Weiss has written for the New York Times Magazine,[7] Harper's Magazine,[8] Esquire, and the New York Observer.[9][10]

In 2006 he began writing a daily blog called Mondoweiss on The New York Observer website which began to focus on "Jewish issues" like "the Iraq disaster and my Jewishness, Zionism, neo-conservatism, Israel, Palestine." In the spring of 2007 he started Mondoweiss as an independent blog.[11][12]
