How do journalists share complex issues, particularly when they are writing for an audience which is on the other side of the world?

NIF Australia is hosting a discussion with John Lyons, the author of a new book, Dateline Jerusalem which looks at how Israel is covered by the Australian media and a former Middle East Correspondent for the Australian, Anshel Pfeffer senior correspondent and columnist for Haaretz and the Israeli correspondent for the Economist and Dina Kraft, a Tel Aviv-based journalist for the Los Angeles Times and Christian Science Monitor, to hear how foreign correspondents work to tell other people’s stories and shape the discourse in their home country.
This conversation will look at the increasingly important role media plays in how conflicts and politics are perceived and prioritised.
How do they decide what to cover?
Which voices to elevate?
How to make people care?

These three senior Israeli and Australian journalists will share their thoughts on their role in determining the headlines.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from these three experienced journalists.

The event is on Tuesday October 12 at 7:30pm. Free registration at:
