It’s finally happened. New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan reported on her blog that “many readers…wrote to object to an [April 2] article…on the breakdown in peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians,” claiming “[they] found the headline misleading and the article itself lacking in context.” Ms. Sullivan provided one such letter, quoted the […]

Middle East Reassessment

Posted on: April 9th, 2014

The issue of affordable infertility treatment has long been one of particular importance to the Orthodox Jewish community and we support the leadership of New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who again successfully championed this significant cause.

 

Turning Killers Into Heroes

Posted on: April 2nd, 2014

InDepthEditorial

So it always struck us as hypocritical that Israel was expected to release cold-blooded killers almost as a matter of habit while the U.S. balked at letting Pollard go.

The Times Rushes To The President’s Rescue

Posted on: March 26th, 2014

InDepthEditorial

There may not have been much else President Obama could have realistically done, but the headline writers at the Times obviously felt the need to massage a front-page story that took a less than giddy approach to Mr. Obama’s policymaking; how else to explain the story’s headline – “As Sanctions Start, Russia Feels a Sting”?

The ‘Jewish State’ Issue

Posted on: March 19th, 2014

InDepthEditorial

Commack Kosher Caterers And The Law Of Unintended Consequences

Posted on: March 19th, 2014

InDepthEditorial

The Jewish Press supported the “Orthodox Hebrew” standard since it at least purported to provide protection for the entire kashrut-observant community while a non-Orthodox standard would be misleading to the Orthodox.

Foreign Policy On A Hope And A Prayer

Posted on: March 5th, 2014

InDepthEditorial

One can almost imagine a shocked Mr. Kerry thinking to himself, “How could he?” Yet not only did Mr. Putin do what he did, China, one of the three major international players along with the U.S. and Russia, agreed with him, not with Mr. Kerry.

Historic Defense Cuts

Selective Indignation, Part 1,000

Posted on: February 19th, 2014
