Malley’s Disciples

Recent news reports identifying Robert Malley as one of Barack Obama’s foreign policy advisers took the Monitor back a few years, to the summer of 2001 when the previously obscure Malley was suddenly popping up all over the place, castigating Israel for the collapse of the Camp David talks in 2000.

Deconstructing Sharon

Discriminating readers of The New York Times grew accustomed in the late 1990's to the error-prone (as well as transparently biased) reports filed with mind-numbing regularity by the paper's former Jerusalem bureau chief Deborah Sontag.

The Jayson Blair Affair: A Perspective

It now appears that The Times is finally 'fessing up to the
most outrageous abuses by one of its reporters and is
conducting an investigation into the full scope of Jayson
Blair's misleading of its readers. From what is already known,
for a period of four years, Blair fabricated news stories. But
what is intriguing is that some higher-ups at The Times
apparently were aware of Blair's wrongdoing, but for reasons
not yet clear ? he was not discharged. Some are suggesting
that notions of "affirmative action" (Blair is African-
American), were in play in Blair's being hired and not let go.

Sorry, But It’s Sontag Again

For the second week running the Monitor is forced to postpone a celebration of the death last month of one of the wickedest Jews to walk the earth in this or any other generation. The continuing fallout over outgoing New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief Deborah Sontag's novella-length rewrite of recent Middle East history leaves no choice but to put away the streamers and the silly hats and reschedule the party for the next column.

Those Calls For A Boycott Of The New York Times

One reading Deborah Sontag's front-page article in the July 26th issue of The New York Times could well understand the calls one hears lately for Jews to suspend their Times subscriptions over its outrageous coverage of the Middle East. Ms. Sontag's piece is transparent revisionism which well serves the seeming omnipresent effort to shift the blame for the collapse of Camp David from the Palestinians to something systemic to the Middle East conflict. It almost seems that Ms. Sontag and others now hawking the same line are following a scenario scripted by Arafat lieutenants intent on minimizing Israeli concessions at Camp David and thereby set the stage for the next phase of negotiations.

Notes On A Pair Of Pinheads

Would it be a tad tasteless for the Monitor to break into a hearty chorus of 'Ding Dong, the Witch Is Dead' at the welcome news that Deborah Sontag is soon to vacate her post as New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief?

Reading The Mail

The Monitor usually answers letters and e-mails privately, but sometimes a public response seems more appropriate, as the following three queries illustrate.
