Happy Month Anniversary, Free Beacon!

A month ago, John Podhoretz gave a shout out to the Washington Free Beacon, an online investigative newspaper focusing on national security, and corruption and anti-Semitism on the Left. John noted that the site was having some “birthing pains” even as it was doing an excellent job.

Well, any hiccups seem to be a thing of the past. Matthew Continetti’s essays and Bill Gertz’s national security scoops are must reads. Former Washington Jewish Week reporter Adam Kredo has also been doing yeoman’s work investigating not only the troubling anti-Semitic accusations of dual loyalty that many at John Podesta’s Center for American Progress as well as Media Matters for America appear to embrace, but also the Jewish groups and Foundations which fund such anti-Semitism. While some media outlets embrace groups endorsing Occupy AIPAC, it was Kredo who pointed out that working for the group was the cartoonist who took second place in President Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust denial conference.

If this is what the Free Beacon has achieved in just its first month, the only question out there is what will month two bring? Happy Anniversary, Free Beacon. Keep up the good work!
