Hail the year and its curses.
After 11 monthly sections, it's time to summarize the embarrassing moments of the entire year 2017 - a dubious parade that is not fun to do, full of moments that are not fun to remember.
Each year always seems worse than the previous ones. It's a matter of perspective. Still, you can say that About the year 2005 in Israeli culture: not only was it unhappy in its own way, but it was more unhappy than others.
The frustration, violence and hatred that had accumulated here in recent years erupted in an ugly way.
It was a vulgar and aggressive year, in a way that really took away the desire to leave the house.
True, Andy Warhol already coined the term "15 seconds of fame" many years ago, and there is nothing new about it.
And yet: this year, more than ever, most of the noise will be generated by transient phenomena, which are hard to believe will have any long-term effect.
In fact, it is hard to even believe that we will remember them until next year.
Either way, before PFG enters our lives and we begin the countdown - here are the 22 most embarrassing moments of the past year, and a heartfelt apology to anyone who was left out.
Only a few months after leaving her position, one of the most important and sensitive trusted servants in the region, Shmarit Meir washes all the dirty laundry outside, in an unprecedented and strange way that also has a hint of megalomania

Only a few months after she finished her work at "Haaretz" due to abuse of her employees and facts, "Globes" hires the services of Lisa Peretz.
The result is a slightly awkward culture supplement

Essi Ezer was sent to interview one of the most important musicians of our generation, who wrote the theme song for one of the biggest movie series in the history of commercial cinema and wastes it on an awkward interview that makes her yawn and us cringe in embarrassment (wait, we'll get back to Essi Ezer unfortunately)
is not that a loss?

Michal Aharoni, Shlomi Elder's partner, claims that Ila Hasson verbally attacked her in the newsroom of News 13. Amnon Levy, Hasson's colleague, tweets the response "We saw. A beast", then deletes the tweet and claims that he meant something else altogether.
Anyway: sounds like a fun news system to be on
The change server.

Avery Gilad is trying something new with a puzzling evening show called "Medd Israel".

The experiment failed.

The investigation "Pegasus" by the newspaper "Calcalist" appears to be a favorite for the Sokolov Prize, and presents itself with the pomposity of Pulitzer winners, until it turns out that it is apparently one of the biggest journalistic ducks that have been here recently
The duck of the year, if not the decade.

A complex year in the world of concerts.
On the one hand, this is the only area of local culture that has recovered from the corona - and by and large.
On the other hand, this year was full of exorbitant ticket prices, and worse - violent riots at the entrance to festivals and during the performances themselves

Even though she doesn't even tickle the block percentage, Hadar, a crowned "young woman on fire," is becoming the big story of the 2022 election. It could be refreshing, if her story didn't consist mostly of endless and meaningless screaming, a lot of missing details in her backstory, and zero real impact
Volume: one hundred.
