    Too many books about Israel try to tell us what to think or feel. Whether from the left or right, it seems that the subject of Israel brings out the emotional partisan in many of us. We feel strongly one way or the other, so we like to read books or articles that support our...

    Journalists are perceived as the most solid people for the presentation of neutral news, both to the public and to themselves. But as neutral as we wish to be, opinion is inevitable. It finds its way out there, even if you are writing a plain and simple news report.

    By Danielle Berrin

    May 8, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    Maher, Snow Spar at American Jewish University

    Calling Bill Maher "politically incorrect" is too kind. Bitingly snide, bitterly sarcastic, at times crude, caustic and offensive, he is also horribly funny.
