Lesson of journalism from Amira Hass
On sunday 2nd December 2007 Amira Hass gave a lesson of journalism in Rome.
Amira Hass is an israeli journalist, she writes for Haaretz and she's the
only israeli journalist to live among palestinians.
At the beginning they showed a 5 minute video where Amira Hass was
interviewed near the israeli barrier. During the interview, an israeli
soldier fires at somebody and Amira gets rather scared.
After the video Amira Hass went to the stage and started (speaking english)
her lesson of journalism. The first thing she said was "Don't believe in
cliché", don't believe the officiale version of things.
I think that the most important lesson is: if you want to be a good reporter you need to be there, to see things.
You can see the audio and the video of this lesson, the lesson is in english language
