A closer look at the "most influential" journalist writing about Israel

in these days of smoke and mirrors, things are rarely what they seem...
Jeffrey Mark Goldberg (born September 1965) is an American-Israeli journalist. He is an author and a staff writer for The Atlantic, having previously worked for The New Yorker. Goldberg writes principally on foreign affairs, with a focus on the Middle East and Africa. Michael Massing called Goldberg "the most influential journalist/blogger on matters related to Israel". [Michael Massing is a contributing editor of the Columbia Journalism Review.]


He left college to move to Israel, where he served in the Israeli Defense Forces as a prison guard during the First Intifada.


Goldberg's book, Prisoners: A Muslim and a Jew Across the Middle East Divide (New York: Knopf, 2006), describes his experiences in Israel working at the Ketziot military prison camp as well as his dialogue with Rafiq, a prisoner whom Goldberg would later befriend in Washington, DC

so, let's take a bit of a closer look at "the most influential journalist/blogger on matters related to israel"...

just one of the people shamelessly put forward as "objective" sources to twist public opinion in the united states to the ends of those whose interests are solely and absolutely to have things go their way...
