Andrew Sullivan garners much attention for his bold moves as a blogger. But what about the quality of his judgments?

Rarely has the McCarthyite smear of “anti-Semitism” been revealed to be so empty as in the case of Obama’s DoD nominee.

Nathan Englander’s play, The Twenty-Seventh Man, focuses on the moment that Yiddish culture in Russia died a sudden and unnatural death.

The Fox News owner resorted to an anti-Semitic canard in attacking alleged media bias against Israel.
