Adelson’s Newspaper Downplays Romney’s Visit

Romney dominates the local press.But “Israel Today” appears careful not to seem too far in the tank for the publishers’ guy.

TEL AVIV — Yisrael HaYom (Israel Today), the right-leaning newspaper owned by billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, downplayed Mitt Romney’s visit to Israel in its Monday edition, compared to its peers.

The paper, which is universally seen as pro-Netanyahu and pro-Romney paper, only devoted a front page teaser to the former Massachusetts governor’s visit with the headline “Friend in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.”

The paper’s lede was focused on more local issues — newly announced nation-wide tax hikes.

By contrast, Romney’s visit received dominant placement in the English and Hebrew editions of Haaretz, The Jerusalem Post, and the tabloid Maariv.
