Labor leadership candidate MK Amir Peretz slammed unnamed sources from within and outside the media for using news sources to discredit his constituencies and sully his reputation, Channel 10 reported Thursday.
Speaking at a press conference with Union of Local Authorities in Israel chief Shlomo Bohbut, who endorsed Peretz after dropping out of the leadership race last week, Peretz said investigative reports that claimed he had fraudulently mustered voters were irresponsibly done.
"Knowing that newspapers like to use the word 'research' I checked these investigative reports," Peretz said, adding "To me it's distortion and using only half the truth is worse than outright lying."
