Quoting Blogger(s)

Orthomom is calling foul on the Jewish Press for quoting from her blog without attribution AND on the Jewish Week for their Blue Fringe article. She writes:
Um, it was not many internet bloggers who made all those comments. Just one. Me. There's really no excuse for their not naming me as the originator of those comments. Not that I care that much, but it isn't exactly ethical. And certainly unoriginal. Not that I expect originality from the great journalistic resource that we call the Jewish Press.

Similarly, that other great journalistic resource that we call the NY Jewish Week published a fawning front page profile of the band Blue Fringe. While I do think they have talent, and certainly do appeal to the Orthodox tween and teen set, I think that in the interest of full disclosure, the reporter might have seen fit to make it known that she was writing the article about her boss's son's band. That's right, Blue Fringe is led by Dov Rosenblatt, the son of none other than Gary Rosenblatt, the illustrious editor of the Jewish Week.
She also notes more criticism of the Jewish Week's failure to disclose here.

Thanks, E!
