Knesset Grapples With Israel’s Poor Media Image — Without the MediaJanuary 19, 2012 23:28 by Pesach Benson
A Knesset committee meeting discussed Israel’s poor media image — but Jewish News 1 points out a glaring omission:
And perhaps most surprising, not one member of a major foreign press outlet based here in Israel spoke at the meeting today– – no one from AP, BBC, or an American network.
Were Big Media reps invited — but not interested? Or did it not occur to the lawmakers to solicit some input from the foreign press corps?
Both possibilities are plausible.
And both possibilities say a lot about Israel’s poor media image.
