more focused and dedicated service.

HonestReporting Down Under will increase HonestReporting’s existing capacity to monitor Australian and New Zealand media for anti-Israel media bias, bringing the organisation’s considerable ability to expose instances of bias and effect change through education and action.

HonestReporting Down Under will be hosted via the main HonestReporting website at http://honestreporting.com/down-under and can be reached through email at hrdownunder@honestreporting.com.

HonestReporting CEO Joe Hyams said:

“HonestReporting already has a significant subscriber base in the Australasian region. We owe it to those supporters of Israel and media consumers who have expressed their concern at increasing anti-Israel media bias, to engage more intensively in this arena.”

While the Australian and New Zealand media are by no means the worst offenders when it comes to coverage of Israel, they are subject to the same influences as much of the western mainstream press and this is reflected in some of the problematic stories we are seeing on a regular basis.

At a time when Palestinian terrorists are being portrayed in the media as victims of Israeli malevolence, it is vital that we tackle this bias whenever and wherever the headlines are published. HonestReporting is proud to bring our expertise to Australia and New Zealand.”

With over 140,000 subscribers worldwide, HonestReporting is the world’s largest media watchdog organization dedicated to ensuring that Israel is represented fairly and accurately in the media. HR monitors the media, exposes cases of bias, promotes balance, and effects change through education and action.

    Wow how about starting with this article. “Palestinian” terrorist. There is no such a people they are Arabs. Hope you don’t make the mistake and call Judea and Samaria “Palestine”.
