How can we encourage mainstream media coverage of Israeli and Palestinian nonviolence leaders?
The day that I stand in an airport lounge and watch Budrus instead of Anderson Cooper will be a wonderful day. But it ain’t gonna happen because television news today is a closed system almost impervious to change. But that’s OK, because social media, including YouTube, and other alternative media such as JustMedia, will eventually capture significant audiences. The answer is down the road, but we’re getting there.

Ironic that this question is being posed 72 hours before UN statehood debate begins, when settlers and others opposed to Palestinian statehood, intent on grabbing media attention, may use violence to do so, possibly touching off violent reactions within Palestine. More important than ever to keep the non-violent alternative in the public consciousness. Agree with others that alternative media offer more possibilities than mainstream media in such a setting.

Julia: I assigned my reporting students to "cover" your TED talk and have also invited them to join this forum and respond to your question. Don't know if they will as it's last-minute, but we'll see. Recognize the problem of grabbing the media's attention for something that's not bang-bang or conflict. Compelling human stories don't always make it through the media filter. But compelling, honest stories are a start.
