David Isaac, Senior Israel Correspondent at JNS.org.
“A free press is a pillar of our democracy, its protection appearing in the First Amendment for that reason. Unfortunately, the press in this country has fallen into a sorry state, where journalists all too often choose advocacy over impartiality, propaganda over facts.”
David Isaac has worked for 25 years in the news business, starting as a stringer at the Connecticut Jewish Ledger. He has since worked as a reporter and editor for Investor’s Business Daily, World Israel News, Newsmax Media, The Washington Times’ news site Times247 and the Washington Free Beacon, to name a few.
He was awarded a Media Fellowship at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in 2004. He is currently writing, directing and producing a documentary film series on Middle East history.
“I am privileged to be a part of the Free Press Foundation, whose mission it is to train a new generation of reporters and editors. Only through nurturing a new generation of honest, inquisitive and skilled reporters can we hope to replace the old ink.
