JERUSALEM — Sheldon Adelson,
the billionaire casino mogul who is one of the largest donors to Mitt
Romney and the Republican party, has been accused of bringing “ruin” to
Israel’s newspaper industry.
The American owner of the Sands Casino in Las Vegas has poured money
into a free daily newspaper called Yisrael Hayom (Israel Today) that
shows a slavish loyalty to Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu.
