The Jerusalem Post
The Jerusalem Post is an Israeli daily English-language broadsheet newspaper, founded on December 1, 1932 by Gershon Agron as The Palestine Post. While the daily readership numbers (tens of thousands) do not approach those of the major Hebrew newspapers, the Jerusalem Post has a much broader reach than these other newspapers in that its readership comprises Israeli politicians, foreign journalists, and tourists, and it is also distributed worldwide. While it was once regarded as left-wing, the paper underwent a noticeable shift to the right in the late 1980s. Since 2004, under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Bret Stephens and Executive Editor Amotz Asa-El, the paper has moved to the center, when they decided with Opinion Editor Saul Singer to back Ariel Sharon's plan to withdraw from Gaza. The shift to the center continued under Editor-in-Chief David Horovitz, for instance when he advocated the privatization of Israeli religious institutions. The Post features columns and opinion articles spanning the political spectrum, from Caroline Glick on the right to Larry Derfner on the left. On the economy, the Post has been consistently conservative since 1995, when Amotz Asa-El joined as Business Editor and advocated, both in the paper's edtorials and in his column, fiscal and monetary discipline, currency liberalization, low taxation, low tariffs, privatization, competition, and small government.
