Basics:
jonathan.friedman@patch.com 508-821-8613 Hometown: Kendall, FL Birthday: March 4 Bio:  Born in Maryland and raised in South Florida, Jonathan Friedman dreamed of a career in broadcast journalism. He attended Ithaca College to pursue this dream. Following graduation in 2001, Friedman had a brief stint as a news reporter at KYCA-AM Radio in Prescott, AZ. It was at this time, he realized that print journalism was his calling. Friedman then moved to Los Angeles, where he began his career in print journalism. He started working for Patch as the editor of Malibu Patch in 2010.  Beliefs: At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible and human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal certain key beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable.  This disclosure is not a license for our editors to inject these beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that our beliefs are on the record will force us to be ever mindful to write, report, and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you, the user, ever think you see evidence that we failed in this mission, we wholeheartedly invite you to let us know. Politics ▪	How would you describe your political beliefs? I am not a member of any political party. I vote for Republicans and Democrats, and on occasion a third-party or independent candidate. Religion ▪	How religious would you say you are? Casual, observant, devout, non-religious? I'm a cultural Jew who enjoys the traditions of the religion and supporting Israel. I go to synagogue on occasion.
