Jewish revisionist Israel Shamir, from a Talk given in the House of Lords, Westminster, on February 23, 2005:
London became a faceless cosmopolitan city, your cinema is destroyed, your streets are taken by international chains of shops, your newspapers belong to Zionists...
your media, the mind and the nervous system of the nation, is hijacked by Zionists...
In my book – that is the one I came to promote – I try to explain why the Jews have a special place in the Imperial conscience. Superficially, one can explain it by personalities, by the special position of the Neo-cons in Washington and of the Jewish media-lords in the US and elsewhere. Jews indeed own, control and edit a big share of mass media, this mainstay of Imperial thinking...
There are friends and enemies of the Empire in all your major political parties, and equally all the parties are Zionist-infiltrated.

Israeli journalist and activist Uri Avnery:
Aren't the utterances of the prime minister of Malaysia, Mahathir bin Muhammad, about the Jews controlling the world, anti-Semitic?
Yes and no. They certainly illustrate the difficulty of pinning anti-Semitism down. From a factual point of view, the man was right when he asserted that the Jews have a far bigger influence than their percentage of the world's population alone would warrant. It is true that the Jews have a large influence on the policy of the United States, as well as on the American and international media.

Media Dominance

The Jewish role in American media has long been a topic of discussion. In the early 1920s, Henry Ford issued a number of scathing critiques of Jewish control in newspapers, radio, theater, and motion pictures.209 In the midst of World War Two, Joseph Goebbels commented on their influence in his personal diary: “Some statistics are given to me on the proportion of Jews in American radio, film, and press. The percentage is truly frightening. Jewry controls 100% of the film business, and between 90 and 95% of press and radio.” 210 Though perhaps an exaggeration, such numbers give some indication of Jewish dominance at the time.

Without question, their role has strengthened over time. As a general measure we can refer to Lipset and Raab’s (1995: 27) claim that nearly 60 percent of leading directors, producers, and writers, in both television and cinema, are Jews. This is reflected in Jewish influence in the major media corporations. Here are the largest in the United States, along with their leading executives:

1) Time-Warner: Jeff Bewkes, Jeff Zucker.

2) Disney: Robert Iger (for the previous 20 years, Michael Eisner).

3) 21st Century Fox and News Corp: Rupert, James, and Lachlan Murdoch.

4) Viacom: Sumner Redstone, Philippe Dauman.

5) CBS Corp: Sumner Redstone, Leslie Moonves.

6) Comcast/NBC: Brian Roberts, David Cohen, Mark Lazarus, and Robert Greenblatt.

All these individuals are Jewish. 211 This general power structure has been in place for much of the past three decades.

Of special interest is the status of the three major American television networks, each of which is firmly under Jewish control: Disney owns ABC, Comcast owns NBC, and CBS — previously owned by Viacom — is now an independent but still Jewish-run enteiprise. There are two additional major news channels: CNN and Fox News. CNN is owned by Time-Warner, and Fox News by 21st Century Fox. 212 Thus there are no truly independent major television or news networks left in the US.

Regarding print media, Jewish influence has an especially long history. It goes back at least to the late 19th century, when Adolph Ochs purchased the New York Times in 1896. The Times has been pro-Israel and pro-Zionist ever since; the current owner, publisher and chairman is Arthur Sulzberger. Alsatian Jew Eugene Meyer purchased the Washington Post in 1933. Both the current publisher — his great-granddaughter Katharine Weymouth — and chief editor Martin Baron are Jewish. Until recently purchased by the Zionist Murdoch, the Wall Street Journal was owned by the Jewish Kann family. Mort Zuckerman owns the New York Daily News, the third-largest New York paper. Ownership and management at other major papers have varied recently, but it has widely been observed for years that such papers as the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune have reflexively supported Jewish and Israeli views.

Regarding magazines and journals, the Condé Nast empire — which includes Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Wired, and Vogue — is owned by Samuel ("Si") Newhouse.213 In addition to the New York Daily News, Zuckerman also owns US News and World Report. Other periodicals, such as The New Republic, Commentary, and The Weekly Standard, are chronically pro-Israel and pro-Jewish.

