Israeli parties, who have been preparing their party lists for the elections in February, have nominated the largest-ever number of ex-journalists to list ranks from which they may be elected.
One journalist on the Labor list, Shelly Yachimovich, says that journalism prepares people for politics far better than does academia or the army.
There is a caution in order, however:
Former Davar editor Danny Bloch, for instance, believes there ought to be a cooling off period for journalists entering politics. Otherwise, he warned, readers will begin suspecting that journalists’ coverage of political parties is influenced by their desire to secure a safe slot on a given party’s slate.
