#47 Empathy Gap/Paris Errors/Domestic Backlash
What was it like in a Paris newsroom when the attacks happened? Did the media really ignore the Beirut bombing? Plus the photoshopped "terrorist" and the backlash here in Canada. Omar Mouallem joins, and France 24's Charles Pellegrin talks to CANADALAND's Jane Lytvynenko.

Jane Lytvynenko interviews France24’s Charles Pellegrin about working in the newsroom during the Paris attacks. Then, Jesse speaks with Metro columnist Omar Mouallem about perceptions of disproportionate media coverage on the attacks in Paris and Beirut, the photoshopping of Veerender Jubbal, and mainstream media’s coverage of the attacks.
