Israel’s Broadcasting Authority was “accused of censoring personal opinions” after calling for radio host Anat Davidov to axe a short weekly segment allowing “three or four speakers” to offer “opinions on current events,” reported.

According to, Journalists Association in Jerusalem chairman Danny Aken said the Broadcasting Authority’s order “runs contrary to pluralism and the expression of a variety of opinions, which Reshet Bet – as a public media medium – is committed to.”

We have written to the broadcasting authority asking what the reasoning was behind this move and will update with any response.
