Objective reporting

The Lakewood news section of the Yated newspaper has an article on the elections for fire commissioner. The report has quotes from commissioner Larry Loigman who is running for a second term. Nowhere in the article does the report mention the name of the other candidates running. A paper can slant the news as it likes, but failing to mention the names of Meyer Cohen, David Mizrahi two frum yidden who are also running is insulting and degrading to the readership and the Tzibbur.

משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה ???

Rosh chodesh Adar was set as a deadline by many schools to send out acceptance letters. Unfortunately the deadline has come and surprise surprise, many children are still not in school. Parents check their mail box daily for notices, yet nothing has happened. They call the schools and are getting the same run around. Its back to the same old same old. Gevirim and askanim promised to end the madness, lets hope many will have what to be besimcha about in the month of Adar.

Meir Atkin has only one regret about donating a kidney to a stranger — that he doesn’t have an extra one to give to someone else. “I wish people knew how easy it is,” said the 31-year-old father of three. “I tell my wife all the time I wish Hashem had given me three kidneys so I could do it again.” Atkin, a Lakewood resident, grew up in Highland Park and Edison and is a doctoral student in psychology at Rutgers University.

Tweets on killing, bombing Jews in Lakewood deemed no threat

 APP -JACKSON – A State Police sergeant's teenage daughter who dressed like Hitler and posted on social media a picture of a popular gathering spot for Orthodox Jews — with the caption "perfect bombing time" — may have behaved offensively, but not criminally, authorities said. In one tweet, a person wrote, "I really wanna drive around Lakewood and run over every Jew with my car." The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office examined the Twitter post and a cache of other pro-Hitler images by the Jackson teen and her associates and concluded that they did not amount to any credible threat.  "There was never any danger being posed to the community," said Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the office. "It didn't rise to anything criminal." read more
