Dr. Anat Balint is a visiting scholar and former media correspondent of the distinguished Haaretz daily newspaper. Her long investigative work as a journalist uncovering the behind the scenes of Israeli media has turned her into a unique scholar who experienced the industry both as a participant and an observer.
Her PhD (Goldsmiths, University of London) deals with native advertising ("branded content") and its harms to public trust in the media.
