About this product
- DescriptionIn this nuanced and detailed study of newspaper reporting during the escalation of the second Intifada in the fall of 2000, Daniel Dor shows how real events are subject to distortion and manipulation by the media. In an analysis of the heart of Israel's media establishment-the newspapers Yediot Ahrot, Ma'ariv, and Ha'aretz-he finds a wide gap between the reality reported by field reporters and the eventual newspaper accounts framed by editors. Led by beliefs, opinions, and emotional responses rather than the facts provided by their reporters, these editors created a platform on which a new and fearful narrative for Israeli-Palestinian relations was built. Yet while Dor demonstrates that the media construct the news rather than simply report it, his sophisticated analysis also shows that one entity or person is responsible. Rather than a supreme authority, Dor argues, it is the influence of fear, anger, igrance, and a desire to please and sell newspapers that threatens the freedom of the press in a liberal democracy.
- Author BiographyDaniel Dor teaches in the Department of Communication, Tel Aviv University. A graduate of Stanford University, he has worked as a senior news editor at two of Israel's leading newspapers. He lives in Tel Aviv.
