Nationalist leaders’ failure to prevent violence by right-wing extremists has kept ‘settlers in the eye of the camera,” Channel 2 television’s senior correspondent Udi Segal told Arutz Sheva TV at a conference he attended in the Judean Gush Etzion region, south of Jerusalem.

Segal said, “The cameras are attracted to the radical actions" and maintained that the media is not slanted to the left. He declared that the Israeli media acts according to what he defined as "the Israeli mainstream," which he said supports the establishment of a Palestinian state.
