Barry Rubin’s recent quote about the Guardian

Professor Barry Rubin, who blogs at Rubin Reports, has done a spectacular job covering the Guardian’s “Palestine Papers.”

Indeed, Rubin is truly in a class by himself in the blogosphere: An eminent scholar on the Middle East who also consistently writes posts which are well-informed, concise, pithy and, often, quite witty.

So, while you should read his recent post, criticizing the New York Times’ coverage of the Middle East, in its entirety, I just couldn’t resist posting his conclusion, in a piece titled, “Today in the New York Times: A new low and a new role model.”

Rubin:

And now for the surprise conclusion. Ladies and gentlemen, while there are honorable exceptions, the New York Times has now reached the level of…the Guardian.

Rubin’s last sentence is a (completely warranted) attack on the Grey Lady, but also represents, perhaps, the only good thing to come out of PaliLeaks: The increasing recognition, by commentators across the political spectrum, that when it comes to the vicious assault on Israel’s legitimacy in the mainstream media, the Guardian is truly in a class by itself.
