Memoirs, Bad And Good

19 Kislev 5768 – November 28, 2007
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

11 Adar 5767 – February 28, 2007
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.

The Times’s Strange Potshot

8 Nisan 5766 – April 5, 2006
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

11 Tevet 5766 – January 11, 2006
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.

Fishl’s Footrace: An Interview With Fred Lebow’s Biographer

7 Adar I 5765 – February 16, 2005
Fred Lebow, who died in October 1994, took a small race that had been held in Central Park and turned it into a Big Apple spectacle - the New York City Marathon, the world's greatest footrace.

Latest In Kosher Food

10 Tevet 5765 – December 22, 2004
On the day after the elections, many of us gathered in the old editorial office to watch John Kerry concede to George W. Bush.

A Churning Stomach And An Upturned Nose

28 Iyyar 5764 – May 19, 2004
Several weeks ago, there was back and forth "dialogue" in the editorial pages of the Jewish Press concerning the very subjective view as to who is the more "authentic" Jew amongst the various segments of the Orthodox community.

The “New” Outreach?

28 Iyyar 5763 – May 30, 2003
A letter published in last week's issue as well as several others slated for publication in the coming weeks, are critical of our editorial comment several weeks ago regarding Agudath Israel of America's Avi Shafran's penchant for addressing religious issues in non-Orthodox publications. Our comments were triggered by a particular Shafran piece in the March 21 issue of such a publication, The Jewish Week, entitled "What Da'at Torah Really Means," in which Shafran addressed the seeming rejection by so-called Modern Orthodoxy of the notion of general deference in decision-making to Torah authorities.

The First-Ever Media Friends List

20 Elul 5762 – August 28, 2002
A hundred and thirty four. As in 134. Not submissions - those numbered close to a thousand (951 when we stopped the count, with more still coming) - but names. It quickly became obvious that the Monitor had some serious whittling down to do if this Media Friends List was going to work at all.

Two Surprises And A Pinhead

24 Elul 5761 – September 12, 2001
The bombing of the Jerusalem Sbarro pizzeria leaves the Monitor no choice but to again shelve a good-riddance, tribute-in-reverse obituary for an incomparably odious Jew whose stay of Judgment was at long last revoked early last month.

Comic Relief From The ADL

5 Av 5761 – July 25, 2001
It was shaping up to be a rather uneventful day until the arrival of a press release from one of the Monitor's favorite Jewish organizations. Laughter may not the best medicine, but it certainly is the best palliative to boredom, and in that sense, at least, the Anti-Defamation League will never be accused of being boring.

Softening The Landing For The Terrorists

16 Tammuz 5761 – July 7, 2001

Good To Wrap Fish In

22 Sivan 5761 – June 13, 2001
There's a certain maxim among media critics (and if there isn't, the Monitor just coined it) that goes like this: If all seems right in the world of journalism, you probably haven't opened up that day's New York Times.
