Seven Jewish Americans
Control Most US Media

  •         "Today, seven Jewish Americans run the vast majority of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry, the book publishing industry, and the recording industry. Most of these industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following seven individuals:
    Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner
    Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company
    Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd
    Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company Ltd and head of Universal Studios
    Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc
    Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric
    Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation Limited
    Those seven Jewish men collectively control ABC, NBC, CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records, Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal Records, and Interscope Records.
    Most of the larger independent newspapers are owned by Jewish interests as well. An example is media mogul is Samuel I. "Si" Newhouse, who owns two dozen daily newspapers from Staten Island to Oregon, plus the Sunday supplement Parade; the Conde Nast collection of magazines, including Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Allure, GQ, and Self; the publishing firms of Random House, Knopf, Crown, and Ballantine, among other imprints; and cable franchises with over one million subscribers."
    I could add that Michael Eisner could depart Disney tomorrow but the company will remain in the hands of Shamrock Holdings, whose principal office is now located in Israel".
    . . . (article from Reuters cut out here for this version as the article was dated. This article was on the Bronfman interests buying Time-Warner; the buying and selling has been fast and furious, but Jewish control of the media has remained a constant since this article was written in 2003) . . .

    Hi Jeff -
          I am Jewish and I take exception to some of the articles you post on your site.
           However, this particular article is staggering in its implications. It is said there are less than 15 million Jews on the planet. Most of us...and I know a lot of people... are kind, normal and not megalomaniacal in our approach to life.
            When someone of ANY religious or political persuasion reads this story and then also factors in the dominance of Jews in finance and the economy, government, science, the medical profession, the legal profession - in fact all the professions - one has to come away pondering how such staggering influence has been acquired by such a microscopic percent of the world's 7 BILLION people.
    ( comment: Donna's perception of Jewish dominance in science and "all professions" is a bit overboard, but the achievements of Jewish individuals is indeed impressive in many fields; the issue with regards to domination of the mass media is whether such influence is good or bad for the USA and the world.)
              For ANY group to wield such power clearly and obviously injects profound bias and skewing into all areas of a nation so dominated. Is there a Zionist/Jewish bias in Western society and especially the US? Is grass green? It is often whispered that Baron Rothschild really owns and controls Great Britain. It is reported that 7 of the 8 oligarch/gangsters who control most of Russia are Jews . . . probably hard core Zionists. (Maybe Putin is trying to prevent a total Zionist takeover of Russia with the Lukos oil magnate's arrest?)
              And then look at the Zionist Jewish near domination of the Bush administration (no coincidence, that) and the more than one trillion dollars the kindly American people have given to Israel in 'loan guarantees'...not a penny of which has ever...or will ever... be paid back.
              I could go on but it when a Jew starts to point out the facts and connect the dots, he or she is quickly smeared as 'self-hating' and so forth.
              Well, this Jew is an American first and I'm hoping you continue to post factual articles like this on your site. Thank you.

    (Final note from on this article: Jeff Rense is a first rate intellect and investigator. He has been called the intelligent man's Art Bell. He also posts an incredible amount of articles on his website. In this case, however, unless someone can verify that Donna Halperin is a real person and actually feels this way, it occurs to us that this article could have either been an attempt to tweak the reader and Jeff Rense himself with the dominance of Jewish influence in the Big media and other fields; OR -- it could have been a non-Jew making up the above letter to try and bolster the credibility of the original article. In any case, this is the way the article appeared on .
