The Voice of Israel, Danny Seaman, explains the origins of ‘Fake News’, and the agenda driven anti-Israel media bias.
Danny Seamen is an Israeli media professional and former civil servant, mainly active in the fields of foreign service and public diplomacy.
Danny worked in the Israeli civil service for 31 years (1983-2014). Between 2000-2010, he served as the director of the Israeli Government Press Office (GPO). That is part of the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, responsible for the foreign media contingent in Israel. His last position was Deputy Director General for Information at the Israeli Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs. In January 2014, Seaman retired from his position.
Built-in Anti-Israel Bias
…Danny Seaman knows exactly why the State of Israel looks so bad on television screens around the world. He explained:
“At the direct instruction of the Palestinian Authority, the offices of the foreign networks in Jerusalem are compelled to hire Palestinian Arab directors and producers. Those people determine what is broadcast. The journalists will certainly deny that – but that is reality.”
This is just the tip of the iceberg that explains the inherent bias of the media reporting on Israel. Once you hear the full story, you will ask yourself, “how you can ever trust any media every again?” Reporting on Israel around the world is “fake news” par excellence.
Another journalist who exposed the media bias in the mass media against Israel is former AP reporter Mati Freidman. After years of working for the AP, he went public with “What the Media Gets Wrong About Israel.” It is an essential article to read to further educate oneself on the inherent media bias against Israel.
