Your government radio station at work

It's no secret that Israel's government-funded public radio station is sharply biased to the Left. Still, it's at least somewhat surprising that something as blatant as this happened.
Public radio host Keren Noibach, who hosts the Voice of Israel's main news program, said on air that Israel kills Arabs for no reason.

After the remark caused an uproar, the station demanded Noibach publicly apologize, which she did.
Noibach hosts a program called Seder Yom (agenda) between 8:00 - 10:00 am Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. I used to listen to it on the way back from driving the kids to school back in the days when our car radio worked. Note - no other action taken by the government-owned radio station.

What could go wrong?

This terrible "reporter" was a ubiquitous foreign news correspondent for the IBA's equally left-leaning TV news station for years. Her reports were more like tiresome rants. IBA is in big financial trouble these days. No wonder.

I am a subscriber to Israel Media Watch's emails (info@imw.org.il) and just today they reported that Keren Noibach was reprimanded by her supervisor.

קרן נויבך ננזפת
ביום שני האחרון (15.2.10) במהלך התכנית "סדר יום" ברשת ב',התדיינה קרן נויבך בנושא הסרבנות ופלטה את המשפט הבא :"ערבים כאן בדרך כלל הורגים, לא מפנים, סתם הורגים אותם".
הממונה על קבילות הציבור, מר אלישע שפיגלמן ,מצא את התלונה מוצדקת, נזף בגב' נויבך בחריפות ודרש התנצלותה בשידור בתוכנית הקרובה.
אנו נמשיך לעקוב.

Translation: "Keren Noibach is reprimanded: Last Monday (15.2.10) on the program Seder Yom on Channel 2, Keren Noibach was discussing the issue of refusal and blurted out the following sentence: "They generally kill Arabs here. They don't evacuate them, they just kill them for no reason". The official for public complaints, Mr. Elisha Spiegelman, found the complaints justified, harshly reprimanded Ms. Noibach and demanded an apology on the next broadcast.

We will continue to follow this subject".

End of translation.

I just saw there was a link within the email to the IMW article:
