Likud MK Uzi Landau on Wednesday blamed the media for the drop in his party's power on Tuesday's elections. He specifically mentioned Channel 2 News and the Yediot Aharonot daily for clearly supporting the disengagement plan and for de-legitimizing Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu in the public eye. They committed a targeted killing against Bibi, Landau accused in an Army Radio interview. Landau recommended that the press undergo a process of soul searching following their alleged bias against the right-wing. When asked about the possible merger between the Likud and Avigdor Lieberman's Israel Beiteinu, Landau responded that the national interest now calls for the formation of a united right-wing bloc.
