Last night I watched the Israeli Channel Two News. The good news was that they announced that the IDF has had a major lead in tracking down and G-d willing releasing the three kidnapped teenagers, Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrah and Naftali Fraenkel, from the Arab terrorists, because they know who are the terrorist masterminds of the crime.

The bad news is that since the media had this information for days, they had prepared a terribly sympathetic, humanizing piece about them featuring one of the wives, who looked young, beautiful and innocent crying that she didn’t believe her husband was guilty. I wasn’t quick enough to get my camera out to shoot her, but I did catch the interview with the father, who, no surprise, firmly denied that his darling son could be involved. Apparently, according to what was said, the news media has known this for days and cooperated with military censorship. They didn’t publicize the news, but they did prepare the clip to be ready the moment the IDF let the information out.
