A young woman who makes her living from making documentary films took advantage of her connections and managed to make a film about life in Olmert's inner circle. Apparently some years ago she worked for him, so he trusted her to give a fair portrayal. And indeed, there is nothing in this article to suggest she didn't. However, she had the bad luck to complete the production just at a moment when no self respecting journalist or editor of any sort of media outlet could afford to say anything favorable about Olmert. So her film was deleted from the program.
It's so reassuring to know that our media places self regulation above giving us citizens raw information that might confuse us. That they keep track of the plot line, the good guys and the bad guys, and try not to let us mix them up.
Another group who are also protecting us from unnecessary confusion is the State Prosecution. According to the front page of Maariv this morning, Olmert cannot give interviews these days because the prosecution has warned him that this could be construed as obstruction of a criminal investigation, since inevitably any interviewer would ask him about all those bad things he has done, and by responding he would be cuing his fellow conspirators about his line of defense, assuming of course that his fellow conspirators follow the media.
As I've consistently said so far, I don't know if Olmert is or isn't a crook. What I do know is that the process is a travesty of justice.
