CAMERA's Andrea Levin: Essential To Redouble Efforts

Andrea.jpg

In an interview with Times of Israel, Andrea Levin, CAMERA's Executive Director, emphasizes how critical it is for Israel's supporters to advocate for accurate news media coverage, especially now:

From the perspective of CAMERA executive director Andrea Levin, Israel supporters should “actually redouble our work in the information battle,” she said.

“Israel’s adversaries aren’t resting a moment from their efforts to mislead the public and defame the Jewish state,” said Levin, whose group frequently blows the whistle on distorted coverage in news agencies including The New York Times and BBC.

“The many voices speaking out on the facts are an invaluable asset in correcting the record continuously and making clear, for instance, that Israel is defending its civilian population in the face of an aggressor that exploits its own women and children as defensive shields,” said Levin.

Of course Andrea is exactly right, and we should all be grateful for CAMERA's invaluable work in this regard. Loved for example the NYC billboard calling out the vile NY Times Israel coverage.

Only question(s) is what going forward, are most effective techniques for addressing the ongoing media onslaught against Israel and its thoroughly dishonest authors.

THis mornings BBC NEWSLINE, did an extensive piece on GAZA CITY,with statistics,interviews and comments about Israeli attacks ,
NEVER ONCE, was there a mention of WHY, Israel was attacking, IE 1,000"s of Rockets fired at Israeli Civilians, Terror Tunnels, and the use of Civilian Arabs, used as Human Shields..
NPR broadcasts these Biased innacurate and Anti Israel articles without any comment on context,
All the supporters of NPR should challenge this distorted reporting.
