This week on the Tribal Update, the weekly satirical newscast produced by Latma, the Hebrew-language, satirical media criticism website I run, we bring you and interview with Egyptian Field Marshal Tantawi, the head of the ruling military junta who our intrepid reporters tracked down during last weekend’s mob assault on the Israeli embassy in Cairo.
We also bring you a Turkish naval captain discussing Turkey’s plans to destroy Israel.
This past week the Israeli media scene was rocked by Channel 10s broadcast of an apology to Sheldon Adelson for a completely bogus “investigative report” the station ran on him in January. The apology spurred howls of protest from our media elites claiming that it meant that their right to free speech is being stifled by rich people.
We interview Channel 10s celebrity victim “Shai Tohar” to describe the crisis.
And there is much, much more.
Also – many of you have emailed me asking about our regular anchorwoman Ronit Avramov-Shapira. Well, Ronit gave birth to a healthy baby daughter on Tuesday.
Enjoy the show!
