Since May, various Western media outlets have faced criticism from academics and journalists over the recent coverage on Palestine. Experts say rigidity in newsrooms has contributed to biased coverage.
During the recent Israel-Palestine conflict three media buildings were destroyed, journalists were assaulted, and little information has been shared by officials. Free press experts said the violations set a dangerous precedent for press freedom in the region.
The latest crackdown on the media in Israel takes the form of a billboard in the midst of charges against Prime Minister Netanyahu for accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts from a Hollywood producer.
The journalism world has experienced a chaotic news cycle this past month including the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, the media crackdown in Tanzania, the disappearance of an award-winning Chinese journalist, the emergence of digital India and so much more.
