Israel Today ends Yediot Ahronot monopoly

In 1995 Yediot Ahronot was declared a monopoly in the Israeli Hebrew newspaper market because it had a market share of more than 50%. By then Ma’ariv had a share of 25%, Ha’aretz of 10%.

Since the advance of free dailies in Israel the shares have changed. Free daily Israel Today, owned by US casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, has a circulation of 255,000, which lowers the share of Yediot Ahronot that filed a request with the Israel Antitrust Authority to revoke its classification as a monopoly in the media sector.
