The Tribal Update hosts Obama advisor and previews “Brainwashed”

This week’s Tribal Update from Latma, the Hebrew, language media satire website I edit needs a bit of explanation for foreign audiences. 


The first gag, with John Indenial, Obama’s advisor for reality perception is self-explanatory.


The second gag is a promo. It is a spoof on Israel Channel 2’s newest drama series “Hatufim” or “Kidnapped.” The plot revolves around recently freed Israeli hostages who were held in captivity for 15 years. In our version, the Hebrew word “Hatufim” is replaced with the word “Shtufim,” or “Brainwashed.”


Some of the newsbriefs are a bit of inside baseball – or basketball —  as the case may be.


At any rate, enjoy!
