Not the online voice of Torah Jewry
Some may have wondered what is going on over at Matzav.com. The website that calls itself "The online voice of Torah Jewry". Recent articles and content published would not fall under the category of Torah Jewry. Feeling competition from other news sites that post anything to get hits such as Simchaspot and Onlysimchas, the editors have lowered the bar and its decline is obvious. Pictures of women now appear daily, they never published them previously, in fact a news article about Condoleezza Rice former Secretary of state had a photo of rice as in the food that we eat. Following the Superbowl there was a article of the top Superbowl ads and another nonsense article about OJ Simpson and other sports related or tabloid front page news. In an earlier post here we addressed the double standard in the frum media, still there should be standards online too.
