Israel's Netanyahu Takes Aim at Media in Webcast

Israel's Netanyahu Takes Aim at Media in Webcast

Sunday, 03 February 2019 10:38 AM EST

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced the launch of a new weekly webcast to "get rid of the fake from the news" ahead of national elections in April.

In a video shared on social media Saturday, Netanyahu told a host that the webcast will "only cover the reality, and I will continue to ensure that it will be positive." It's set to launch Sunday on Netanyahu's Likud party Facebook page.

The prime minister appears to be modeling the idea off President Donald Trump's "Real News Update," a weekly webcast on Facebook hosted by the president's daughter-in-law to counterbalance what the administration deems an oppositional media.

The tongue-in-cheek clip makes dismissive references to the police investigations into alleged corruption by the prime minister. Netanyahu says the media is against him.
