45] –On Sept. 14 at 1
PM ET, hear about the Press and Palestine: The Bad, the Ugly...and a Shift?
Register at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIsf-2grDwqHNHuXLTMPNCHTHS5w68erG_a.
For decades, we have seen an extreme Israeli/Zionist bias in press coverage of
Israel/Palestine. Israeli hasbara (propaganda) has been the nearly universal
message in mainstream media. How has that been accomplished so effectively? In
what ways does the press present a dishonest and unjust depiction of Israeli
oppression and Palestinian resistance? In recent years, we are beginning to see
occasional positive changes, where Palestinian perspectives and voices are heard
and Israel's crimes are more honestly reported. Where are we seeing these
shifting norms and how widespread are they? What factors may have contributed
to changes in coverage of Israel/Palestine?
What can we do, as individuals and as a movement, to achieve more honest
and justice-oriented media coverage of Israeli colonialism and apartheid and
the Palestinian people's liberation struggle?
47] – On Wed., Sept. 14
from 6:30 to 8:30 PM ET, Indivisible will be joined by Dan Pfeiffer (host of
Pod Save America and author of Battling the Big Lie: How Fox, Facebook and the
MAGA Media are Destroying America) to talk about how lies around voting and
elections provide the pathway for bad actors to obtain unearned power. You will
be told what states, people, and campaigns are most vulnerable and how we can
and must disrupt voting-related disinformation. When lies are on the
ballot, we have both a moral and an existential responsibility to stop them
from winning. If we do not fight back now, America’s faith in its democracy
will face irreparable harm. Join in the Truth Brigade Fight Election Disinformation