As to radio, perhaps the most striking example is National Public Radio. Anecdotally, the on-air staff at NPR is over half Jewish.214 Is it not uncommon to hear a Jewish program host interviewing a Jewish expert about some other prominent Jewish-American. References to the Holocaust or Judaism pop up frequently, even in stories that have no ostensible connection. And NPR's influence is substantial. Affiliate stations are widely distributed throughout the country, reaching some 26 million listeners. With 860 stations — an average of 17 per state — it is often possible to pick up identical programming on three or more stations simultaneously. In response to charges that NPR is pro-Israel or pro-Jewish, Jewish groups launch counter-attacks, preposterously claiming that it is pro-Muslim or pro-Arab. Station managers thus get complaints from both sides, and thus falsely conclude that their coverage is ‘about right.’ It seems that a strong offense is often the best defense.

Finally, there is considerable Jewish influence in a number of other technology companies which, though not strictly media, nonetheless play an important role in the media infrastructure. The three clearest such examples are (1) Google, run by Sergey Brin and Larry Page; (2) Facebook, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg; and (3) Oracle, led by Lany Ellison and co-CEO Safra Catz. Others of significance include Michael Dell, owner and CEO of Dell Computer. Wikipedia, managed by co-founders Jimmy Wales and Lila Tretikov, is notably sensitive to Jewish and Israeli concerns. Participant Media is run by founder Jeff Skoll, formerly of eBay. The software company Asana is run by Facebook castoffs Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein. And debate continues to swirl around Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, regarding whether or not he is Jewish.

A new poll claims 62% of Americans believe that social media monopolies have too much control over the news people see. This poll comes out during a huge, coordinated campaign by these companies to silence any ideas they consider "extreme" or "radical" which is almost exclusively conservative. These companies down-rank independent news sources as well as stories reported by mainstream conservative outlets.

Re: Media bias, control, & censorship / quotes of note

According to a book by Benjamin Ginsberg on the Jewish role in anti-German resistance during WWII, during the 1930s and 40s, Jews had a lot of power in the US media. In the 1930s before WWII broke out, Jews held back somewhat on using their media control to spread anti-German propaganda as they believed that it could turn the US public against Jews.
The Movies

In addition to the aforementioned activities, Jews played a very important role in producing films and other forms of entertainment that echoed the Roosevelt administration’s anti-German and pro-British stance. Most of America’s major film studios—Paramount, Twentieth Century Fox, MGM, Warner Brothers, and so forth—had been founded and were owned by Jews.24 Jewish filmmakers, as well as newspaper columnists and radio personalities, especially those associated with the FFF, were quite happy to attack Nazism and present Great Britain in a positive light. During the early and mid-1930s, to be sure, Jewish filmmakers and broadcasters had been reluctant to take a strong position on Germany for fear of sparking an anti-Semitic backlash in the United States.

Joseph Breen, head of Hollywood’s Production Code Administration (PCA), often warned Hollywood’s Jews against using their influence in the industry to make anti-Nazi and “Communistic” propaganda films.25 Breen’s predecessor, Will Hays, held a similar view and had blocked production of several films deemed offensive to Nazi Germany, such as an adaptation of Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here, as well as the antiwar film Idiot’s Delight, which criticized Mussolini’s invasion of Ethiopia. The film was eventually shown but only after scenes to which the Italian government objected were cut.26

In 1938, though, independent filmmaker and FFF member Walter Wanger produced Blockade, a film that criticized Francisco Franco, and Personal History (later re-released as Foreign Correspondent), which questioned German treatment of the Jews. Both films touched off a good deal of controversy and were condemned by isolationists and pro-German groups as “Jewish propaganda,” but the dam had been breached. Wanger’s films effectively led the way for the major Hollywood Jewish executives, particularly Jack Warner, to take on the same topics. At the end of 1938, Warner Brothers released Confessions of a Nazi Spy. The film was inspired by the actual case of a group of German spies who had come to the United States and were subsequently caught and convicted of espionage. When the film project was first being discussed, the German consul in Los Angeles wrote to the PCA urging that the project not be undertaken lest it lead to unspecified “difficulties.”27 Warner went ahead with the film and, indeed, put it in the hands of a staunchly anti-Nazi production crew. Confessions was directed by Anatol Litvak, a German Jewish émigré, and starred Edward G. Robinson, a Jewish actor active in the Hollywood anti-Nazi movement, and Paul Lucas, another German Jewish émigré. In the film, Nazi Germany is depicted as intent on world domination and presenting a clear and present danger to the United States. Robinson, in the role of an FBI agent, asserts that through espionage and subversion, Germany has already embarked on a war against the United States. Toward the conclusion of the film, the audience is warned that continued isolationism will leave the United States and its way of life vulnerable to German attack from within and without.

