Every year, a chance organization publishes the Representation Index, which it edits with Yifat Media Studies and the Seventh Eye. The measure examines how many Arab interviewees appeared during the past year on prominent radio and television programs. Over the years, "London and Kirschenbaum" have led in this index, but it dropped last year with Channel 10 and network mergers.
Reno's program has taken its place in the top of the IDF waves with a high percentage of representation of 9.2 percent. Second place is the "Agenda" radio program, which guides the Neubach Foundation here with 8.7 percent. Last morning stands "News Morning" in the submission of Niv Ruskin Request 12 with 0.8 Arab respondents only.
According to the survey, in 2019 there were 4,371 speakers from the Arab company out of 156,469 respondents in the main media stages of the media, below the percentage of representation of 2.6 percent. This is similar to the data in previous years (2.9 percent in 2018 and 2017). However, the percentage of women from Arabic society continued to rise consistently for the fourth year.More in Walla!

The main topic of concern for Arab media in the media is the election campaign (28 percent), of which 14 percent is the appearance of experts, such as Afif Abu Mukh, Spa Farahat and Joseph MacLeeda. The second most prevalent is murder, violence and crime (12 percent), the third is national politics (7 percent), and then in descending order - protest against the wave of violence (6 percent), social and community affairs (5 percent), and culture and the arts (with 5 percent) ).
Idan Ring from a chance association said following the findings: "The 2019 summary data of the Representation Index demonstrates how appropriate representation for Arab citizens is a matter of decision and prioritization of editors and submitters in leading programs rather than reality. Those who understand that appropriate representation for Arab citizens is an integral part of the mission. His professional ability to produce beautiful representation data and gives his audience and viewers a balanced, more complex and interesting reality image The growing gap between Arab representation on public channels as opposed to the sharp exclusion in the commercials of soft TV shows should plague us all. Harim is not supposed to make television newsmen ignore one-fifth of the nation's citizens and betray their mission to talk about and to the entire public. That is not what professional television should look like. "More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS
