The view from Tel Aviv

Ruth Margalit is an Israeli journalist living in Tel Aviv. By day, she covers the crisis there for The New Yorker. By night, her young family shelters in their building’s stairwell.

On this week’s Kicker, how American framing of this week’s violence conflicts with the rest of the world’s; how Israeli military censors lost control of the narrative; and why Netanyahu’s downfall could be related to his obsession with the media. Margalit in conversation with Kyle Pope, editor and publisher of CJR.
