Benjamin Korn of Jews for Sarah, writing at the JTA, OP-ED: Jews becoming commonplace in conservative ‘new media’:
Many reviews already have appeared of “The Undefeated,” the soon-to-be-released documentary about Sarah Palin’s tenure in Alaska.Yet none of them — even in The Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post or The Washington Post — mentions that nearly all of the film’s many pro-Palin media talking heads are Jews.
The dominant meme that Jews as a group are uncomfortable with Palin or her views seems less than convincing after viewing prominent Members of the Tribe defend her politics and record in elected office. Internet news mogul Andrew Breitbart, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin and L.A.’s radio phenom Tammy Bruce, a gay Jewish Palinista with a Tammy’s Army of followers, all deliver full-throated tributes to one of America’s most conservative political figures…..
Significant relative newcomers include bloggers such as Ted Belman of IsraPundit, Dan Greenfield of SultanKnish and Ruth King of Ruthfully Yours, along with sites such as Israel Matzav, YidWithLid, Yeshiva World News and the Yiddish-titled but English-language Vos Iz Neias? (What’s New?).
Hey, I may be small potatoes, but I’m not chopped liver. A shout out would have been nice.
Maybe I need a blog name that sounds more Jewish. Any suggestions?
