It turns out not always shouting: Ayala Hassan's human gesture to Ayman Odeh
Ayala Hasson was able to hold a substantive discussion with the chairman of the joint list and even ask him a question in Arabic, a sixth studio preferred the gossip about the death of her lead than to engage in cultural heroism, and the interviews with Gantz were boring

1. Ayala Hasson was honored at the Central Staff Studio by the co-chair, Ayman Odeh, in a discussion that managed to be relevant even without the screams that often characterize interviews during an election period. A big headline did not come out, but one interesting moment indeed: Hasson referred another question to her in Arabic On the percentage of voting, as a rare gesture in interviews with Arab Knesset members, saying: Even if we disagree, we can have a conversation where the two sides respect each other. If that sounds trivial, it's only because we've already forgotten how in the same studio Gera Rina succeeds in the same She was just a few months ago when he said a sentence in the primary language of about a fifth of Israeli citizens.
2. Twenty years have passed since the premature death of singer Ofra Haza, and on Friday, Jonathan Rieger was sent to address the issue. The culture reporter quickly surveyed several major stations in the singer's career, met Izhar Ashdot and Yair Nitzani who worked on her successful remixes, found the man who worked with her on her latest songs, and, as expected, devoted a good deal to her death. It's not that other things were completely neglected, nor did Riger try to pack all of Chest's story into a legitimate story, but the emphasis given to her personal life and death is a disappointing symptom of a collective - one should say - a bit superficial in the heroine's story.
Although, the death of her chest was a national trauma, it is true. But he is completely not what defines one of the most beloved and successful singers here, nor why it is still such a significant symbol of Israeli pop, an icon of Yemenite Jewish heritage and the voice of the Hope neighborhood. Riger missed an opportunity to give her work a requested cultural context, explaining how important, groundbreaking and unique it is, and a reference that Israeli culture has repeatedly come to - something far more important than whether she had novels or if she knew what she was sick of. Missing the preoccupation with the meaning of the bust is a missed opportunity in the story that there is still much to dig into.More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS

3. Blue and White Chairman Benny Gantz was interviewed for several media outlets at the same time last night, including Walla! NEWS. The intense media blitz was intended to differentiate him from Netanyahu, who, for a change, was prepared to face reporters and answer tough questions. 12 and 13, Gantz seems to have nothing unusual or new to say about any of the issues on the agenda, and the boring result was not precisely because of the interviews, which did not make him easy life. No rabbit was removed from the hat, in any matter, but only the messages Expected, if in News 13, at some point in an interview with Hila Korach chose the dreary headlines "Supports Sharp Dose Right" and "Victory for Victory, Glad I Came" And the corporation then simply settled on "Gantz Talk," while the interview with Dana Weiss in 12 what will probably be remembered is the confusion between Dana and Daphne. It's quite clear that Gantz's TV blitz has become another dull station within a drowsy election campaign asleep.
4. The day after the story about Ofra Haza in a studio on Friday, the sad affair surrounding poet Nathan Zach reached Network 13. I did not determine which of the two sides - Zach's wife or friends - was right and who was doing more injustice here, but I left with a sad feeling about this Another reason, somewhat similar to the same frustration from the story on her chest: It's a shame the editions deal with you, and in literature in general, almost only when scandals are associated with them. The media has a role to play in creating a meaningful discussion of culture as part of the agenda, not only when filmmakers are caught in the mouths, getting into legal disputes or, peacefully, fighting for their lives in hospitals. This is important if we believe that we deserve, too, to quote a line from a song, a place where you can still breathe.
