The scandal rocking Israel: Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes allegedly suggested to give the PM positive coverage. In return, Netanyahu would stymie Mozes’ biggest competitor – Sheldon Adelson-owned newspaper Israel Hayom.
Media tycoon Arnon Mozes is the businessman who negotiated a quid pro quo with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in conversations caught on tape that came to light on Sunday.
Haaretz reported Sunday that suspicions in the main corruption affair involving Netanyahu are backed by recordings documenting contacts between him and a businessman over mutual benefits.
According to Channel 2, several months ago Netanyahu offered Mozes, publisher of the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, a deal that would limit the circulation of the free daily Israel Hayom, Yedioth’s top competitor and widely regarded as the prime minister’s mouthpiece. In return, Mozes would make Yedioth’s coverage more sympathetic to Netanyahu.Jefferson23, PADemD, broiles and 7 othersTwo way street, Koko, Enthusiast, , Johnny Rash, SurrealAmerican, Babel 17 like this
