The concept of objective news reporting just doesn't exist in Israeli culture. The writers of the show and the directors make sure that the government, that is Likud Binyamin Netanyahu's government looks as bad as possible to help promote, campaign for their buddy Shelly Yachimovitch of the Israeli Labor Party.

"Don't buy food out of season. Tomatoes are a summer crop and cabbage is for winter."Israeli anti-Israel extreme Left anarchists, who had been on the faux human rights Estelle, were featured, full venom and lies, on Israeli television. They should have had been kept totally incommunicado. Instead we saw and heard them smiling and smirking as they spouted their anti-Israel rhetoric and lies on Israel's Chanel 1.
The news is in Hebrew. I don't know how well it will work if you click. Watch 7:33 for that immature Obama Romnesia remark and 13:18 food prices and 16:40 the extreme-Leftist who had been on the Estelle.
Another big problem is that the interviewers interrupt and verbally attack anyone they don't agree with. Only the Leftists and anti-government interviewees, the more extreme the better, are allowed to give complete answers.
And shades of that movie classic "War of the Worlds" panic, the "nationwide" earthquake drill in Israel was broadcast on the news as if it had really happened. I was at work in Sha'ar Binyamin most of the day, and we didn't participate in the drill at all.
