One reason some media coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict in Gaza is slanted against Israel is the sheer number of Palestinian news agencies reporting on it, says Yifa Segal, joint director of the Tazpit News Agency in Jerusalem.

"When you have nine Palestinian news agencies covering events, from Israel to the surrounding Palestinian areas, then you cannot be surprised this is the information that most of the world is receiving,'' Segal said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Tazpit, Israel's sole news agency, provides up-to-the-minute news reports about the Jewish state and offers coverage to foreign press organizations.

It's the "first and only of its kind right now, and we're on the ground. We have almost 200 people spread all over the ground, and we work with media outlets, we supply them with other angles of other stories – trying to provide the full picture,'' Segal said.

"Everyone we work with is really grateful for the material because it's really unique, it's new, fresh and accurate . . . You have to make people understand that there's another source of information [they] can use . . . Slowly and surely we're getting there.''
