An arbitrator has denied a claim from a major Canadian media company that said it was entitled to acquire a 50 percent interest in The Jerusalem Post. CanWest Global Communications Corp. announced Friday that a New York-based arbitrator had ruled against it in its dispute with Mirkaei Tikshoret Group, an Israel-based media company.
