Channel 10’s program The Source has apologized to businessman Moshe Bublil and
the Club Hotel Group over a trailer aired in October 2010 that Bublil said
Reporters Raviv Druker and Mickey Rosenthal made the
apology on air Tuesday night, fulfilling the ruling made by Tel Aviv District
Court Judge Yehudit Shevah in response to Bublil’s lawsuit against the
MKs propose Channel 10 produce original content
“In the event that the trailer indicated otherwise, we want to
emphasize that Mr. Bublil and the Club Hotel Group acted with
transparency and in accordance with the law, and that there were no faults or
misdemeanors in their conduct whatsoever,” Druker and Rosenthal
According to Bublil’s lawsuit, the trailer asked: “Moshe Bublil
made millions from gambling – but was that money made at the expense of the
state?” – a reference to a NIS 67 million government grant Bublil had received
to build Club Hotel Eilat.
In the lawsuit, Bublil said the statements
made in the trailer were baseless. Lawyers for Bublil and the Club Hotel Group
said the show’s producers had chosen to ignore facts presented to them and had
aired a biased trailer defaming Bublil and his companies.
