The LA Jewish Journal has a piece on the Rubashkin audit. To give you an idea of the quality of the Jewish Journal's reporting, note this quote from the Journal:
[T]he meeting between the OU and FMI representatives is set to take place some time next month to officially change the FMI guidelines to allow for ritual kosher slaughtering.
The fact is FMI guidelines have always allowed for kosher slaughter, and almost every kosher plant in North America regularly passes FMI audits.
Only Rubashkin, with its upside-down shechita using what seemed to be poorly maintained equipment and ill-trained workers, could not pass.
Further, the Journal claims that the audit is posted on the OU website for all to see. This is false. An audit summary is posted, but the actual audit which shows what was – and what was not – included is missing, as are the scores for each category of the audit.
By way of example, Rubashkin could have passed the audit with all "A's" or with all "C's" - or worse. (The actual scores are percentile-based.) We do not know and, unless Rubashkin and his rabbis release the actual audit, we probably never will.
Because what passes as reporting in much of the Jewish media is so poor – and this Jewish Journal piece is a clear example of that – neither the OU or Rubashkin needs to worry about releasing the full audit. They have been given what amounts to a free ride by Rob Eshman, Jason Maoz, Jonathan Mark, and the rest, and Rubashkin and the OU know it.
