  • Can journalists really be objective?

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    February 20, 2013 | 11:10 am

    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.

  • The Israeli vote

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    November 7, 2012 | 9:36 am

    Two weeks ago, when Jonathan Mann conversed with Israeli media and political science specialists on the upcoming U.S elections, the discussion revolved around the question: Why do Israelis care so much about the U.S election, and what is its importance to us? For an hour and a...

  • Promises, promises

    After a week of UN speeches, I had the urge to tell you about politicians from my point of view. For several days now my mind has been occupied with a rumble of thoughts and feelings, and I figured the only way I can make sense of it all is to write it down. So who are politicians?...

  • Opinion: Why I love paper

    By David Suissa

    January 11, 2012 | 3:51 pm

    It’s a fight to the death: As the digital revolution marches on, and more and more people do their reading on user-friendly digital devices, the end of paper’s 500-year reign seems to be at hand.

    Here at The Jewish Journal, we don’t take this development lightly. We have a...

  • Cooperation and Consolidation Needed on Jewish Web

    September 2, 2009 | 9:26 pm

    “The Internet will save you!” seems to be the refrain these days when it comes to the American Jewish media. But while many Jewish newspapers have grabbed for this lifeline, the process has been hectic and uncoordinated. We may be trying to save ourselves, but right now we’re...

  • The Los Angeles Bagels

    By Marty Kaplan

    July 9, 2008 | 10:30 pm

    What's the difference between Sam Zell's Los Angeles Times and Sam's Bagels on Larchmont?

    None, if you take Mr. Zell's words to heart. He told his Tribune Co. employees in June that "we're in the business of satisfying customers, and we will respond to what they say they want."...

  • Oops…Our 20th

    By Rob Eshman

    March 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    The news these days is gruesome, so it's difficult to feel celebratory. The brutal slaying of Ilan Halimi, a young Jew, by a gang of mostly Muslim anti-Semitic thugs in Paris; the fatal riots over a Danish cartoon; the death toll in Iraq -- no wonder I overlooked a sort of milestone...

  • Cartoon Riots Spark Sweet Backlash

    By David Finnigan

    February 16, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    In the wake of a Danish newspaper's decision to publish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, Danish flags and embassies are beset by violent protesters in heavily Muslim countries. But a chocolate store in the windmill-filled, Danish American tourist village of Solvang has...

  • Talk to Me

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    June 27, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I owe my life's work to Ann Landers. And, of course, her sister, Dear Abby. Dr. Rose Franzblau. And Dr. Joyce Brothers.

    It happened this way.

    In our New York home, my parents subscribed to three daily newspapers. Mom and Dad are enthralled by the tabloids. Even today, they read...

  • Prime Ribber

    By Michael Aushenker

    March 15, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Any regular reader of the Jewish Voice in the 1950s and 1960s will remember "DAYENU," a gag panel spoofing Jewish life. The weekly cartoon was attributed to Henry Leonard, actually a hybrid moniker representing two locals -- Rabbi Henry Rabin, longtime executive director of Hillel...
