The High Journalistic Quality of Israel's Press

While Mr Sarkozy’s words were lauded over by the local Israeli press, images of his glamorous wife dominated the media.

“Queen Carla” has arrived, said the headline on Israel’s largest daily, Yediot Ahronot. Inside was a two-page spread with a discussion of her $2,500 Prada dress and $1,200 hand purse. Mr Sarkozy’s diplomatic mission was included in a sidebar of the page.

In the left-leaning Haaretz newspaper, an enlarged image of Mrs Bruni Sarkozy topped the front page, with her husband and the Israeli prime minister appear off-hand in the background.
