MK Eitan Cabel pledges to fight any attempt to politicize or destroy public broadcasting

Labor Party MK Eitan Cabel, chairman of the Knesset Economics Committee, on Monday pledged to fight any attempt to politicize or destroy public broadcasting.t Cabel was among those legislators who supported the drastic reforms to the Israel Broadcasting Authority that were proposed by Gilad Erdan during his term as Communications Minister, and helped pass them into law when they were voted on a year ago.

But it was not Cabel’s intention to penalize IBA employees or to put an end to public broadcasting. What Cabel wanted was to remove all political pressures and influence from public broadcasting, and because he was familiar with the mismanagement of the IBA, he voted in favor of the establishment of a new cost efficient public broadcasting entity.
