President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that he sees the struggle for the future of Channel 10 as a struggle for the democratic character of Israel.

During a meeting with the heads of Channel 10, which is in danger of closing, the president said: "Democracy is expensive, but the closure of the channel will be social bankruptcy...it's not just the livelihood of 3,000 people that it will hurt, it will weaken the entire media."