By 1940, Hollywood studios were producing many feature films and film shorts promoting American rearmament and attacking Germany. Warner Brothers offered to make any film short on the need for military preparedness free of charge. At the Roosevelt administration’s request, MGM produced a film on foreign and defense policy titled Eyes of the Navy, which dramatically presented the importance of a strong national defense and an activist foreign policy. Other studios followed with films bearing such titles as I Wanted Wings, Dive Bomber, Flight Command, Navy Blues, Buck Private, and Tanks a Million. Even the comedy team of Abbott and Costello promoted preparedness with their humorous depiction of national military service, Caught in the Draft. Other important films presenting anti-German themes or warning of the need for preparedness included A Yank in the R.A.F., in which a young American flier shows his countrymen how to fight the Nazis, and Warner Brothers’ Sergeant York, the story of America’s greatest World War I hero, Alvin York, who put aside his pacifism to serve his country. York himself attended the film’s New York premiere along with Eleanor Roosevelt and General John Pershing. York declared that if Americans stopped fighting for freedom, “then we owe the memory of George Washington an apology.”28

President Roosevelt personally thanked the movie industry for its “splendid cooperation with all who are directing the expansion of our defense forces.” The White House showed its gratitude to Hollywood by ordering the Justice Department to settle, on terms favorable to the studios, an antitrust suit it had brought against the major film producers a few years earlier. Roosevelt also intervened to secure a reduced sentence for Joseph Schenk, head of Twentieth Century Fox, who had been convicted of income tax evasion.29

The increasingly anti-German and interventionist perspective presented by the film studios in 1940 was echoed by important segments of the news media, particularly the radio networks. Two of the most important networks, CBS and NBC, embodied the pro-British, anti-German alliance between America’s Jews and establishment Protestants. These networks were owned by Jews, while their most important news broadcasters and journalists were such establishment figures as Edward R. Murrow and William Shirer. Murrow’s broadcasts from London during the Blitz brought the war and the plight of the British people into every American home.

In 1938, 1939, and even early 1940, isolationism had been a powerful force in the United States. When the European war began, even many Americans who had little love for Nazi Germany were dubious of American involvement in Europe and reluctant to spill American blood for the defense of Great Britain or, particularly, Soviet Russia. By late 1940 and early 1941, however, the relentless media and public information campaign conducted by the FFF, ADL, AJC, and other groups had weakened and discredited isolationist and anti-interventionist forces, as well as those who advocated appeasement of Nazi Germany. By late 1940 and early 1941, the polls showed increasing public support for the administration’s desire to intervene in the war on behalf of Great Britain.30

Wartime Propaganda

During the war, the Roosevelt administration established a number of agencies designed to mobilize popular sentiment, bolster civilian morale, and encourage military service. The largest of these was the Office of War Information (OWI), whose mission was the enhancement of public understanding of the war, coordination of government information activities, and oversight and liaison with the press, radio, and motion pictures.72 In other words, the OWI was in charge of coordinating wartime propaganda. The OWI’s Bureau of Publications, which employed a number of Jewish writers, such as Samuel Lubell, produced pamphlets and essays on topics relevant to the war effort.

Lubell, who later became a well-known pollster, wrote a 123-page pamphlet titled Battle Stations for All, designed to explain to ordinary Americans how taxation, rationing, and bonds contributed to winning the war.73 Similarly, the OWI’s Domestic Radio Bureau worked with the radio networks to encourage popular entertainers to incorporate war-related themes into their acts. At the OWI’s behest, Jack Benny told his audience, “When we buy those bonds, remember we’re not doing the government a favor. We’re the government! This is my war, and your war! So let’s get rolling.”74

Among the most important offices within the OWI was the Bureau of Motion Pictures (BMP), which was charged with seeking to ensure that the movie industry would help to promote the nation’s war effort. According to published BMP guidelines, the first question filmmakers were to ask themselves before beginning a project was, “Will this picture help win the war?”75

Not unlike their Russian counterparts, Hollywood’s large cadre of Jewish studio heads, producers, and directors needed little urging to join the war effort. Between 1941 and 1945, the studios focused on such themes as the danger posed by Nazi Germany and its Japanese ally, the threat of foreign spies and saboteurs, the need for national unity, the importance of American leadership in the world, patriotism and sacrifice, and, above all, the indomitable American spirit. Once aroused, said Hollywood, Americans would show their mettle and bring Hitler and his friends to their knees. To be sure, not all wartime movie propaganda was produced by Jews. The Italian-born Frank Capra’s Why We Fight series of short documentaries is an obvious example. But most of the great propaganda films of this era were written, produced, or directed (or all three) by Hollywood’s Jewish filmmakers. Indeed, even several of Capra’s films were written by Julius and Philip Epstein.

