Lapid walks back his attack on new editor of ‘Haaretz’

Yesh Atid leader and former journalist Yair Lapid has been forced to eat humble pie following a vicious Facebook attack that he launched against Noa Landau, the newly- appointed editor of the English edition of Haaretz.

Landau, who has a 15-year record in journalism, and has worked inter alia for Maariv and Channel 10, was the first woman to head the Haaretz News Department in the 98-year-old newspaper’s history after filling several other editorial roles.

The announcement last Thursday that she will replace Charlotte Hallé, who after nine years as editor is taking up the newly-created position of international director, caused Lapid to come close to having an apoplectic fit.
