CAMERA: Newsweek publishes unsubstantiated allegations of Israeli spying

Cover of last print issue, December 31, 2012. It shows the building it once owned in New York.

Newsweek was once a leading news magazine. It fell on hard times, stopped publishing its hardcover editions and now has only an internet edition.

Unfortunately, if its May 6, 2014 article on alleged Israeli spying is any indicator, its standards have declined in parallel to its importance.

The writer of the piece, Jeff Stein is a self-styled commentator on issues involving the intelligence community.

For his piece on Israeli spying, Stein mostly relies upon anonymous sources, always a red flag.
