Do Jews run the main stream media?
Before writing about the main stream media, I usually preface it with some facts from a post in April 2012. Tomorrow’s post will be a companion piece to my previous post: “Do Jews run Hollywood.” If they do, and I think the evidence suggests they do, then the question becomes have they been good stewards of the Fourth Estate? Have they hindered democratic discussion through systematic distortion of communication? Here the cases of people like Rick Sanchez, Ashley Banfield, Amber Lyon, Sheila MacVicar, and Peter Arnett loom large. Certainly if you cannot discuss whether Jews run the mass media, in particular the news portion, then democracy does not exist. What are the facts?
The following is a short list of Jews in the main stream media:
