An expert panel comprised of Christian Kerr, Senior Reporter for The Australian; James Campbell, State Politics Editor for the Herald Sun; and Dr Jennifer Oriel, Political Scientist and Public Commentator, will discuss the extent to which media bias is present in Australian and international media, how to identify biased versus balanced journalism, and how individuals and the community can most effectively expose bias and push for more nuanced and even-handed reporting about Israel.

Those keen to gain insight into the meaning and motivation behind bias and what stands in the way of disseminating a balanced narrative about Israel should not miss this excellent opportunity to hear from some of Melbourne’s top media experts.

Wednesday 17 February, 8:00pm at Beth Weizmann Community Centre.

The entry fee is $10/$5 for students. Register at Zionism Victoria, 9272 5544 or
