Union members would take junkets to Israel and that members were very concerned about Palestinian Journalist deaths.
I have approached the main media organisations directly and asked if any of their journalists had taken junkets.
I said it was in the interest of journalism that we know so we can see if that has had any influence over the editorial position those media have taken during the conflict.
None of the media organisations have gotten back to me.
