"The Jewish Media - The Lie That Won't Die"
« on: October 01, 2013, 09:22:08 AM »

When Marlon Brando declared on Larry King Live (4/5/96) that "Hollywood is owned by Jews," he only said what quite a few Americans believe. Since they don't know who owns the media, millions think that it's "the Jews."
 
It is an old canard. Having been codified in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (forged by Czarist cops in 1905), the lie was sold here by Henry Ford through the 1920s. ("The Twelfth Protocol," proclaimed his Dearborn Independent, "contains the entire plan of Control of the Press, reaching from the present time into the future when the Jewish World Government shall be established.")
 
In the 1930s, the lie was propagated much more broadly by a loose network of native fascists guided or inspired by Berlin. The best-known of those tools was Father Joseph Coughlin, whose Sunday broadcasts had an audience in the tens of millions, and whose weekly Social Justice had perhaps a third as many readers. Others fiercely seconded his thesis that the media were run by so-called "aliens"--a myth that, on the fringes, lasted through the war. "The motion picture industry," far-right demagogue Gerald L.K. Smith railed in 1945, "is being exploited by Russian Jewish Communists determined to inject their materialistic propaganda into the fresh young minds of our children."
 
Starting in the late 1930s, there was a notable attempt to set Americans straight. The radio cleric's charge that U.S. media were in the hands of "orientals" (one of his codewords) sparked a salutary counter-propaganda drive by academics, clergy and journalists. The Institute for Propaganda Analysis, based at Columbia University, publicly refuted the canard, as did Dorothy Thompson, whose syndicated column "On the Record" made clear to a massive public that the media were not "Jewish": not the press, not publishing, not even Hollywood, which was dominated not by those crude "moguls" but by New York's major banks, most run by WASPs.
 
Gentiles in High Places
 
Today, the myth may be as widespread as ever--and no one is refuting it. Every type of far-right propaganda luridly revives the spectre of the "Jewish media." In a pamphlet and website entitled "Who Owns America?" the prolific neo-Nazi William Pierce, author of The Turner Diaries, tells us that the news and "entertainment media" are "Jew-controlled," which is why they push miscegenation, homosexuality and other race-polluting practices.
 
Meanwhile, the same spectre haunts the propaganda churned out by the Nation of Islam and other Afro-fascists--all of whom Pierce's readership would like to string up from the streetlamps. Every time Khalid Abdul Muhammad vents in public, he and his audience exult together in the fiction that the whole shebang is "Jew-controlled."

All such diatribe plays up your Eisners and your Sulzbergers--and plays down many other names: Jack Welch and Michael H. Jordan, CEOs, respectively, of GE (NBC) and Westinghouse (CBS); Rupert Murdoch (who owns 20th Century Fox); John Malone, CEO of TCI, the nation's largest cable company; maverick globalist Ted Turner; and many more. Also tuned out are such goyische giants as Hearst Communications, Times Mirror, the Chicago Tribune's empire, Reader's Digest Inc.--and the Shintoist directorship of Sony (which owns Columbia Studios and Tri-Star Pictures).
 
The far-right media "critique" also ignores the role of major shareholders: buccaneers like Warren Buffett (Disney's largest investor); cyberlord Bill Gates (who owns a big piece of Dreamworks and MSNBC); Gordon Crawford, who manages the media holdings for the secretive Capital Group (which owns a chunk of every major player).
 
But more important, the far-right attack ignores the crucial point about today's media: Increasingly, their owners are publicly traded multinational corporations, chiefly answerable to banks, insurance companies and other institutional investors--and to advertisers, who are almost always the key source of revenue. Thus guided, corporate capitalism runs the show with no concern for any race or faith or for anything but profits.
 
Nixonian Jew-Baiting
 
While crackpot screeds have clearly riled up some explosive folk out on the margins, most of those who think "the Jews" control the media have probably been thus persuaded not by any neo-fascist agitation, but by the systematic rabble-rousing of some big-time pols and their supporters in the press.
 
The mass distrust of the alleged Hebraic cabal behind the media was first politically exploited at the highest levels by Richard Nixon, who sincerely hated that imaginary clique. He often raved to H.R. Haldeman about those "satanic Jews" atop the networks and the New York Times. Nixon's button-man in the campaign was his felonious understudy, Spiro Agnew, whose paranoid attack on the news media--"a tiny and closed fraternity of privileged men, elected by no one"--was tacitly anti-Semitic.
 
His animus became much more explicit after Agnew's forcible retirement: "All you have to do is look around and see who owns the networks, who owns the Washington Post, the New York Times," he declared in 1976. "As you look around in the big news business, you see a heavy concentration of Jewish people."
 
