In the opening monologue of the program "Election Area" of News 13 presented by Ila Hasson yesterday, the title "Face of Evil" appeared on the big screen behind her, below the name of the program.

Next to the prominent headline, the picture of Barakat Abu Essa, who was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of raping the woman in the fence at the weekend, first appeared.

"Good evening, this is what the face of evil looks like, this is what a vile person looks like," Hasson said.

"It was possible to be careful, to say apparently, but the DNA of 20-year-old Barkhat Abu Essa leaves no doubt: he is the one who raped the young woman of her gender. Like an emotionless animal, he also threatened to kill her children with a knife if she took a wheel out of her mouth, and she suffered in silence After initially trying to fight him."

After describing a suspect in a horrific rape - as a rapist, without the required journalistic reservation that he is still a suspect and has not yet been convicted, she moved on to the topic of the case of the retiring head of the Bar Association, Adv. Several sexual harassments in the office or in the area of ​​the office," Hasson said. "Himi asked one of the harassed women not to complain to the police.

The second, we are told, he ignored.

Unfortunately, officials in the bureau tried and are trying to help and obscure it."

Hasson, let's remember, published a testimony about a week ago according to which Hami allegedly committed an indecent act during a video call with a lawyer, to whom he wrote a letter of recommendation for a judge at her request.

Himi claimed that the relationship was consensual for several years, contrary to the lawyer's claim that the things were not done consensually.

Following the investigation, Himi announced that he would resign from his position as head of the Bar Association, and the police announced that they had begun investigating the allegations.

The headline "The face of evil" that accompanied both the rape suspect and Himi provoked many angry reactions on the network against Hasson and News 13, including Haaretz journalist Uri Mashgav who wrote: "The face of evil in my view is to use the daily propaganda program to compare the rape suspect in Gedra to Abi Himi, who ran A prolonged consensual affair. Ila Hasson, her employers and everyone who took part in this vile act are complicit in the crime."

It was also written, among other things: "Disgrace", "They lost it completely" and "It's not really Channel 13. It's Channel 14".
