A column that the editor of the “Forward” newspaper dedicated to the founder of The Movement of Public Journalism, Yair Tarchitsky
Under the title “Can This Man Revitalize Israeli Journalism”, Jane Eizner, then the editor in-cheif of the American publication “Forward”, dedicated her column to the founder of The Movement of Public Journalism (and the head of The Journalists’ Organisation), Yair Tarchitsky. Eisner interviewed Tarchitsky and wrote in the leading Jewish newspaper in the US about the unionization he led and about the establishment of The Movement of Public Journalism.
Here's a part from her column:
"Journalists are now among the most unionized sectors in the Israeli economy, and Tarchitsky’s success emboldened him to take on an even more ambitious challenge: revitalize Israeli journalism, which is suffering the same public disconnect as we experience in America. “We need a new model,” he told me. “So we are creating a social movement whose only goal is to serve the public through journalism.”
