Public broadcasting that is totally dependent on the state budget is more vulnerable to political influence, according to the European Broadcasting Union which has condemned the decision taken by the Israeli cabinet on Sunday to close the Israel Broadcasting Authority within a year.

The EBU has expressed grave concern over the impending closure and the decision to establish another entity in its place, EBU Director General Ingrid Deltenre declared on learning of the decision.

The IBA which has been a member of the EBU for 57 years, has been in consultation with this powerful umbrella organization ever since Communications Minister Gilad Erdan made public his intention to dismantle the IBA instead of acting in accordance with previously signed agreements.
