Only in The New York Sun…

The following headline appeared above the fold on the front-page of New York’s (not so) covertly Jewish daily, the Sun: “Indyk Rushes To Ohio for Mrs. Clinton.”

For those for whom “Indyk” isn’t exactly a boldface name, let me put an end to your head-scratching: The “Indyk” to whom The New York Sun’s headline writer refers is Martin Indyk, director of the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center for Middle East Policy and a former American ambassador to Israel.

I love it when the Sun gets all Inside Baseball about Israel.

The funniest part is that Indyk is only mentioned once in the entire article. The article’s mostly about how Barack Obama is struggling to allay Jewish concerns about how he would handle Mideast policy while Hillary Clinton’s surrogates are trying to sell her as the safe choice.

I hope you appreciated this article. Before you go, I’d like to ask you to please support the Forward’s award-winning journalism this Passover.

In this age of misinformation, our work is needed like never before. We report on the news that matters most to American Jews, driven by truth, not ideology.

At a time when newsrooms are closing or cutting back, the Forward has removed its paywall. That means for the first time in our 126-year history, Forward journalism is free to everyone, everywhere. With an ongoing war, rising antisemitism, and a flood of disinformation that may affect the upcoming election, we believe that free and open access to Jewish journalism is imperative.

Readers like you make it all possible. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Passover Pledge Drive and we need 500 people to step up and make a gift to sustain our trustworthy, independent journalism.

Make a gift of any size and become a Forward member today. You’ll support our mission to tell the American Jewish story fully and fairly. 

— Rachel Fishman Feddersen, Publisher and CEO

Our Goal: 500 gifts during our Passover Pledge Drive!
