In this panel discussion, the film director Ken Loach, columnist and commentator Owen Jones, the BBC’s former Middle East correspondent, Tim LLewellyn, and Greg Philo, director of the Glasgow Media Group, will join others to debate where the mainstream media gets it right, and where it gets it wrong, over Israel’s onslaught on Gaza. There will be a particular focus on the BBC, examining whether the publicly funded broadcaster’s coverage is accurately and impartially reflecting the facts on the ground. And, in the age of social media and internet news, we’ll be asking: how relevant is the BBC now in providing information about the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land? This is a Palestine Solidarity Campaign event PSC be providing advice on how to continually challenge the BBC and other media over its coverage of the Israeli occupation.
THIS EVENT IS NOW OVERBOOKED. I’M AFRAID IT IS TOO FULL TO JOIN A WAITING LIST.
This event is fully booked.
