Matti Friedman will discuss the numerous ways bias against Israel shows up in the media.

Learn virtually with Matti Friedman, Canadian-Israeli journalist, about the numerous ways bias against Israel shows up in the media.

Matti Friedman is a Canadian-Israeli journalist and author. He is an op-ed contributor for the New York Times and columnist for Tablet magazine. Following the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict, Friedman wrote an essay criticizing what he views as the international media’s bias against Israel and undue focus on the country, stating that news organizations treat it as “most important story on earth.” He said when he was a correspondent at the AP, “the agency had more than 40 staffers covering Israel and the Palestinian territories. That was significantly more news staff than the AP had in China, Russia, or India, or in all of the 50 countries of sub-Saharan Africa combined. It was higher than the total number of news-gathering employees in all the countries where the uprisings of the ‘Arab Spring’ eventually erupted.
