Antony Loewenstein

Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
RSVP required (rsvp@cyber.law.harvard.edu)
This event will be webcast live at 12:30 pm ET.

The post 9/11 Western media have done a terrible job of accurately reporting the majority of the globe. In 2007, Australian journalist, author and blogger Antony Loewenstein traveled to Egypt, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Cuba and China to investigate how the net was challenging authoritarian regimes, the role of Western multinationals such as Google in the assistance of web filtering and how misinformed we are in the West towards states considered "enemies" or "allies".

Antony Loewenstein (http://antonyloewenst...­) is a Sydney-based blogger, author of The Blogging Revolution (2008) and My Israel Question (2006) and freelance journalist who has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Haaretz and The Nation, among many others.
