NYT: Shabbat Continues Through Saturday Night
In an apparent effort to prove its bona fides as the paper of record for the culturally tone deaf, the New York Times sent its movie blogger, “The Carpetbagger,” out to explain to the world why he doesn’t find Sacha Baron Cohen funny. In the midst of his lamentation, he notes:
Baron Cohen is reportedly an observant Jew, give or take an appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” so he has license to use anti-Semitism to expose anti-Semitism.
So now the NYT is clueless about the most basic Jewish tradition? I guess it’s sort of understandable — it’s not like any Jews live in New York.
