Jeff Dunetz over at Yid With Lid sends the anti-Semite the following good riddence:

The reason for this step is that it disturbed me greatly to see an organization to which I am devoted facing possible harm because of my critical writings about Israel. I have no doubt that the crowd that opposes any and all criticism of Israeli government policies will continue to turn its guns on Media Matters if I am associated with it.
I could not live with myself if that happened — not only because I care deeply about the organization and my colleagues, but also because Media Matters does such important work confronting the lies that emanate from the far right and especially Fox News.
My presence here is being used in an effort to shut Media Matters up. That won’t happen, of course. This is an incredibly successful organization. (Just ask Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh — or Rupert Murdoch, for that matter — about its impact). But the last thing I want to do is allow the right to use my support for a reinvigorated Middle East peace process to distract Media Matters from its primary mission: fighting for truth in the media.
Rosenberg routinely uses anti-Semitic rhetoric; he has suggested in the past that any Jew who supports Israel is an “Israel firster” – a typical white supremacist slur. He has stated that Israel’s supporters would support Israel no matter what Israel did, and he has especially singled out Jewish Congresspeople for such comments. He recently tweeted, “I wonder if any candidate in either party other than Joe L [Lieberman] would slobber over Israel if it wasn’t for the $. Actually I don’t wonder.” Rosenberg is a big fan of anti-Semitic canard-masters John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, who suggested that the Israel lobby pays its way to power in the United States.
The notion that Rosenberg is leaving voluntarily seems quite suspicious. Media Matters is feeling pressure – possibly from the White House – to oust Rosenberg because conservatives have rightly focused on Rosenberg as the tip of the spear of Media Matters anti-Semitism. If Media Matters isn’t firing him, they remain as anti-Semitic as they ever were, and Rosenberg is just taking one for the team. If Media Matters is firing him, the question is: why now? The answer is clear: Obama and Media Matters are coming under severe scrutiny for their anti-Israel and anti-Jewish positions, and they want to disassociate from Rosenberg before American Jews realize with whom they are in bed.
NOTE: One point worth mentioning, the main reason why this jerk is leaving Media Matters, is to provide Obama a re-election campaign free from this albatross hanging around his neck. Being tied to anti-Israel radical is not going to endear Jewish voters to vote for Obama who already is viewed as being hostile to Israel. So big lib, Alan Dershowitz, was very instrumental in removing this jerk, albeit, in part, for the wrong reason, which is, to help Barack Obama.
