Poll: 81% Against Bill Banning Nationalist Paper


Public opposition is growing to a bill which could ban nationalist newspapers, Yisrael Hayom reported Friday. The poll, conducted by the New Wave Research Institute, demonstrates that the public overwhelmingly supports free speech.

Under the bill, which was proposed in March, the four top free newspapers distributed daily in Israel would be banned from continuing to do so for more than six months. Specific regulations in the bill more or less single out Israel Hayom as the only newspaper which meets the criteria for the ban.
