Prime Minister Naftali Bennett made headlines in the print press this weekend, with interviews appearing in all the major political supplements. These interviews, six in all, with all the country’s press outlets ended up providing a treasure trove of important headlines. Apparently, it was all part of a carefully coordinated campaign. Despite his busy schedule at the height of the omicron wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the prime minister devoted hours upon hours to this weekend media blitz.
In each of these interviews, Bennett made a point of accusing his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu of running a well-oiled propaganda effort intended to tarnish his reputation.
