Israel: The only country in the world where journalists openly admit their bias

Journalist Yechimovitch: I Was Never Objective and Always Had an Agenda

(IsraelNN.com) "I was never an objective journalists, I have an agenda and I want to have influence." So said state-run radio journalist Shelly Yechimovitch on Army Radio Tuesday morning.

Yechimovitch added that the Labor Party is the only alternative to the political and economic policies of the extreme-right.

Listeners have long complained of strong left-wing bias in Yechimovitch's reporting, but she continued to be employed by state-run media for years.
