Gaza: The Media Goes to War

Tue February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST


How did the mainstream media use the framing of 9/11 to describe the Oct. 7 attacks, and how does their coverage privilege the Israeli narrative?

How do people consume the news and the battle for ideas over the depiction of the conflict in Israel and Gaza?
