PM pans reporter who called son a ‘shithead’

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu excoriates Channel 12 reporter Dana Weiss for a video she posted last night on Twitter of the premier’s son Yair boarding the premier’s plane to Washington, which she was also on, during which she calls him a “shithead” and a “zero.”

“Imagine what would happen if a right-wing journalist spoke about Lapid or Gantz’s son,” Netanyahu writes on Twitter. “The mask has been removed and it turns out that the ‘objective media’ is nothing more than left-wing propaganda, the same media that promotes the despicable blood libel against me (spread by) Lapid and Gantz.”

Weiss posted on Twitter after landing that she realized that the video had been inappropriate, apologized, and took it down.