Agnew's assault on Big Media was both conceived and crafted by the young Pat Buchanan. Since then, Buchanan has ebulliently parlayed his media celebrity into a full-time political jihad against the media (among other targets), and has done so with a tang of anti-Semitism so pronounced that even William Buckley finally had to clear his throat.
 


Arnold Good, Murphy Bad
 
However, many a rightist less flamboyant than Buchanan has deployed the Coughlinesque innuendo. In his contretemps with Murphy Brown, Dan Quayle suggestively attacked the "cultural elite" who "mock us in newsrooms, sitcom studios and faculty lounges across America." Christlike, he declared: "I wear their scorn as a badge of honor!" The identity of these folks was left deliberately vague: "I know exactly who the cultural elite, the media elite and the Hollywood elite are," Quayle noted darkly. (Presumably he did not mean his his own family, which controls a billion-dollar media empire that includes the Arizona Republic and the Indianapolis Star.)
 
More recently, Bob Dole, pretending to take on Hollywood entire, swung his wrath pointedly and only at Time-Warner (CEO: Gerald Levin). At the same time, Dole praised as family-friendly the film True Lies, starring noted Aryan and cinematic serial killer Arnold Schwarzenegger. It is surely no coincidence that True Lies was released by 20th Century Fox--the studio owned by Rupert Murdoch, dark financial angel of the New York Post, the Weekly Standard and other founts of GOP propaganda.
 
Meanwhile, off the stump, the trope of the "the liberal media" has been copiously reconfirmed for years by countless rightist hacks and true believers. While "liberals" need not always stand for "Jews," the rhetorical strategy is the same in both cases: to distract attention from the real elite that actually controls the media by scapegoating the usual minority as conspiratorial outsiders.
 
Thus the time has come for another counter-propaganda drive--and not just to fight the rise of anti-Semitism, but to reaffirm democracy itself, which is again at risk.

Granted, this is old, but it's useful to revisit old stories.

The guns same out blazing, going after decades-old targets, like the Dearborn Independent and Father Coughlin.  It's interesting to note, that whenever, Henry Ford and Father Coughlin, have been attacked, their words haven't been refuted either.  Such is the state of Yid smear tactics.

A favorite part of this article, as this name was always brought up as counter to the accusations of Jew domination of the media, especially at the executive level.  Mention of Ted Turner was supposed to silence all debate on the subject.  Well, there's been time evaluate.  In 1985, Ted Turner was organizing a bid for CBS.  (All major networks were headed by Jews, at the time.)  This sent shockwaves.  Daniel Schorr, who had previously worked for Turner, felt that he could be a loose cannon (not exactly untrue!).  However, it was a question of whose interests this was being referenced.  Schorr called William Paley (born Palinsky) to prevent goy ownership.  Of course, that transfer to Laurence Tisch.  The tale is described in greater detail here:

http://theunjustmedia.com/Media/Six%20Jewish%20Companies%20Control%2096%25%20of%20the%20World%E2%80%99s%20Media.htm

Fast forward to more recent times.  CNN, as part of AOL Time Warner, fell into the hands of Gerald Levin.  Ted Turner sometimes carps from the sidelines.  Anything about the Palestinians would not be greeted warmly by the on air staff.

Back to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting.  Who are they?  They fashioned themselves as a liberal watchdog of news stories.  Kind of joke that there needs to be an organization to complain that the news isn't liberal enough.  Of course, it was founded by a Jew.

Jeff Cohen
 FAIR founder
 
Jeff Cohen founded FAIR in 1986. He served as the group's executive director for a number of years, and later on its board of directors. Upon taking a full time job with MSNBC in May 2002, Cohen stepped down from FAIR's board. At MSNBC, Cohen was a senior producer on Donahue and an on-air commentator. Over the years, he has been a frequent guest on national TV and radio, including Today, Larry King Live, Donahue, C-SPAN and NPR. Formerly, he was a regular panelist on Fox News Channel's News Watch. He has served as the co-host of CNN's Crossfire. He has been quoted on issues of media and politics in such publications as the New York Times, Washington Post and TV Guide, and his columns have appeared in such dailies as USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe and Miami Herald. For four years, he co-wrote the weekly, nationally syndicated Media Beat column with Norman Solomon for Creators Syndicate. Cohen is the author and co-author of five books — Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media (2006); Wizards of Media Oz: Behind the Curtain of Mainstream News (1997); Through the Media Looking Glass: Decoding Bias and Blather in the News (1995); The Way Things Aren't: Rush Limbaugh's Reign of Error (1995); and Adventures in Medialand: Behind the News, Beyond the Pundits (1993). Prior to launching FAIR in 1986, Cohen worked in Los Angeles as a journalist, and as a lawyer for the ACLU. His investigative articles ran in Rolling Stone, New Times, Mother Jones and other publications. He was a board member of several public interest groups, including the ACLU of Southern California and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference/L.A. Cohen did undergraduate work at the University of Michigan and did his legal studies at the Peoples College of Law in Los Angeles. He became a member of the California Bar in 1981.

