It seems that the new editions in the case of gang rape at a hotel in Eilat have learned lessons from the media hinge they have raised around the Ayia Napa affair.

    At the end of a day of chilling reports, it was the turn of the major editions to cover the horror: suspicion of raping a 16-year-old girl by 30 men in a hotel in Eilat. This time, perhaps because it is not in Cyprus but in the Holy Land and perhaps because the victim is "ours", the presenters treated the issue with the required sensitivity. And perhaps - one can only hope - it is not the location and the Jewish blood that make the difference, but a real lesson learned from the media circus surrounding the rape case in Cyprus.

    In the story of Cyprus, to remind you, the main channels made sure to weave in their reports superlatives for the boys, their good families and the promising background from which they came. At the same time, other journalists stunned with jokes at the expense of the alleged rapist and allusions to the promiscuity of British women. Roni Daniel starred in the shameful coverage center at the time, but he was not there alone - the other reporters returned him with winks, and the atmosphere of a bachelor party prevailed throughout. It is quite absurd to think that this lemon Eskimo demonstration appeared in the Israeli media this year, in what is known as the "tribal bonfire", but it did happen - and the network was furious accordingly.

    Whether the broadcasters mistakenly recognized or the stars managed on their own, this time things look different. Instead of Doron Herman, who spoke at the time about the military future of the boys in Cyprus, News 13 sent two women and a serious man into the field. Ariela Sternbach in the bloody arena in Eilat, Mia Aidan in Habima Square in Tel Aviv (where a demonstration of support for the girl took place last night) and Almog Boker at the Ashkelon police station - a gender balance is required to cover such a horrific case.

    This time the coverage in the girl's version opens. "I feel like a lot of people are behind me and it strengthens me a lot… No one knows what I went through, so how do you pass criticism?", Almog Boker quoted her as saying. "The next day, one of the young men approached me and told me - there are videos, and asked me if I wanted him to send it to me. I could not handle it." How important it is to hear this horrible voice, which has been violently silenced for an unknown time. How necessary it is to present this voice before all the external reports, defenses and suspicious versions.

    A variety of worthy voices were brought to the article, including that of Eva Madjibouz, director general of the Authority for the Advancement of Women. The local sector, including an Eilat taxi driver and young men vacationing at the hotel, also felt honored by the tragedy. Similar things have been said here, too, and here we have learned that we are fine without them, and not every opinion has to be heard in prime time.When dealing with such a sensitive subject, which scratches the wounds of so many viewers, many words are better left on the editorial floor. Of murder - of everything that is worst of all. In fact, why should one always explain in images why rape is bad? In the coverage of rape as in the coverage of rape.

    The tribal edition also sounds completely different from that of a year ago. "How such a horror occurs in a hotel and even "Doesn't one stop her?", Yonit began. "Here, according to the suspicion, one of the most difficult and shocking rape cases of the other years took place," continued Barhanu Tagania from the field. News 12 also shows investment and thought. hotel pearl Maman, which, frankly, incomprehensible Jumping on business unwillingly became the scene of the incident.

    In any case, if possible To pronounce the word "good" in the context of such a case, it is good to hear this time the word "horror" for its variety of inflections. Because that's exactly what it's about, just in case someone gets confused.
