I found the original page on Google cache, did my previous post and tweeted thus:
And the Jewish Chronicle tweeted their reply thus:The @jewishchron has now removed DeborahMaccoby's letter correcting @afneil's misrepresentation of @mikopeled https://t.co/wacde32uDI https://t.co/7sdCqHjBxO— Jews Sans Frontieres (@jewssf) October 29, 2017
What that meant was that the print edition of the JC which most people get on Friday carried all the letters published on line on that day, 27 October 2017, but not Deborah's.The letter went up online this week too early. If you look at the hard copy of the paper, it's not in there - bec it is running this week.— The Jewish Chronicle (@JewishChron) October 29, 2017
Deborah's local JC stockist didn't get their copies on Friday and she still hasn't seen it. "My" copy is a typical JC and it passes through many family member hands before it reaches my pair. In fact, I was reduced to buying the blooming thing for the first time since my mother died last year.
And what do you know?
Look at the blurry pic I just took.
I think you can make out the names. They are:
Rabbi Gideon Schulman
Professor Geoffrey Alderman
Now this is where the plot gets a bit thicker. Let's have a look at the first manifestation of the JC letters webpage:
And after the "correction":
See the names? Jeff Lewis, Avi Moshe, Neville Landau, Josephine Bacon, Rabbi Gideon Schulman, Tony Adler, Barbara Epstein, Bryan Diamond and Neville Goldschneider.
Now this chimes with what the JC said in their tweet. You see? Deborah Maccoby's letter wasn't published in Friday's print edition. But scroll back up and see Professor Geoffrey Alderman in the print edition but not the webpage. More mystery. What happened to the Professor?
But back to Deborah. According to Deborah, she sent the letter in good time for publication in last Friday's edition so if it was going to be published she would have expected it to be published then. Now the JC, via its tweet, seems to saying that her letter is going to be in this Friday's edition. Before I saw the last print edition today I had assumed Deborah's letter was in that one. So now, if the JC, is saying that Deborah's letter is pegged to go into the edition of Friday 3 November we can expect to see the letter in print on that day and on line on the same day.
In the meantime. let's see that letter again in case it does another disappear:
About free speech
I must say, I'm still puzzled about Professor Geoffrey Alderman. Why didn't his letter appear on line?
