Going on TV Over Scandal, Sharon Gets Yanked Off Air Apparently Israel has a law against "electioneering" on the public airwaves in the days leading up to an election. When Sharon went on the air to try and fight back against the charges being leveled against him an Israeli judge ruled that he was violating this law and the signal was cut. Even given the obvious conflicts such a law would have in the United States with respect to the 1st amendment, I can't help but think it would be nice if we had something similar here.
