In the beginning of October, CAMERA Fellow at Cornell University, Reut Baer, hosted Yishai Goldflam, who spoke about media bias against Israel. Both CAMERA and the Cornellians for Israel (CFI) cosponsored Goldflam, who focused his lecture both on general biases, but also specific instances of bias and inaccuracy that happened over the course of this summer.
Baer’s goal was to “impact and educate Cornell students on the media coverage of Israel that can be biased or inaccurate. Additionally, through showing instances of media coverage going wrong, we tried to show how to go about reporting news in an appropriate manner.”
“I had someone let me know that this will convince them to attend future CIPAC events,” Baer stated. Additionally, Baer recalled that students who attended the event said it was extremely informative and delivered in a factual, unbiased manner.
This fall semester, CFI has hosted Gil Cohen-Magen, a lecture by Dr. Eric R Mandel titled The New Middle East: Challenges of the Twenty First Century, Benji Lovitt, and a talk with Judge Stephen Adler. Our CAMERA Fellow and CFI is on a roll! We look forward to hearing about the great events they will host this spring semester!
Mazal Tov CFI!
