A New and Unwelcome Phenomenon: Journalism Contaminated by Politics
An American Jewish newspaper, the Forward, has teamed up with an extreme political group, Peace Now, and has committed itself to give donations to that group:
It is profoundly inappropriate for a newspaper to donate to a political group. The next thing we know, the Forward may take it into its head to make a donation to Mr. Olmert's Kadima party. We strongly denounce this unprofessional behavior on the part of an newspaper that was prominent in the past.
