The latest review of NPR's Israel-Palestinian conflict coverage is now available. John Felton, a retired NPR foreign editor, examined the radio and website coverage from July through September.
The coverage dealt with many issues, particularly the Palestinian application to the United Nations for recognition as a state. "After paying little attention for months to this long-developing story, NPR's radio shows covered various aspects of it during this quarter with 18 interviews and news stories; the website carried 9 news stories and blogs on the topic," wrote Felton. The stories generally met NPR's standards for "accuracy, fairness and balance," he said.
