Mickey Miro, the CEO of Kol Yisrael Radio told law students in Hod HaSharon’s Shaare Mishpat Law School “The chareidim will always be portrayed as bloodsuckers who do not do anything. Miro was addressing a class in “Social Theory and Practice, Society and Law.”
He told the class that he believes the chareidim are working hard to uplift themselves but are being met with opposition. He goes on by explaining the chareidi tzibur has been delegitimized by the tzibur at large and the media. “It is easy to delegitimize. One takes a marginalized community and buries it. Having MKs does not help them”.
He went on to attack the media, questioning how much is reported on the vast gemachim and chessed organizations – only the “chareidim as bloodsuckers”.
He stressed the importance of honest and fair reporting in the media.
