Adelson's Nationalist Daily Number Two in the Country


The Israel Today free daily commuter newspaper, published by American billionaire Sheldon Adelson, is the most widely read newspaper in the country after Yediot Acharonot, according to a TIG survey reported by Globes. Adelson launched the daily last year after failing to reach an agreement to purchase the failing Ma'ariv newspaper.

Israel Today is markedly different from other Israeli dailies because it takes a consistent nationalist stand. Adelson is known to be a strong supporter of Likud chairman Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu and has expressed fears of growing dominance of Muslim terror.
