Part 1 of 2: In 2011, Sophie McNeill said she wanted to be a journalist who reports stories from the perspective of victims in any conflict. As ABC’s Middle East Correspondent, that shouldn’t extend to uncritically echoing their political narrative.

Sophie McNeill’s decision to file virtually the exact story that she proposed in 2011 as an example of the sort of journalism she “want(s) to do” to promote her advocacy agenda, and her ABC editors’ decision to let her, stands as an indictment of the ABC’s ability to do its job in an impartial way as required by law.

Female activists in the Palestinian territories have had a lot to be concerned about over the past few weeks. First, several Palestinian electoral lists refused to publish the names and pictures of female candidates contesting the municipal election (originally scheduled for October 8), instead referring to these women as the ‘wife of’ or ‘sister of’ Palestinian men. Then, the release of new Palestinian textbooks to be taught in the first and second grade was met with outrage for its portrayal of women as witches and sorceresses.

Palestinian Embassy’s latest fact sheet on Hebron is interesting for the sources it quotes directly, the source material it distorts, and what facts it leaves out.

Settlement hype

Settlement hype, not ‘activity’, reaches new high
