Channel 2 published on Friday night new quotations from the conversations between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes.
The transcript as released follows:
Arnon Mozes: What's the bottom line? How can it be done quickly?
Benjamin Netanyahu: It can be legislated. I wanted to talk with the ginger (Sheldon Adelson); he's going to be in the country in another two weeks.
AM: One needs to see how something can be done that he'll be able to live with. Maybe make another law. I want to make things easier. I'm not looking to make things harder.
AM: On the subject of the quantities that we discussed. Make it a compromise with him. I'm saying this from a good place, not from a bad place.
BN: I think that it'll be okay with him, but…
AM: One needs another law that would bypass the problem.
BN: Somebody has to come up with a proposal. I've already spoken with someone.
AM: With Yariv (Minister Yariv Levin).
BN: Not with Yariv.
AM: Bring whomever you want. It's not my business. Eitan Cabel needs to come and your person in the Knesset.
BN: And that Eitan should say that I want to reach a compromise. Maybe we'll convince him (Cabel). To come off a sweeping law.
AM: Which Knesset committee is it going to?
BN: We'll set up a special committee.
The above interchange was said regarding the possibility of legislating a law against Yisrael Hayom in exchange for sympathetic coverage
