End of Israeli public TV?
October 31, 2016
The Israeli Parliament is discussing shutting the country’s public broadcaster with the incumbent administration accusing it of liberal bias.
The PM Benjamin Netanyahu – who is also communications minister – is supporting a bill to close the state media group, which operates a TV station and six radio stations. Its’ $90 a year licence fee was cancelled last year and there was to be a new company but the government now recommends closure.
