NPR's Linda Gradstein reports that a feud among Israel's newspaper dynasties took a bizarre twist yesterday with news that a publishing magnate stands accused of plotting to kill his two main competitors. Rafi Pridan, a private investigator serving four years in prison for planting bugs for Ofer Nimrodi, has accused him of plotting to kill publishers Amos Schocken of Haaretz and Arnon Mozes of Yediot Ahronot, the nation's top-selling paper. Nimrodi, publisher of the Maariv daily, has already served time for wire-tapping a rival's phones.
