Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for The New York Times will combine diplomatic and political analysis with behind-the-scenes stories from his reporting to explore the challenges faced by a journalist covering two distinctly opposing narratives: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in 2010. He will address such issues of balance, fairness, access and reader expectations.
