      Bennett Names 'Hot Mic' UN Interpreter as His Person of the Year


      Economy Minister and Jewish Home chairman Naftali Bennett was placed on Wednesday in the #2 spot on Channel 2’s “Politicians of the Year” list for 2013.

      Bennett, who followed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu who topped the list, was asked in turn to choose his person of the year for 2013. He chose the interpreters, particularly the United Nations interpreter who, not realizing her microphone was on, noted that the incessant emphasis on condemning Israel - for crimes real or alleged - is uncalled for and excessive.
