Congrats (i.e. big mazel) to failedmessiah.com blogger and frequent Jewcy contributor Shmarya Rosenberg on The New York Times profile piece today (January 9, 2010 pg A17). The Times reports Shmarya has "transmuted a combination of muckraking reporting and personal grudge into a must-read digest of the actual and alleged misdeeds of the ultra-Orthodox world." We likey.
Truth be told (and please keep this quiet) the Jewish population is not that large and the Jewish media world is even smaller. The fact that any of us penguins can make the real news by addressing stereotypes, ethics, and insider nonsense is remarkable AND important. Keep fighting the good fight…and on that note WTF Fresh Direct! Take down this page already!
