Covering the Conflict
The changing face of the Israel/Palestine conflict in the media & how it’s reported
Former BBC correspondent in Gaza, James Rodgers, discusses the issues raised in his new book Headlines from the Holy Land (Palgrave 2015)
James Rodgers – his earlier book’ No Road Home’ described his time in Gaza during the 2nd Palestinian intifada. He also served in Moscow and in Washington during 9/11. He now lectures at City University and is a local resident.
“The challenges which the Israeli- Palestinian conflict represents for diplomats, and for the news media, are changing. Addressing them is complicated by a lack of political will, and, as always, the absence of obvious solutions” James Rodgers
