Notable storiesEdit

In 2012, questions by Michael C. Moynihan, writing for Tablet, led to Jonah Lehrer's resignation from The New Yorker: Lehrer had invented and cobbled together quotes attributed to Bob Dylan for his biography of the singer, Imagine: How Creativity Works.[2]

In 2017, Tablet hired Gretchen Rachel Hammond, a Chicago journalist fired from her job at Windy City Times after breaking the news of Jewish activists being expelled from the Chicago Dyke March.[3][4]

StaffersEdit

Previous and current writers and editors associated with Tablet include Allison Hoffman,[5] Liel Leibovitz, Alana Newhouse (founder), Marc Tracy,[6] Tal Kra-Oz, and Bari Weiss. Russian-American journalist Vladislav Davidzon is Tablet's European Culture Critic.

AwardsEdit

Tablet has been nominated for five National Magazine Awards, winning first in 2011 for podcasting and again in 2012 for blogging (both categories have since been discontinued).[7]
