It was releveled today (Sunday) that Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon (Noni) Mozes is the businessman who allegedly discussed with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu striking a deal that would benefit both parties. Yedioth Ahronoth is the Israeli newspaper that owns and operates Ynetnews. According to Channel 2 News, the two met a while ago and discussed a deal that would harm Yedioth Ahronoth’s rival Israel Hayom in exchange for positive coverage of Netanyahu. The deal between the two was supposed to be very profitable for Mozes.

The alleged deal between the two was supposed to harm the distribution or possibly bring about the discontinuation of Israel Hayom’s weekend edition newspaper in exchange for positive coverage of Netanyahu in Yedioth Ahronoth. The discussion between the two was recorded. It was also reported that the recording stands at the center of the corruption investigation being conducted into Netanyahu.

This morning, Netanyahu commented on the investigation against him: “What I can tell you guys today is that I know what this is about and I’m telling you with full confidence: nothing will come up because there’s nothing.”
