Site News — Welcome to our new Assistant Editor, Alex Kane

Alex Kane

Exciting news, Mondoweiss staff reporter extraordinaire Alex Kane will now be working on the site as an Assistant Editor. It feels odd saying “welcome” to someone who has been central to this site for several years, but it is a new role and we’re excited about it. Anyone who has spent five minutes on Mondoweiss has seen Alex’s rock solid reporting, illuminating interviews and smart analysis. This move will open a bit more time for him to write for the site and bring him over to the editorial side as well.

Please everyone re-welcome Alex now that he’s wearing a new hat (anything is better than the Yankees). Welcome Alex!

    Good news indeed.

    Congratulations, Alex. Is Allison Deger also going to continue as assistant editor, or is she moving on?

    The great Jewish cleavage is beginning to roll and I don’t mean something you’d see on the beach at Eilat.

    The split between America’s Jews and Israel’s will be monumental and watching it for Mondo will be a great experience.

  5. Mooser says:

    Seafoid, if Judaism is cleaved in twain, what will I do? All my tallits are made for a whole person!
    At least we know we’ll never get whole cloth from Alex Kane! A great step for Mondo!

    • Taxi says:

      Trivial pursuits for the word nerds out there:
      ‘To cleave’. The only verb in the English language that means itself as well as it’s opposite:
      To cleave asunder.
      To cleave together.

      **Oh yeah – and congrtz Alex!

  6. Congratulations Alex and thank you for all you contribute to Mondoweiss.

  9. Les says:

    Here’s something I hope you can deal with.

    Ex-Congresswoman Jane Harman who shared classified information with an Israeli agent is actually being seriously considered as the new CIA Director!
