Channel 10’s “Hamakor” program, which caused headaches for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with reports two months ago about his travels abroad, has a new target in its show planned for Wednesday: opposition leader Tzipi Livni.
The show’s host, Channel 10 senior analyst Raviv Drucker, said the program would run an investigative report on Kadima’s operations.

The report is expected to include information and documents about appointments in the party of activists and vote contractors who helped Livni win the Kadima leadership race against MK Shaul Mofaz over two years ago.
Kadima activist website Yalla Kadima reported that party officials gave investigators lists of salaried workers in the party and their connections to Livni when she was a candidate.
“The program will compare Livni’s promises of clean politics with the reality of political patronage positions and vote contractors,” the site said.
Kadima officials responded that they do not reply to reports by Yalla Kadima, which they said often writes disparaging reports about Livni.
The officials promised that by the time the report broadcasts, the investigators will find that “the reality has less headlines than Channel 10’s promos.”
Drucker is responsible for investigative reports that have raised controversy for leading politicians across the political spectrum, including Netanyahu and former prime ministers Ariel Sharon and Ehud Barak. Netanyahu is currently suing Drucker for libel for his reports on the prime minister’s travels.
