Yair Lapid, son of Shinu party leader, to enter politics

Journalist Yair Lapid appeared to throw his hat into the political ring for the next Knesset election on Tuesday night when he spoke at a rally of more than 300 supporters at the Herzliya Air Force House that was open to the public but closed to the press.
According to Israel Radio political correspondent Yoav Krakovsky, who broke the story, the 250-seat auditorium was full and a spillover crowd watched Lapid speak on a screen in another room.
Lapid currently anchors Channel 2’s Friday night news magazine Yoman and writes the lead column in Yediot Aharonot’s Friday magazine.
