Journalists Whine–But Judy Miller Has (Finally) Served the Calling

Philip Weiss on

Yesterday on “Meet the Press,” a bunch of journalists rued the new landscape created by Patrick Fitzgerald and his star witness Judith Miller. Tim Russert, Gwen Ifill, Howard Kurtz—they all feared damage to professionalism, that the public might see the…

Is David Sanger Judy Miller deja vu, without the neocon fixins?

Philip Weiss on

David Sanger had a piece in the Times yesterday that was more Iran-fear-mongering. Iran test-fired a sophisticated missile on Wednesday that was capable of striking Israel and parts of Western Europe, adding to concerns that Iran’s weapons-development program is fast…

Big push begins for war on Iran

Philip Weiss on

Does this sound familiar? Here’s neoconservative Eli Lake, writing in the Washington Times: The United Arab Emirates ambassador to the United States said Tuesday that the benefits of bombing Iran‘s nuclear program outweigh the short-term costs such an attack would impose. The UAE has denied that its ambassador made such a statement. Does it even […]

Giving new meaning to the expression, Bombing on Broadway

‘Tablet’ hires Judy Miller as theater critic. I guess she won’t be fomenting any new wars…  (My wife always praised the right for picking up their wounded. Apropos of the late Eric Breindel.)

Ethnic Profiling in Journalism

Philip Weiss on

Wednesday’s Times had an article on an arrest in a terror case that took pains to identify the suspect’s ethnicity: Federal authorities in New York announced that a Swede of Lebanese descent [my emphasis], wanted in connection with establishing a…

I was making lunch and only caught about ten minutes of Bill Kristol’s speech at the Young America’s Foundation yesterday. But this is a blog, and ten minutes is enough for a post. I was surprised by how backward-looking and…

What should ‘The New York Times’ do re Israel/Palestine?

Philip Weiss on

I did it this morning, I do it often: slag the New York Times for doing biased coverage of Israel/Palestine. Do I single the Times out? Absolutely. It is still the hymnal of the Establishment, notwithstanding Arianna Huffington. But let…

‘Nation’ features brave new coalition of young and old non-Zionist Jews (taking on ‘racist breeding project’)

Philip Weiss on

This is an amazing moment, though a very small one. The Nation has run a number of letters responding to Kiera Feldman’s excellent report on Birthright, “The Romance of Birthright Israel,” and the letter the Nation runs at the start is from Allan Brownfeld of the American Council for Judaism, the anti-Zionist warhorse organization of […]

After Foxman OKs surveillance of American Muslims, John Lewis, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and EJ Dionne attend his gala

Philip Weiss on

It’s amazing how mainstream the Anti-Defamation League is, even when it comes out with stupendously Islamophobic statements. On Monday, for instance, Congressman John Lewis and E.J. Dionne of Brookings addressed the organization’s 100th-anniversary gala— as did Fred Lawrence, president of Brandeis, and Nadine Strossen, the NYU Law professor. But the day before Abe Foxman, the […]
