New transcript shows PM, publisher hashing out how many copies of free daily allowed

Channel 2 news has published new snippets from recordings between Netanyahu and Yedioth publisher Mozes, during which the two talk about reducing the number of copies of free daily Israel Hayom.

“It won’t drop totally, it’s won’t drop three-thirds. It’ll drop to two-thirds,” Netanyahu is quoted saying.

“When we spoke about numbers, there were 275,000 copies. Now there’s 325,000. You understand why all the time that’s passing creates a problem? We’re getting back to a problem that we’re trying to defer and it’s harder to solve,” Mozes answers.

After that, Mozes asks to discuss the amount of ads Israel Hayom gets. When Netanyahu objects that he can’t determine that for them, Mozes explains that most of their ads come from the government.

When the two agree to deal with that later, Mozes suggests restricting Israel Hayom’s distribution area.

“We’re trying to do something here together,” Mozes says twice.
