another one bites the dust

Today was the last day the Yisraeli" newspaper was printed. They have closed their doors.

It seems there have been fights between the owners and the investors, along with possible embezzlement and skimming.

It is a shame because the "Yisraeli" newspaper, aside from being free, was a very good paper. They had tidbits of news that the other outlets don't bother with, and it had right wing leanings, which is rare in the newspaper industry in Israel.

Recently, distribution of the "Yisraeli" has been highly erratic. They have not had the paper at our train station in BS since the beginning of January. At the station in Tel Aviv it has been spotty, some days they had it and some days not.

Oh well, another one bites the dust.

Maybe someone will buy it out and re-open...

  1. Too bad! But then again, perhaps I'll learn more on the bus instead of reading the paper.

  2. I am not sure what the story is - the papers reported that it is clsoing (yesterday was the last day supposedly).
    Today they pritned newspapers though the distribution was minimal..
    The mancal (ceo)(someone I know) was very vague.. he said (in typical Israeli fashion) when I asked him what am I going to do now on the train, "dont worry, it will all be ok.."
