Ha'aretz announces:

Leonid Nevzlin, chairman of the board of trustees at Beit Hatfutsot - the Museum of the Jewish People - is joining Ha'aretz as a partner and will acquire 20 percent of the company's share capital valued at NIS 700 million after the money [sic]. All the funds will go into the company.

Nevzlin will join the firm's board of directors. After the investment the Schocken family will hold a 60 percent stake and the publishing company DuMont Schauberg of Cologne, Germany, will hold 20 percent.

CAMERA wishes Nevzlin much success in his new position, and hopes that his presence at the company will help strengthen the paper's new signs of accountability.

The bad news is, that article says Leonid Nevzlin is wanted in Russia for serious legal problems.

The good news is, he's someone different, and Haaretz can't get any worse. I wish this guy would fire Gideon Levy, Amira Hass and Bradley Burston and replace them with real journalists who don't write for the sole purpose of demonizing Israel like they do.

I don’t like much of what Bradly Burston says. But I wouldn’t group him with Amira Hass and Gideon Levy.
