After Facebook jab, journalists fire back at PM: We are doing our duty

The country’s diplomatic reporters took umbrage Wednesday at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s complaint that his recent trip to Russia was not sufficiently covered by the media, writing in a letter to his spokesman that this claim would be amusing were it not “flagrant incitement” against journalists and the principle of a free press.

Netanyahu, in a Facebook post that was accompanied by a video, charged that the “majority of the Israeli press ignored the historic visit that I made to Russia to mark 25 years to the renewal of ties.”

Netanyahu said that it was a “moving visit full of significant achievements.”
