Hebrew press' three senior columnists 'planted by Hussein Obama's men'

Independent investigative journalist Yoav Yitzchak has charged the most senior columnists of Israel's three biggest Hebrew dailies (Haaretz, Yediot Aharonot and Maariv) have been 'planted by President Hussein Obama's men.' Yitzchak, a well-known journalist in his own right, has asked Israelis to stop buying those papers.
The maverick investigative journalist, who has hounded many leading politicans to the end of their careers, added that “He who reads the empty words written by supposedly senior writers, like Hussein (Nachum) Barne’a, Hussein (Yoel) Marcus and Hussein (Ben) Caspit, could mistakenly think that the newspapers they write for are just extensions of the White House Press Center, which are entrusted with representing the policy of the Obama administration in Israel.”

“These writers and newspapers preach almost daily the need to accept Obama’s plan and implement it immediately, and for Netanyahu to retreat from his promises to the public,” Yitzchak complained. “The contempt for Netanyahu and for what he represents supercedes even their duty to act according to journalistic values and hold truth sacred.”


There is no point in quoting their articles, an exasperated Yitzchak said. “They write in a way that demeans the state of Israel, the will of the citizens and Netanyahu in particular. Those newspapers serve as a de-facto opposition to both the government of Israel and the citizens of Israel. And so, in place of a fair and serious press that presents information as it is, we are ‘stuck’ with a tendentious press which engages in information profiteering and serves a diplomatic agenda which is more acceptable in some of the moderate Arab states [than in Israel].”

The leading pundits ignore the fact that the Israeli public voted for the right-wing parties, Yitzchak said, and that this public “expects them to carry out their plans, including large-scale construction, at least in the settlement blocs.” They make fun of Netanyahu but adulate Obama, even when he treats the Prime Minister of Israel in a humiliating fashion – talking to Netanyahu from his Presidential chair with his shoes on the Presidential desk – and tries to dictate to Netanyahu and the entire State of Israel a diplomatic plan that involves creating a Palestinian state,” despite the fact that Hamas controls Gaza and Iran constitutes a clear and present existential danger.

The only way to stop this evil phenomenon, Yitzchak concluded, is for newspaper readers to take real steps against these writers and newspapers, and to stop buying newspapers that do not maintain an Israel-Zionist-Jewish identity.

He's right, you know.

Israel's media is overwhelmingly leftist. They've hated Netanyahu since his first term as Prime Minister and after this speech, they will hate him even more.

You can just hear their howls of frustration and cries of disappointment.

Take over the press and you control the people. "O" Hitlers way.

Is Yitzchak conflating the Israeli Gov't with the Israeli People, because the former hardly represents the latter, any more than the GOP represents America.
