Lieberman on Media, Abbas: Nothing is Real

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman called on journalists, Sunday, to reflect the facts in their coverage of the news. Addressing a gathering of deputy mayors, the chairman of the Yisrael Beitenu party said it was important for him to go to their event rather than the Eilat Journalists' Conference. Exclaiming "Nothing is real," he said that what came out of reporters' mouths did not reflect reality, either during the news conference when he and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced their parties' joint Knesset list or during the Likud meeting that approved the joint list.
