Israel Newspaper Staffs Go On Strike

Israeli newspapers have been taking a hit lately. Many blame it on the introduction of Yisrael Hayom. Others say it is because news is going digital.

Employees of Haaretz have gone on an open-ended strike, while Maariv employees are burning tires outside their office building, due to the anticipated firing of nearly 2000 people in Maariv, as well as anticipated staff staff cutbacks at Haaretz.

This comes in addition, according to a report on Galei Tzahal, of staff firings that have already begun in the recent days at Globes, Yediot, and others.

The strike was timed to coincide with a special Directors meeting at Haaretz.

Some of the striking newspaper staff are demanding that the government bail out the newspapers, because of their “important role in safeguarding Israeli democracy.”

In addition, there are new difficulties in the Makor Rishon acquisition of Maariv.  Maariv may be in more debt than previously disclosed, and it’s sales projections are less than were previously estimated placing the deal in a precarious position. Shlomo Ben-Zvi is reportedly working on renegotiating the deal.

    The leftist media has failed because they do not understand business. Give the public what they want. Do not print a paper to satisfy, only the leftist ownership. The government has no business salvaging your stupidity.

  2. Yeremiahu Rueben Yonteff says:

    Waah, now all the self hating jews will have learn arabic and watch al-jazeera to get thier news.

  3. Good riddance to these Leftist morons. We're sick of our crap media, worse than PRAVDA from the ex-Soviet Union. The day Haaretz goes out of business should be declared a holiday.
