Today on Your Call: A conversation with Haaretz's Aluf Benn

Feb 21, 2014

On today’s Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation with Aluf Benn, a veteran journalist covering foreign policy and national security and the editor-in-chief of Haaretz in Israel. Benn says that in Israel, stories involving defense, intelligence or nuclear matters must be submitted to the military censor’s office. So how do Israeli journalists cover the Israeli/Palestinian conflict? And what role do the media play in shaping public opinion about this issue? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
