Ethical challenges finally got him transferred. Jodi Rudoren replaced him. More on her below.

Deputy Jerusalem bureau chief Isabel Kershner is ethically compromised twice over. She consistently misreports. Her husband, Hirsh Goodman, is senior research fellow and director of Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Securities (INSS).

It's connected to Israel's government and military. Many of its professionals have government and/or IDF backgrounds. Israel helps fund it.

Goodman's job is spin. Material he puts out influences Kershner's writing. He calls media reporting strategically important. No matter how lawless and harmful, it gives Israeli policy legitimacy.

INSS and Goodman are tasked with shaping a positive Israeli image. Kershner's articles rely heavily on INSS analysis. Times editors conceal her affiliation. They ignore her consistent bias. She's a walking conflict of interest. Her articles lack credibility.

The Times own ethical policy says:

"Staff members must be sensitive that direct political activity by their spouses".may well create conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts."

"If newsroom management considers the problem serious, the staff member may have to withdraw from certain coverage. Sometimes an assignment may have to be modified or a beat changed."

Kirshner's family ties automatically should have disqualified her from reporting on Israel/Palestine. She's more Israeli press agent than correspondent.
