Channel 14 television isn’t a stellar example of good journalism, to say the least. Nevertheless, there is no justification for the Yesh Atid party’s petition to the Central Elections Committee. Yesh Atid asked the committee to deem the broadcaster and its owner, billionaire Yitzhak Mirilashvili, “organizations active in the election” that should be required to flag their programming as campaign advertising. Yesh Atid said the petition doesn’t seek to influence the channel’s content or halt its broadcasts, merely to have it labeled “openly and transparently, so that even (those few) people who watch Channel 14 will know they’re watching campaign advertising in a way that upholds the fundamental principles of the campaign advertising and finance laws – equality, transparency, the integrity of the elections and the ability to form political opinions based on reliable information.”
