Newsweek published an inane piece of self-congratulatory claptrap from James Rodgers, former BBC and Reuters reporter, pushing a forthcoming book about reporting from Gaza. The headline of the article is "If you want to know what's going on in Gaza, ask a reporter."
Covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was, and is, a huge challenge for an international journalist. The demands are intense—pressure from all sides, sometimes physical danger—and the rewards not always obvious. The pressure, especially at times of intense fighting, frequently turns to abuse from audiences. This seems especially to be the case in the age of social media.

Whatever the failures of the way the conflict has been covered—both Israelis and Palestinians, and their supporters, will point to countless shortcomings—international journalists have one advantage over many others involved or interested in the conflict: They can see more of it.
Maybe they see more of what is going on than ordinary people, but they sure as hell don't report it.

Here are today's headlines from the territories in Arab newspapers:

Many of these stories are newsworthy. Few of them will ever be reported by Western reporters in Gaza and Area A.

So if you want to know what's going on in the territories, don't listen to blowhards like James Rodgers. You would do much better to read this blog instead.

I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
