Israel's free media?

Here's an interesting spat between an Arab member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset), Jamal Zahalka and veteran Israeli reporter, Dan Margalit. It's unpleasant viewing but the MK manages to expose the racism and bias of the Israeli media and the history of the zionist project in a short space of time:

And here is how the Jerusalem Post covered the interview.
On Thursday, Zahalka was removed from the set of the program after he and Margalit engaged in heated verbal sparring after Zahalka accused Defense Minister Ehud Barak of listening to classical music while children were being killed in Gaza.
I can see why Margalit would be angry. I mean fancy drawing attention to Barak's penchant for classical music when he's so heroic in Gaza.
