Reshet TV reporters fired for concocting fake news against Haredis

Some likely leftists had a very stupid idea for how to find negative news about Haredi extremists:
Reshet TV, which operates Israel's Channel 2, on Sunday evening dismissed two workers who were behind a video uploaded to Facebook and which turned out to be a fake news item targeting haredim.

In the video, which was posted at the end of last week, reporter Guy Hochman was seen walking around a neighborhood in Bnei Brak holding an Israeli flag in order to examine the reactions of the city's residents. He claimed that locals spit on him and threw eggs at him and that he and the crew accompanying him felt "a real danger to their lives," as they put it.

Eyewitnesses, however, said that although the reporter invited an incident by holding the flag in the center of the neighborhood in Bnei Brak with a large concentration of the anti-Zionist Satmar hassidic sect, no one paid him the slightest attention.

Later in the video, however, something does happen. Two motorcyclists are seen standing next to the crew, grabbing the Israeli flag and breaking it.

The video was later revealed by the haredi website Kol Hazman to have been staged by the reporter.
The Satmar are a bad lot alright, but concocting fake news does nothing to solve any problems with them. So there's some more fakers who've been rightfully given the pink slip for doing something incredibly dumb.
