New Bill Would Limit "Israel Hayom" Newspaper


A new bill calls for limiting the distribution of free newspapers, which would significantly affect Israel Hayom. The newspaper editors state that "Israel Hayom was founded on the belief that the Israeli public deserves better, more balanced and more accurate journalism. Journalism that speaks, not shouts. Journalism of a different kind. And free of charge." Begun in 2007, the paper has a significant readership, beating out many long-running newspapers.
