Precisely just before the elections, Yair Lapid made a mistake of leftists

Everything they say about Channel 14 will probably be true.

This is a propaganda channel for all intents and purposes, even if it is mainly intended to convince the convinced.

But Lapid, do you really want us to talk about mobilized media?

Lapid at the UN Assembly: "Two states for two peoples - the right thing for Israel" (Photo: Reuters)

It is worth noting that there is quite a bit of truth in the basis of Yair Atid/Yesh Lapid's claim.

More precisely there is a lot of truth.

Channel 14 is not a "right-wing" or "conservative" channel.

Channel 14 is a Bibisti channel

The Greek philosopher Epictetus warned against friction with strangers and fools.

If there is no choice, and those fools force themselves on you, you must be careful not to degrade to their level.

"If the friend is dirty, it is likely that whoever comes into contact with him will also become dirty, even if God is fundamentally clean and pure."

Yair Lapid missed this lesson of Epictetus and decided to dip his starched prime minister's suit in the most stinking cesspool bib of local politics.



In a step that can be called "classic Yair Lapidism", Prime Minister Yair Lapid decided to contact the Central Election Commission through the lawyers of the "Yesh Atid" party, with the aim of presenting Channel 14 as an "active body in the elections".

According to the petition, the channel "cynically exploits the title 'press' for the benefit of blatant propaganda, and the cover of the special issue of media for the benefit of distinct political activity."

Channel 14 is not a "right-wing" or "conservative" channel.

Channel 14 is a Bibisti channel.

A channel whose entire essence is to harm Netanyahu's opponents (whether on the right or the left) and to glorify the name of the opposition leader, who has earned the nickname "Messenger of God" by the channel's presenters.

Viewing a protest

Yair Lapid's move is anything but smart.

This petition is suitable for small and annoying parties like Meretz, and not for someone who aspires to lead the country

Channel 14 does not resort to rhetorical and manipulative means to support its candidate for Prime Minister, including daily and continuous propaganda against Yair Lapid's character.

The truth is that anyone with eyes in their head sees it.

You don't need to be a trained media commentator to understand that Channel 14 is a mobilized channel.

The few viewers who accidentally come to the channel do not come to be convinced, they are already convinced.

This is protest viewing.

People who are fed up with the traditional media outlets that have been demonized by the Netanyahu family and their mouthpieces for years, and choose a sign to support the supreme leader by watching Binon Magal, Arel Segal, Bardugo, Ricklin, and Co. and Co. And that's perfectly fine.



Yes, there will be enough purist leftists who will shout that it is not proper that a channel that received a license for heritage broadcasts at all uses its screen time to run a candidate for prime minister.

And yes, they may be right.

But whoever wants to be a leader, certainly in a country like Israel, cannot strive to be "righteous", but wise.

And Yair Lapid's move is anything but smart.

This petition is suitable for small and annoying parties like Meretz, and not for someone who aspires to lead the country.



Precisely when he reaches the last line of the election campaign as an incumbent Prime Minister, Lapid had to continue his quiet and state propaganda.

Conduct business as usual.

Do a "prime ministerial campaign" like in the books.

To give a speech at the UN, meet with political leaders, kiss babies and make cute New Year videos on Tiktok. This strange headlong jump into a war against a media that can, and even better, be ignored - does not serve Lapid's state campaign, and presents him as petty and weak. If he Unable to handle a humorous corner in the "Patriots" program, how will he be able to stand up to Iran?

"Netanyahu is God's messenger."

Segal and Ricklin went wild in the Walla studio

Where's the money?

All this, of course, even before we talked about the fact that Lapid himself is the meat of the media.

Four months before he founded "Yesh Atid" he was still hosting "Olap Shishi" on Channel 2 (then still an important news program)

And it would matter if the other media channels were straight as a rule.

Can anyone say with hand on heart that the news broadcasts of channels 11, 12 and 13 have complete objectivity?

Aral Major General Vinon Magal also broadcasts on radio 103FM, Bardogo broadcast until a few months ago in Glatz, should these stations also be marked as bodies active in the elections? All this of course before we talked about the fact that Yair Lapid himself is the meat of the media. Four months ago who founded "Yesh Atid" he still hosted "Olan Shishi" on Channel 2 (then still an important news program).



Three months before he officially announced his entry into politics, a column by Yair Lapid under the title "The Slave Rebellion" took over most of the cover of Yedioth Ahronoth (then still an influential newspaper), and the article took up, in a rare way, the entire opening doublet of the newspaper.

He also made his decision to run for election in the newspaper, with the unforgettable "Where's the Money" column, which returned to him like a boomerang when he was appointed Minister of Finance.

The election slogans of the candidate Lapid have already appeared in the pen of the journalist Yair.

In this sense, you can at least give Lapid the credit, there is no doubt that he has experience in recognizing propaganda channels when he sees them - simply because he starred in them long before Channel 14 went on the air.
