On Wednesday, journalists Rania Khalek and Roqayah Chamseddine, started a hashtag—”#NotYourNarrative”—to call attention to the absence of Arab or Muslim voices in US media, particularly in reports that have to do with Palestinian or Arab issues.
The hashtag was successful. A number of journalists from around the world used the hashtag to vent about the domination of white privileged voices in media.
The criticisms were not limited to corporate or establishment media but also included progressive media. And Khalek wrote an article titled, “Does The Nation have a problem with Palestinians?” It was published by Electronic Intifada.
