Mighty Morphin Silly Newspaper.

[This post is dedicated to my brothers. And terrible journalism]. Why this is an article in Ynet is beyond me. But, then again, there’s Ynet for ya. The breaking news: This past summer, the popular Power Rangers have returned to Israeli television screens.   They’ve entered their 18th season, making it an intergenerational show, a […]

Oh, THAT’S what the Israeli summer protests were about.

Is Ynet even trying? Did they ever? Always good for a laugh, whatever the case. I still don’t know where I stand with Israel’s summer 2011 socio-economic national protest. That’s because I still don’t know where it stands. But, nonetheless, I think we can all agree: You can’t find good shwarma in New York City. […]

Ynet thinks it's Monday.

I’m working really hard to get through this busy week and come out the other end at Purim, and Ynet is trying to hold me back: C’mon guys. It’s March 18th, Tuesday. I busted my chops to get here, and I’ll be damned if you try and take me back to yesterday.

There's something worse than Israel?

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: Ynet made me do a double-take with that one. But they really ought not to lie in journalism…
