Udi Segal, in a segment from the main edition of News 13, addresses Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu following the coup, March 13, 2023 (News 13)
13 news anchor Udi Segal answers Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who today (Monday) at the beginning of the Likud faction meeting accused the media of mobilizing in favor of the opponents of the reform in the judicial system.
Netanyahu claimed that this is a left-wing media making propaganda.
"The propaganda channels are trying to prevent the opposition from sitting down and talking with us to reach agreements," he said.
In response, Udi Segal answered him live on the edition: "Mr. Prime Minister, it's been hard to take you seriously for a long time. Sometimes you get confused and not always accurate, and you have no problem tweeting not only about what we say, but also about what the Chiefs of Staff say, Heads of institutions, senior officials, economists, political science experts.
You are not calculating for anyone, and certainly not for public money which you spend very easily.
Still, we decided to address the fact that you accused us of propaganda because we call the moves you are making a 'regime coup'.
"It's not because we don't like it, we're afraid of it. We're not basing it on the deadness of our hearts, but on the statements of hundreds of researchers and political scientists. They count 124 laws that your coalition submitted, which change the rules of the game, which give your coalition complete control over the PA the judge and the appointment of judges, not only in the Knesset and the government. This is a coup d'état. You mention one column, according to which Israel will continue to be democratic even if the reform passes, but in front of it are hundreds of articles that warn of what may happen. To take one position, and which you claim is not mentioned. This is propaganda "
And who do you want us to dream about?
To the channel that recently stated that the CIA is involved in protests against the legal revolution, or to your son who tweeted that the police rebelled against the government?
Mr. Prime Minister, maybe you should first check what is happening in your immediate environment, what is happening in your home.
When you confront these statements with the facts, we can take you seriously.
Until then, as long as we are a democratic country, our job is to report and criticize the government."
