America’s Real ‘Dangerous Slide’ to the Wrong Side

Obama, a man who has spent a few hours in Israel and has no empathy with it, dares to say that he knows better what that country needs than does Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Reporters Distance Themselves from UK Newspaper’s Backing of Morsi

Two writers for the Guardian newspaper have distanced themselves from an editorial in the Guardian in which the paper criticizes the liberal opposition to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Ha’aretz Editor: “I Hate Israeli Settlers”

In an interview published on November 7 by Israel’s Globes online business magazine, Ha’aretz editorial board member Gideon Levy spoke frankly and openly about his “hatred” of Jews making their lives in Judea and Samaria.

To Tell The Truth: An Unlikely Scenario

Despite public surveys that show the general public largely opposed to negative campaigning, the overwhelming majority of candidates in contested races have refined this strategy almost to an art form.

Rhoda Jacobs Meets With The Jewish Press

Assemblywoman Rhoda Jacobs recently met with the editorial board of The Jewish Press at the newspaper’s New York office. Jacobs, who is the Assembly member for New York State’s 42nd Assembly District, has been in the Assembly since 1979. Her district, which is very ethnically diverse, is primarily made of Flatbush neighborhoods and part of Midwood.

Nostrums And Clichés

The New York Times greeted the release of the Levy Report with a not unexpected shrill editorial that captured the sentiment of the Arab world, the consensus of international opinion, and the view of not a few Jewish organizations here in the U.S.

Is The Gray Lady Losing It?

Over the past several years the editorial page of The New York Times has taken on an increasingly desperate tone. There is no doubt that the advent of the Internet and conservative talk radio came at great cost to the Gray Lady, which for some time now has seemed incapable of framing issues in the methodical – if wrongheaded – manner it once did. But the level of shrillness in recent days is completely off the charts.

Female Rabbis Make Less than Male Counterparts, But Some Fare Better

Female Reform rabbis are paid less than their male counterparts, but it's a far cry from the normal disparities between U.S. male and female employees.

What Does It Mean To Be ‘Pro-Israel’?

There is no one definition of the term “pro-Israel.” It does not require anyone to be a cheerleader for Netanyahu or any other Israeli leader or party. But there are some things one cannot do and still claim to be within the pro-Israel camp. One of them is to adopt rhetoric that apes the efforts of Israel-haters to delegitimize supporters of Israel and which adopts the classic themes of anti-Semitism.

The Gray Lady Versus Our Security

The New York Times recently threw a hissy fit over what it felt were overzealous efforts by Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly to defend NYPD anti-terrorist surveillance programs the Times opposes.

New NY Times Jerusalem Bureau Chief Tips Her Hand

Incoming New York Times Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren has been exhibiting not only questionable judgment but also an overt bias against Israel even before she’s landed in the country.

A Landscape Transformed Orthodoxy and America’s Elite Universities

“Rabbi, did you ever think you would see this day?” It was 1971, and the university official who asked this question was inviting the rabbi to the dedication of the kosher dining room in Stevenson Hall on the campus of Princeton University.

Bias Exemplified

The Monitor often is asked for an example of a news story that exhibits such blatant bias it astounds even a jaded observer of the mainstream media. Such a story appeared in the March 29, 2006 edition of The New York Times, on the occasion of the passing of Lyn Nofziger, longtime aide to Ronald Reagan.

Whither Israeli Democracy?

In recent months a new theme has replaced the media’s past obsession with Israel’s alleged mistreatment of the Palestinians.

Thomas Friedman and the New Anti-Semitism

Though The New York Times’s Thomas Friedman invariably characterizes himself as a friend of Israel, his Dec. 14 column illustrates the slippery slope along which critics of the Jewish state invariably slide as they attempt to shout down those with whom they disagree.

Gingrich And The ‘Invented People’

Newt Gingrich is taking a lot of flack for telling a Jewish cable channel that the Palestinians are an “invented people.”

Skewing The Shalit Deal, New York Times-Style

I’ve been reading The New York Times pretty much every single day since I was ten years old. That’s more than a half-century by now.

Who Saved Soviet Jewry?

The recent release of additional Nixon White House presidential documents and tapes produced the usual response. As has become customary, brief excerpts of the tapes - excerpts that invariably show President Nixon and members of his administration in the most unflattering light possible - are pulled from the reams of material and hours of conversations and given broad coverage in the media.

Title: The Hidden Hand: Uncovering Divine Providence in Major Events of the 20th Century

Yaakov Astor applies the time-honored tradition of examining world events through a Torah lens, which he applies to the 20th century, leaving readers wiser than they were before.

Memoirs, Bad And Good

The Monitor’s recent listing of worthwhile books on the media brought in a number of interesting responses, with many readers sharing their own favorites – several of which probably should have been included among the recommended titles and possibly will be in a future column on the subject.

History Lessons

Several readers, at least one or two of them presumably not in the employ of the Democratic National Committee, took the Monitor to task for suggesting that Sen. Hillary Clinton was a pioneer in the art of elevating a scamp like Al Sharpton to the status of esteemed statesman.

Letters To The Editor

Information Sought    I am looking for Arthur Kurtz, whose photograph of my late husband, Rabbi Meir Kahane, zt"l, appeared in a Brooklyn College newspaper...

The Times’s Strange Potshot

It’s not exactly news that The New York Times editorial page detested Ronald Reagan. But who would have thought that seventeen years after the end of his presidency and nearly two years after his death the Times would still seek to denigrate Reagan’s legacy, on its news pages, in a manner that can only be described as petty and inappropriate?

Sharon’s Glowing Coverage

There was no escaping the news of Ariel Sharon’s massive stroke last week. Newspapers, magazines, radio, television, the Internet — all were chock full of breaking stories; backgrounders on Sharon’s life; sound bites from doctors, Israelis, Arabs, Jews in New York, and various Jewish organizational types desperately trying — without much success — to seem even a little bit relevant.
