Richard Cohen: Anti-Semitism is not just another opinion. The New York Times should know better.”

Richard Cohen, writing in The Washington Post, about The New York Times interview of Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple:

Over the centuries, anti-Semitism has been many things - a religious conviction, an ideology, a national ethic, an unadorned expression of hate and, in more recent times, evidence of sturdy insanity. Now thanks to a New York Times interview with Alice Walker, it’s been reduced to merely a point of view. To cite the Times’s own motto, this interview was definitely not news that’s fit to print.”
