Who's Trying to Silence Free Speech?: Media counterattack against bias charges misses the point

By Jonathan Tobin

A symbolic protest that calls for subscribers or advertisers to withhold their business for a limited time is not a throwback to Nazi Germany. Those who do not wish to read my work need not purchase any outlet that publishes it. The same holds true of any other other publication. That's not mob rule, it's just the workings of a free market, without which there cannot be a truly free press.

outlook
Some passion about Israel
By Marianne M. Jennings

Americans do not sally forth into Middle East policy. There's geography idiocy involved. Many believe they visited the Gaza Strip the last time they were in Vegas.

They also apply the Hatfield/McCoy and Montague/Capulet factor. With such irreconcilable differences, they reason, only internal folly or tragedy can resolve it.

There is a certain arrogance that has descended on every president from Nixon through W (Reagan excepted) that makes each believe he is the one leader who can crack the Middle East peace code. The State Department creates this presidential conceit.

Stereotypes about stereotypes
By Thomas Sowell

Vanderbilt University is one of a number of academic institutions that are making a special effort to attract Jewish students. The idea is that these students tend to have higher test scores, which will raise the average test scores of these institutions -- which in turn will cause them to rise in academic rankings.

Officials of some predominantly Jewish high schools have called it "reprehensible" to single out Jews, even for special recruitment. A spokesman for a high school in suburban New York said, "a positive stereotype is just as pernicious as a negative one."

But is it just a stereotype that some groups do better at some things than other groups do?
