Oops.

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.
