Media bias to be topic of presentation on Oct. 24

Nadine Richterman, the Florida regional director of CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America – will speak on media bias, especially as it relates to Israel and anti-Semitism, during a presentation Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in Largo.

Richterman will address the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties at the Bank of Tampa, 10980 S. Belcher Road.

The event is open to the public, but for security purposes, advanced registration is required.

Richterman will give an introduction to her organization. “We need to learn about and be able to identify media bias and also know what you can do about it and why it is important to do so,” she said.

In learning more about the subject, participants will become more familiar with the history of modern Israel and learn more about the terms, “occupied” and “disputed territories.”

She will also discuss what can be done on college campuses to assist students with increasing anti- Semitic biases. Steve Schwersky, JCRC’s co-chair, noted, “It is very important that we are given a ‘tool kit’to help us become proactive and responsible.”

“This will prove to be an eyeopening event,” said Stuart Berger, JCRC co-chair. “We are constantly seeking the truth; we need to learn what exactly is the truth, and what is not. We are very eager to have Nadine and CAMERA, come to our community.”

For more information, and to register for event, contact Maxine Kaufman, or (727) 333-3106.
