The Other War: Israelis, Palestinians and the Struggle for Media Supremacy
The event, sponsored by the Middle East Forum, was held at the New York offices of the Weil, Gotshal and Manges law firm.
Stephanie Gutmann talked about her book The Other War: Israelis, Palestinians and the Struggle for Media Supremacy, published by Encounter Books. In her book Ms. Gutmann wrote that the events in the Middle East are often manipulated and misrepresented by Western media outlets. The author also made the argument that, in this media war, she believes Israel has been consistently beaten by what she deems to be the more press-savvy Palestinians. For her research, Ms. Gutmann traveled extensively throughout the region interviewing Israeli government officials and experiencing the media battle being waged first hand. Following her remarks, she responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.
