I’m curious about the current editorial policy of the Cleveland Jewish News as to what news is fitting and proper for distribution in the Cleveland Jewish community. Recent full front page coverage and more stories like Gibson’s Bakery, the restaurant melee in Pepper Pike and even the size and depth of the Jody Podl/Shaker schools story – all good and interesting – but appropriate in size, scope and subject for the Cleveland Jewish News? It seems like the motivation is to sell more papers rather than best inform as to what’s happening in the Jewish world, locally and globally. As Seinfeld might say: “Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” But it would be interesting to know what the strategy is going forward.
