Khalil Gibran School

The New York Times has a must read article about how a handful of ideologues, including the execrable Daniel Pipes and a dishonest reporter at the Post, sandbagged the school's principal with a smear campaign. Truly disgusting people.

“This was a situation where she was subject to sanction not for anything she said, not for anything she did, but because a newspaper reporter twisted what she said and the result of it was negative press for the city and the Board of Ed,” Judge Jon O. Newman told a city lawyer at a hearing in February.

Ms. Almontaser’s case will proceed in the Federal District Court in Manhattan.

Oh yeah, Rupert Murdoch's New York Post, that bastion of journalistic integrity. They let him by the Wall Street Journal, and now he wants to buy Newsday . . . along with Fox News, Fox Business News, and Fox. This is why we (used to) have laws against concentration of media ownership. Those laws need to be reinstated, and more stringent than before.
