Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi slams the public broadcaster Kan for what he calls its misleading coverage of the government’s plans to overhaul the justice system.

In letter, Karhi accuses Kan of being “conspicuously biased” in its coverage of the controversy, pointing in particular to it calling the government’s plan the “weakening” of the judicial system.

Karhi, who has threatened to shut down or drastically cut Kan’s budget, writes that the public broadcaster is “not giving a platform to significant portions of the public who want to hear a different voice” and not “serving the general population.”
