Marty Kaplan Writing Archive

Lear Center director Marty Kaplan has been writing a column about media, politics and pop culture, in print and online, since 2005, when his work began appearing on the home page of the Huffington Post. From 2008 through 2017, his pieces also appeared in the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles; they won First Prize six times at the L.A. Press Club’s annual Southern California Journalism Awards. Since 2018, his biweekly column, now called “Oh Kaplan, My Kaplan,” has been published by the Forward, where he is a Senior Columnist. This archive, now comprising more than 400,000 words, makes that work available as pdfs and (where reliable) as links.​
