The Arab and Middle Eastern Journalists Association has called on all news organizations to be mindful of implicit and explicit bias in their coverage of war in Ukraine, saying that they have tracked examples of racist news coverage that ascribes more importance to some victims of war over others. AMEJA condemned and categorically rejected orientalist and racist implications that any population or country is “uncivilized” or bears economic factors that make it worthy of conflict, insisting that newsrooms must not make comparisons that weigh the significance or imply justification of one conflict over another.
