    By Bill Boyarsky

    April 12, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Happily for them, most of the old-time Los Angeles anti-Semites who used to hang out at the downtown California Club are either dead or too old to care that a Jew is on the verge of owning the L.A. Times.

    Not just any Jew. Sam Zell looks as though he's one tough Jew, probably even...

    One day at lunch with a group of reporters and editors, Dave Laventhol, then the publisher of the Los Angeles Times, was musing that journalists had become elitist, separated from their communities, maybe even too educated.

    Was my bachelor's degree suddenly an encumbrance?

    Bill Boyarsky

    Bill Boyarsky's article ("Needed: Rational Discussion," Aug. 18) was inaccurate and mean-spirited. He had the opportunity to dissent and speak up at the meeting of more than 400 attendees, but instead chose to vent to Journal readers who were not there and who could...

  • Simply Wrong

    By Bill Boyarsky

    May 6, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    The Republicans are praying that President Bush's embrace of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza withdrawal plan will sway the Jewish vote.

    It is a simplistic way of looking at things, although totally in line with the presidential campaign's simplistic discussion of Israel. For...

    Kim Murphy's article "Danger in Denying the Holocaust" could be dismissed as amateurish at best were it not the Jan. 7 Column One story of the Los Angeles Times. Because of where it appeared, some of the issues it raised must be addressed. She doesn't present the stakes in the Irving...

    Balanced Coverage?
