Shama-Hacohen: One News Company Scary and Unacceptable

Chairman Carmel Shama-Hacohen of the Knesset Economics Committee said, Sunday, "The final rejection of Channel 10 television's request to defer payment of its debts is disturbing and alarming but right now there's no other way."

The Likud lawmaker added, "But a situation of [only] one news company is frightening and intolerable and we will not allow it as it depends on the legislature. Monopolies are a bad plague in the economic arena, even more so when it's a monopoly on the news in Israel."
