Media Weigh Ethics Over Access for Military Embeds to Gaza
Should journalists embed with Israeli forces to enter Gaza?
Issues around embeds are not particularly new, according to Subramaniam Vincent, director of journalism and media ethics at Santa Clara University.
In the Israel-Hamas war, but also more broadly, Vincent said it’s important for journalists to recognize that militaries have their own reasons for letting journalists embed.
“They see control of the narrative as a tool,” Vincent said. “They look at the media as a strategic tool for the conflict and for power.”
