J-Street is the supposed liberal alternative to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). 

J-Street has been accused — including by me — of being nothing more than a front group meant to undermine U.S. support for Israel by playing the “balance” card pushed by groups like the Center for American Progress...

Chris Muir takes note:

Worry not, Dear Journolistas,

You still have your youthful snark, irrelevant wit, what the f@#k kick ass attitudes, and epistemic closures;
