In this week’s Reporters Roundtable podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward editor Jane Eisner to discuss why it’s the Forward is reporting on abuse allegations at Yeshiva University, even though the reported abuse occurred decades ago. Then, Forward reporter Paul Berger reports that one of the alleged Y.U. abusers continued to act inappropriately, years after his departure from the university. Then, opinion editor Gal Beckerman drops by to discuss his latest column why the “Israel Lobby” has suddenly become a pop culture punchline.
