What Matters Now to David Horovitz: The conflicts of war coverage

Six months on, The Times of Israel’s founding editor weighs in on the challenges confronting Jerusalem-based news site bent on providing factual, fair and fast coverage

Deputy Editor Amanda Borschel-Dan is the host of The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing and What Matters Now podcasts and heads up The Times of Israel's Jewish World and Archaeology coverage.

Welcome to What Matters Now, a weekly podcast exploring one key issue currently shaping Israel and the Jewish World, hosted by deputy editor Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Speaking in our Jerusalem office, The Times of Israel editor David Horovitz offers a rare in-depth look at the professional challenges and personal conflicts he’s faced in covering the war against Hamas for the past half year.

Horovitz gives a candid survey at what it is to run a site that, following the surprise October 7 Hamas infiltration of southern Israel and massacre of 1,200 people, jumped 600 percent in its readership to become, according to news site Press Gazette, the fastest-growing news website in the world in October and November.

The Times of Israel’s 24/7 coverage remains unabated as we mark six months of war.

So this week we ask Times of Israel editor David Horovitz, what matters now?
