N.Y. Times death notice criticizes Times


UPI News Service, 02/27/2013 

A paid death notice in The New York Times said a retired Israeli-born stockbroker loved everything about the city except the Times.

The New York Post said Wednesday the notice for Amos Shuchman, 84, ran Feb. 2. Schuchman "loved his family, his birth and adopted countries, finance, skiing, opera, ballet and biking in Central Park. Loved everything about NYC, except The New York Times."

Daniel Shuchman told the Post his father fought in the Haganah, a Jewish resistance movement, before Israel became an independent state. He said his father thought the Times' coverage of the Middle East was biased, canceled his subscription a long time ago and would have been unhappy to learn his death had brought the newspaper revenue.

"We think he is in heaven now with a New York Post and a falafel sandwich, having a good chuckle over this notoriety," Daniel said.

Eileen Murphy, a Times spokeswoman, said she found the death notice "sort of amusing." She said death notices, which are paid, can say whatever they want, within broad limits.
