Riyadh (UNA/SPA) - Yesterday, as part of the Saudi Media Forum 2024 in its third edition, which is organized by the Radio and Television Authority in cooperation with the Saudi Journalists Association in Riyadh during the period from 20 to 21 February 2024 AD, a dialogue session was held entitled “Western Media: Principles that have Fallen.” In the test, political researcher and international relations expert Salman Al-Ansari, Bernad Heikal, professor of Near Eastern studies at Princeton University, and head of the Center for Political Thinking, professor at the University of Baghdad, Dr. Ihsan Al-Shammari, participated.

During the session, the participants explained that the Western media faced a special testing moment during some events that witnessed a clash between countries, as there was clear duplication in the reporting of events by media platforms and agencies.

The participants confirmed the existence of a specific policy followed by these media outlets, which may have specific goals, stressing the need for the media to be committed to conveying the truth accurately and objectively.

The participants also indicated that the Western media usually highlights the negative aspects, especially in the Middle East, noting that the Arab media transmits the event as it is, with its positives and negatives, while Western news agencies are biased in reporting events.
