How Fleet Street saw the 60th

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY JC RE­PORTER

A NEW sur­vey of news­pa­per and ra­dio cov­er­age of Is­rael’s 60th an­niver­sary of in­de­pen­dence has found that The Guardian and The In­de­pen­dent ran the high­est num­ber of sto­ries with “neg­a­tive” com­ment, while the Daily Tele­graph’s com­ment sto­ries were “half pos­i­tive and half neu­tral” to­wards Is­rael.

Me­dia-mon­i­tor­ing body Just Jour­nal­ism an­a­lysed 874 edi­tions of 20 publi­ca­tions from Jan­uary to March this year. It also ex­am­ined 284 BBC ra­dio broad­casts from the same pe­riod.

The sur­vey con­cluded that there were a large num­ber of breaches of jour­nal­is­tic prin­ci­ples when re­port­ing on Is­rael, usu­ally due to lack of con­text by omis­sion of rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion.
