BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY: Jacob Kornbluh, national politics reporter at Jewish Insider – Politico

Posted By on May 31, 2020

Whats a trend going on in the U.S. or abroad that doesnt get enough attention? I dont think the general public is aware of the level of online attacks on reporters that sometimes surpasses the widely reported hate speech and anti-Semitism. Journalists, thought leaders and communal figures often receive personal insults and threats -- including from within their own communities -- just for doing their job in such a difficult and divisive climate.

Hows the Trump presidency going? At Jewish Insider I have more than a full plate to cover the White House and national politics with an angle of interest to the Jewish community. Theres an election coming up in November and I trust the process will be less dramatic than the three consecutive Israeli elections over the past year.

Whats a fun fact that people in Washington might not know about you? I love cooking my favorite Shabbat dishes. Every Friday, after finishing work, I walk into my small kitchen and start preparing my Hungarian-style salmon, Israeli-style tahini and matbucha, and finish off with my Ashkenazi-style cholent (bean/beef stew).
