The right-wing satire group managed by Caroline Glick may get the contract it needs for official broadcast
The Chairman and the Director of the Israel Broadcasting Authority (IBA) promised the Knesset's Education Committee Monday that the IBA will sign a contract with nationalistic satire Latma in two months' time, for production of a weekly program.
The satire ran successfully on an internet platform for three years but negotiations with IBA's TV Channel 1 dragged out and came to nothing, until Latma's production was halted in July due to budget limitations. The program is the brainchild of Caroline Glick, who is also Deputy Editor of the Jerusalem Post.
Nationalist legislators became involved in the matter when the IBA broadcast a promotional clip for a harsh left wing satire which depicted nationalists as murderers. This made it possible for the MKs to demand Latma as a counterbalance to the leftist satire.
MK Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home/Bayit Yehudi) said at the debate Monday that while she knows that the IBA decided, in the course of the last two weeks, to sign a contract with Latma, such decisions were announced in the past but came to nothing, and “we are conducting today's discussion in order to make sure that this thing does not happen again.”
The IBA can sure apologize for that horror they broadcast
by proving they're not opposed to a right-wing company's getting its share of the opportunities and privileges that leftists are allowed solely based on their political standing.
