Notable stories

In June 2009, Tablet's podcast, Vox Tablet, ran a piece by reporter Eric Molinsky, about the unknown history of the Jewish actresses who were Bollywood's biggest stars in the 1920s and 1930s. The piece was one of three that won Tablet its first National Magazine Award.

In April 2010, Tablet's blogger, Marc Tracy, wrote a humorous post arguing the cookie dough ought to be kosher for Passover, as it, too, is unleavened. The post was one of several that won Tablet its second National Magazine Award.

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.[1]


Tablet has won two National Magazine Awards.
