On the day that Israel launched the newest prototype of the launch vehicle for its Jericho III missile, Channel 10’s Tzinor Layla interviewed me. There was a gag on reporting the exact nature of the missile that was launched. But as long as a foreign reporter said it, it was OK for the Israeli censor. We’re sometimes very useful in that way. To this day, the New York Times and its “ground-breaking” Israel bureau still insist on reporting only that a “missile” was launched, despite the fact that both AP and my own Israeli source have reported that it was a Jericho III. Ground-breaking indeed.
