After the Yesh Atid party petitioned the Central Election Commission and asked to define Channel 14 as an "active body in the elections", the channel's news edition opened today (Thursday) with a protest by the edition's presenter Maggie Tabibi.
"I would like to start on a personal note," Tavibi said.
"Last night, the Yesh Atid party submitted a request to the election committee that means the closing of Channel 14. Days when a sitting prime minister wants to close a media outlet that criticizes him are black days for Israeli democracy. Unfortunately, all our colleagues on the other channels choose to remain silent. We would like to protest for a few seconds of silence to protest This dangerous precedent."
