PM shouldn’t nix interview – ex-Channel 2 head

Former director general of Channel 2 news Shalom Kittal criticized Netanyahu’s decision not to do an interview with Channel 10 journalist Raviv Drucker.

“What Netanyahu is doing is wrong in my opinion,” Kittal is quoted by Ynet as saying. “He is not the first to boycott specific journalists but it’s a shame he took this position. I think an interview with a sharp and quick-witted interviewer would do him better than avoiding such an interview.”

Kittal defended the decision of Channels 1 and 2 to air their interviews with Netanyahu despite his refusal to speak on Channel 10. “There is no option but to run the interview for other channels. The main factor we should address, with all due respect to solidarity with Channel 10, is the public interest [in the interview].”
