Reporters’ Roundtable: ADL Controversy, and the Story Behind That Paul Rudd Video

The Anti-Defamation League’s controversial decision to come out against a proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero is the first topic of this week’s Reporters’ Roundtable. Then the podcast takes a turn for the silly, looking at the story behind the Forward’s first viral Web video. The video features a not-yet-famous Paul Rudd, emceeing a 1992 bat mitzvah. (Watch it here.) This week’s guests are Forward editor Jane Eisner and web editor Gabrielle Birkner.
