Im referring to the constant knocking of Hikind and anyone else they decide to bury. Nobody thinks Hikind is the best pol in our community but why the constant bashing and constant attempts at dirtying his name? There’s no question that this behavior reeks of sinas chinam. In the 9 days its certainly inappropriate to go out of your way to trash a frum Jew. Having a website that many people turn to for relevant news is a huge responsibility. Don’t abuse it.July 9, 2013 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #964859

Welcome to 21st century journalism.
One could try to set up a “newspaper of record” for the frum community with well education salaried reporters – but it would never make a profit.July 9, 2013 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #964861Oh Shreck!Participant
How did they let that one in?!?
Brave Mods. They take self criticism and publish it too.
That IS something to learn from.July 9, 2013 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #964862HaLeiViParticipant
I agree. This bothered me as well. I sure hope this won’t be repeated.
This kind of overt bad mouthing has no Makom among us. It’s the kind of thing I grew out of at 17, and it is actual real live Lashon Hara.
There are many stories that YWN did not print. While others mocked them, most of us are here for precisely that reason. What now?July 9, 2013 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #964863
I have the same problem,
it really pained me to read the article.

It’s actually only one “journalist” that seems to hold the reins here these days. When he was “only” bashing Satmar most of you seemed to be okay with it.July 10, 2013 1:00 am at 1:00 am #964865heretohelpMember
A tabloid is a paper where the fold is vertical, like the NY Post, as opposed to the NY Times, where the fold is horizontal. So if it is a tabloid in disguise, its a very bad disguise.July 10, 2013 1:33 am at 1:33 am #964866
there’s a big difference between “satmer” and naming an individualJuly 10, 2013 2:11 am at 2:11 am #964867yaakov doeParticipant
The Hikind story was picked up from another media source. The other Jewish news site may be considered tabloid, not this one.July 10, 2013 2:54 am at 2:54 am #964868WolfmanParticipant
Other than the Lower Manhattan rally, I haven’t noticed coverage critical of Satmar. Here in the CR, the Satmar Shita is extremely popular.July 10, 2013 3:55 am at 3:55 am #964869MammeleParticipant
It’s the rally related articles I was referring to where the same “reporter” was terribly biased. I’m still waiting for the promised “bombshell” proof that the rally organizers were behind the forged letter. And bashing a community is L”H.
B”H the Mods in the CR do a very fair job.July 10, 2013 4:48 am at 4:48 am #964870

Probably motzi Shem ra, actually. Even if the facts are true, the negative slant on what seems to me to be perfectly legal is wrong.July 10, 2013 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #964873apushatayidParticipant
those interested in ny politics should read the site city and state ny dot com.
for an interesting read on dov hikind bashing by ywn do a search on that site using the words hikind gordon yeshiva worldJuly 10, 2013 2:19 pm at 2:19 pm #964874mewhoParticipant
we need to try and have more ACHDUS. I have said it before and will say it again, others (Latinos, African Americans, Asians)know how to stick together like glue.
We should do the same.July 10, 2013 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #964875WIYMember
I’m actually shocked that after yesterday’s article the powers that be felt it would hasten the coming of moshiach by being mekayem the mitzvos of motzi sheim ra and sinas chinam and posting another hit piece about Hikind on their website. Really starting to wonder how this site can continue to call itself “yeshiva” world. There’s nothing yeshivish about this behavior.July 10, 2013 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #964876sharpMember
I find that YWN presents their news stories accurately without spinning it. That, in and of itself is very far from tabloid style.
Remember, it IS a news site. So it’s news that will be reported here. It is what it is…July 11, 2013 1:25 am at 1:25 am #964877HaLeiViParticipant
apushuta, amazing. Thanks for sharing. Seems like they’ve been doing some “Joseph” stuff all their own.
