April 1 in Ames: Lecture on Media Coverage of the Arab-Israeli Conflict

You are invited to a lecture sponsored by the Israel Education Committee of the Ames Jewish Congregation and ISU Hillel:

Media Coverage of the Arab-Israeli Conflict
Gary Kenzer Tuesday, April 1, 7:30 p.m., 1414 Molecular Biology, Iowa State University (Lots of parking space available)

Gary Kenzer is the National USA Executive Director of Honest Reporting, a watchdog organization that monitors media coverage of Israel and the Middle East. To ensure that Israel is represented fairly and accurately, Honest Reporting exposes cases of bias and promotes balance. As a result of its efforts, since 2000 there have been hundreds of apologies, retractions, and revisions from news outlets. Mr. Kenzer has over 25 years experience in the non-profit industry. Prior to assuming his present position, he served for 9 years as the Executive Director of Magen David Adom USA (Israel's emergency medical health, blood and disaster services) and with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), both grassroots organizations in the US. He has a degree from Loyola University of Chicago.
