“News or Propaganda: lessons from a decade of war in Syria”.
The distinguished journalist Jonathan Steele, former Chief Foreign Correspondent with The Guardian, has kindly agreed to give an online talk to us entitled “News or Propaganda: lessons from a decade of war in Syria”.
The talk will be on Wednesday April 14th at 8pm.
Jonathan has made several reporting trips to Syria since the crisis erupted in 2011. He will analyse how hard it has been for the Western media to cover the war and how the British government has run a secret programme of controlling the narrative from the anti-Assad side.
Jonathan was a journalist with The Guardian from 1965, becoming Chief Foreign Correspondent. He has reported on Afghanistan, Russia, Iraq and many other countries, and has won several awards for his journalism, including the Martha Gellhorn prize for Journalism in 2006.
