Credit Gawker reporter John Cook for prodding Atlanta Jewish Times owner and publisher Andrew Adler to apologize for his column suggesting “a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence.” Cook writes:
A nervous Adler told me over the phone that he wasn’t advocating Obama’s assassination by Mossad agents. “Of course not,” he said.
But do you think Israel should consider it an option? “No.”
An apology followed.
