# 2910 This Is News to Me

Q. I usually get my news from a usual Bnei Torah accepted news web site, that many frum people use. Yet recently there was a video posted of a speech given by the Israeli Prime Minister delivered during Shabbos. Is it permitted to view or listen to those news?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion that in principle one would abstain to listen or comment on speeches delivered by leaders that do not necessarily reflect Torah acceptable views. However, if the news item was indeed recorded during Shabbos by a non Shomer Shabbos Jewish news agency, one should preferably refrain from listening to it.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Shlit’a
