  • Shh! Don’t talk about sex at Yeshiva University

    December 13, 2011 | 4:51 pm

    It wasn’t your typical college sex scandal. There were no accusations of molestation, inappropriate faculty-student relationships or date rape charges.

    Instead, the precipitating incident was the publication by a student-run newspaper of a female student’s first-person account...

  • Oh Sarah Palin, what nonsense fell out of your mouth now…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 7, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her...

    By Julia Bendis

    May 9, 2011 | 1:56 pm

    I am a huge advocate for standing up for what’s right, freedom of speech and people’s right to speak their mind; when it has direct impact on their lives, like a local issue.  Most often than not, I am raising hell over various issues, opening my big mouth and trying to change things...

    By Julia Bendis

    January 14, 2011 | 2:58 pm

    Reading the newspaper the other day, I couldn’t help but notice an article about the Russian President Dimitry Medvedev and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Apparently, the two have become quite fond of each other, and as recently as last week even Tweeted about it.

    Here are my issues with...

  • Stodgy Jews

    By Joel Chasnoff

    June 1, 2009 | 3:42 pm

    Last night, I did my stand-up comedy act at a fundraiser for a Jewish newspaper. The publisher, a Jewish grandma in her 60s named Esther, explained that if the newspaper didn’t raise fifty grand, they’d have to fold. She blamed their predicament on the economy, and also on...

    By Tamar Sternthal

    July 19, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Op-Ed contributors to the Los Angeles Times are an eclectic bunch, including novelists, historians, policymakers, humorists, activists, and most recently, genocidal terrorists. On July 10, 2007, Mousa Abu Marzook, "the deputy of the political bureau of Hamas," authored an Op-Ed full...

  • Sam Zell is one tough Jew

    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...

    By Bill Boyarsky

    November 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    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?

  • The Lichtenstein Formula for a Jewish Paper

  • Tribe

    By Julie G Fax

    October 6, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Back when I was working at a newspaper in New York, my editors and I tried to come up with a teen-sounding headline for a story on voting for our new teen section.

    "How about 'Gettin' Out the Vote'?" my editor offered.

    As if dropping a "g" off the end of the word is all one needs to...

  • Fast and Loose With Facts at Ha’aretz

    By Tamar Sternthal

    November 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    The Israeli daily Ha'aretz, a favorite of the intelligentsia in Israel and the West, and widely cited by the North American press, is frequently referred to as "Israel's New York Times." But a New York Times it is not.

    By Rob Eshman

    March 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    I first met Stanley Hirsh in 1984 when he stopped by to visit an after-school program in Jerusalem where I was working as a counselor. The kids and I were playing a game of basketball on a cracked blacktop court.

    After watching from the fence for a while, Stanley called me over and...

  • Many Angry Voices

    By Mike Levy

    December 12, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The old joke says, "For every two Jews, you have three opinions." So is it possible that, as members of the Jewish political left complained in an ad on the back page of this newspaper on Nov. 22, "In the name of unity in a time of crisis, the great Jewish tradition of vibrant and...

  • Everyone Loves a Wandering Jew

    By Jonathan Kellerman

    May 24, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It was more than a bit jarring to flip to the Los Angeles Times May 5 opinion-editorial pages and be confronted by a Magen David displayed prominently above the lead editorial, topped by the banner, "Rebuilding the Temple."

    This is the Los Angeles Times we're talking about, a paper...
