A post about the Israel lobby... Not!

Via Matthew Yglesias I have learned, from Eric Alterman via M.J. Rosenberg, that "20-something Jews now coming up in the media are very different than their media elders and don't buy into their paranoid views." Go on, M.J.:

"We talked about Matt Yglesias, Ezra Klein, Ari Berman, Max Blumenthal and one or two more (including the slightly older Josh Marshall). Not an Abe Rosenthal or William Safire among them. We don't need more of them. We do need more Eric Altermans and, in these guys, we have them. (Eric didn't include himself. I include him)."

Fine, so they're not rabid Zionists. Which is certainly a relief, but I for one am much more reassured to see that they are all men.
