It's with mixed emotions that Zach and I are announcing an end to daily updates to this blog. We've been blogging since October of 2009, and we've had some great times and big stories.
Our decision comes from a combination of other activities in our lives interesting us more, and the changes in the Huffington Post itself. Since the creation of the Huffington Post's new comment policy, the number of comments have gone way down in articles in general and especially Israel related ones. An Israel related article that once generated a hundred angry comments now results in five or six. On top of that, at least in the few past months, the Huffington Post has removed its laser focus on Israel that it's had for the past four years in favor of more "gotcha" type headlines about foreign celebrities and bloody shirt photos.
With such a lack of material, it doesn't make sense for us to continue blogging daily. I'm sure regular readers would agree with us.
We plan to continue to check the Huffington Post daily and blog when big news or blatant bias hits, but the standard day to day updates are going to end.
Thanks to all of those out there who supported us, commented on this blog, and linked to us in the past four years, especially Huff-Watcher and CiFWatch.
If you come here looking for daily updates and are disappointed to find none, make yourself feel better with rewatching the biggest story we ever broke on this blog: Norman Finkelstein's criticism of BDS.
