I was somewhat surprised to see that Rabbi Michael Broyde has been posting Halachik essays. These writings have appeared on the Seforim blog and most recently on Hakirah Volume 18.
Integrity has been all over the news lately. Those who grew up in the era of Walter Cronkite can remember the authoritative voice that garnered trust. Yet even in our liberal land of everything goes, newscasters have been held to a higher standard. The firings of Dan Rather and recent suspension of Brian Williams prove that lying is not acceptable for those who we place our trust in.
So someone who is willing to prevaricate, and attempts to alter history to further his agenda, especially an halachik agenda, to me that is an unpardonable offense, and no longer deserves a soapbox, be it blog or periodical.