FAIR is not as prominent as they once were, but, again, it's worthwhile to go back to the times when there was a stronger stranglehood on information or in this case, misinformation.

This requires some rebuttals.

Funny how Marlon Brando was forced to apologize.  This wasn't long after British writer, William Cash, was heavily criticized for article, referring to Hollywood as "a Jewish cabal."  If none of this is true, why doth they protest too much?

An old ADL cliché.

Henry Ford and Father Coughlin must've ruffled a lot of feathers to be mentioned so frequently up to the present day.  Never heard of the Gerald L.K. Smith, but he must've also been doing decent work to infuriate the same crowd, especially if they have to resort to hurling the "far right" tag.

Maybe the author of this article should've researched how Hollywood actually came into being.  A gaggle of Jews stole Thomas Edison's invention, and took it as far west as possible to avoid lawsuits.  Old "canards" weren't needed when they behaved in stereotypical fashion.  Soon, all of the studio heads were Jews, with the exception of Disney.  We all know what happened after old Walt died.

New York banks were "run by WASPs."  Yeah, OK.  It must've been WASPs who engineered the stock market crash.    :o

If that were the case, wouldn't the figures be a little more proportionate with the relative percentage of the general population?  Of course, they've always got an answer.  Never mind.

Mention of Pierce, with associated propaganda boost from the Oklahoma City bombing false flag, is supposed to deter people from examing the issue.  No doubt the networks are dominated by Jews.  Emphasis on miscegenation, homosexuality and abortion is not a matter of dispute.  It doesn't appear that this author attempts to dispute it either.  He simply changes the subject to the National of Islam.

Quote

Meanwhile, the same spectre haunts the propaganda churned out by the Nation of Islam and other Afro-fascists--all of whom Pierce's readership would like to string up from the streetlamps. Every time Khalid Abdul Muhammad vents in public, he and his audience exult together in the fiction that the whole shebang is "Jew-controlled."

Apparently, the Nation of Islam was more acceptable when their main message was Blame Whitey.  Since they started investigating control of the Atlantic slave trade up, through the Civil Rights era, up to promotion of Gangsta Rap, Jewish hands have been manipulating blacks for centuries.  Then, it was hard not to notice how Louis Farrakhan no longer made appearances on TV.

As if Eisner and Sulzberger are the only names at the heads of top media companies!  Jack Welsh had more direct leadership of GE's other ventures.  So, really does this name need to be included?  We've since come to realize that Rupert Murdoch had a Jewish mother, making him a Jew under Jewish law.  The constant barrage of Zionist propaganda from his holdings is only icing on the cake.  His Fox News was a major player at selling the bogus "war on terror," a term coined by the obnoxious Jew, Netanyahu.

Wouldn't that be something if Buffett and Gates turned out to be cryptos?   8)

Good deflection, but it's still curious of the proportion of Jews in top positions and then other roles.  Discriminatory hiring practices couldn't play a part.  Nahhhh.   Nevertheless, it's impossible not to see the connection between Jewish domination in the media and Hollywood along with the promotion of cultural Marxism.

Ironic since Henry Makow has written almost exactly the same thing, on his website, as Nixon said about "satanic Jews."  Supposedly, Agnew's words were "anti semetic," but were they true?

 [quoteHis animus became much more explicit after Agnew's forcible retirement: "All you have to do is look around and see who owns the networks, who owns the Washington Post, the New York Times," he declared in 1976.

Yes, these words were true.

That's right.  Pat Buchanan has been a thorn in their side for a long time.

Keep in mind that this piece came out in 1996.  Dan Quayle hadn't been anywhere near the public eye in over 5 years.  This clown still had to recycle Murphy Brown though.

The author could've rested easily, since 1996 brought the re-election of the candidate more to Hollywood's liking.  Maybe there are statistics of larger campaign donations from that region?

The media is liberal to the extent that it is Jew controlled.  It's a consequence.

Hooray.  A cheer for democracy.  Talk about demagoguery.  America isn't a true democracy anyway.  The Constitution defines it as a republic.  The Constitution, not being talmudic in nature, is over the short-term "a living document" to the Jewdiciary branch and the ACLJew.  Once it is undermined enough, it will be discarded.  The country already operates more as an oligarchy.  How free can the people really be with a system of private banks, in charge of the issuance of currency with interest?  In 1996, it would've been much more difficult for the average citizen to ascertain the ownership structure of the Federal Reserve.  Now that it's known, it's also obvious who's behind more than their share of problems facing the nation...and the world.
