In November, the New Statesman removed from its website a paid-for post funded by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC).
This was not related to the contents of the post – which can be read here, along with an earlier post – but was part of a larger conversation within the organisation about guidelines around advertorial and the presentation of advertiser-written content. We removed the post without explanation to the PSC, which was discourteous.
The New Statesman prides itself on independent journalism from around the world, and will continue to cover the Israel/Palestine conflict in line with its editorial values. We are committed to providing our readers with a range of perspectives on this and other issues and reaffirm our commitment to broad, sceptical public debate on the conflict.
