Israel's most pressing issue, according to the paper, is not the fact that police have now confirmed that Netanyahu is under suspicion for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two cases, but is instead the economic woes of a large Israeli pharmaceutical company, Teva.
The paper published a small bulletin about the developments in the cases against Netanyahu at the bottom of the front page, with the full-length feature only appearing on page seven.
The remaining main Hebrew-language dailies, Yedioth Ahronoth, Maariv's weekend paper, and of course, Haaretz, all agreed that the news on Netanyahu was clearly the country's most important issue.
