For Fact’s Sake podcast: Are journalists being targeted in Gaza?

It’s the final For Fact’s Sake podcast of the year, and we’re focusing on the conflict in Gaza, where among the thousands of civilian deaths, scores of journalists have been killed.

We speak to Fiona O’Brien, UK bureau director of Reporters Without Borders, about why so many journalists have been part of the tragic human toll of the Israeli attack on Gaza, and whether journalists in the area are being targeted by the military.

She also explains how the killing of journalists in the region amplifies misinformation and inaccurate state narrratives about the war.
