OFFER TO MEET IS STILL OPEN — WITH NO RESPONSE YET
There’s still no response to our ongoing offer to meet with Jewish leaders and local politicians who criticized the Planet’s publication of an opinion piece from a reader which many considered anti-Semitic. The offer has continued to be open since we first made it public in our Aug. 11 issue and we have repeated it several times thereafter. Our advertisers are still being contacted by persons who urge them to boycott the paper because of this controversy, and several have cancelled their ads. If you’ve been out of town, you can find a summary with links to the articles and letters in question at berkeleydailyplanet.com/controversy.