A film that presents many of the main themes of World War II propaganda is, of course, Warner Brothers’ 1942 feature Casablanca, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Casablanca was produced by Hal Wallis, directed by Michael Curtiz, and written by Julius and Philip Epstein and Howard Koch, all members of Hollywood’s Jewish film community. In this film, Bogart portrays Rick Blaine, an embittered American who owns Rick’s Café in Casablanca, then under the rule of the Vichy regime. Gathered at the café are refugees from Nazism from many lands. Though Rick claims to be an apolitical cynic, it turns out that he, like America itself, fought against the Germans before and only needs to be reminded of his duty. The reminder comes in the form of Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman), Blaine’s long-lost love, who arrives at Rick’s with her husband, Czech freedom fighter Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). Laszlo reawakens Rick’s latent heroism and resolve. Rick decides to reenter the fight against Nazism, even though it means giving up Ilsa. He tells her that the stakes outweigh their own love and lives. Rick tells Ilsa he has a “job to do,” a phrase often heard by Americans in the military.76

Rick even inspires the sleazy, collaborationist French commandant, Captain Renault (Claude Raines), to join him in the battle against the Germans. Thus, the film intimates, Americans need to be reminded of their duty and must put personal concerns aside for the duration of the war. Inspired by American leadership, moreover, the other nations of the world—even the sometimes craven French—will do their duty as well. With America reawakened, the outcome is no longer in doubt. “I know our side will win,” Laszlo tells Rick as they part.

Another well-known film that presents a number of propaganda themes is Paramount’s 1943 So Proudly We Hail!. Directed by Mark Sandrich (born Mark Goldstein), the film tells the story of a group of military nurses sent to the Philippines at the beginning of World War II. The nurses’ convoy is attacked by the Japanese; when they reach their destination, their camp is shelled; they suffer many hardships as they endeavor to provide care for wounded soldiers. In a dramatic scene, one nurse gives her life to allow her friends to escape the advancing Japanese. The surviving nurses are finally evacuated and dream of someday resuming their normal lives. The film depicts Americans as heroic and ready to sacrifice for their friends and country. The enemy is shown as brutal and merciless. An idyllic future is possible if Americans continue to work together to win the war. So Proudly We Hail! was the only World War II film to give women a lead role in combat settings. The presence of the women underscores the film’s theme of national unity. One nurse receives a letter from her husband explaining, “You were kids from all walks of life—all classes—all kinds of people. This is ... the people’s war because they have taken it over and are going to win it.”77

For the most part, the Hollywood studios operated more or less independently of the government, though they submitted scripts for review and consulted with various civilian and military agencies on their propriety. One 1942 feature film, however, was actually commissioned by the OWI. This was the documentary film The World at War, produced and edited by Samuel Spewack and distributed to theaters through MGM, Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount, Warner Brothers, and RKO. The film makes use mainly of newsreel material to trace the origins and history of the war and to explain to Americans the need to fight the Axis. The film revisits the years before the war when the German American Bund and isolationists, such as senators Nye and Wheeler, sought, according to the film, to confuse Americans and leave them unprepared to defend their nation. The World at War goes on to show German and Japanese atrocities, some of the footage taken directly from Nazi films. After viewing the film, New York Times film critic Bosley Crowther wrote in 1942, “Spread across the face of America, The World at War should stimulate a grim resolve.”78

Retrospectively, World War II is sometimes seen as “the good war,” a conflict that united Americans in the face of an existential threat. In point of fact, Americans were deeply divided before the Japanese attack and not definitively united after Pearl Harbor. Partisan and ethnic differences could well have become the basis for wartime division, especially as the human and pecuniary costs of the war escalated.79 One key to American unity during the war was the fact that Americans were the recipients of a steady diet of material emphasizing the need to support the war effort. From the radio, the cartoons, and the movies, the nation learned that Americans must buy bonds, pay taxes, serve in the military, and fight until “the job” was done. As for the Jews, part of their job was to make sure the nation focused on its job.

Times of Israel: Facebook bans harmful stereotypes about Jews ‘running the world’

Postby Lamprecht » 5 months 1 week ago (Sun Aug 16, 2020 8:39 am)

Just a few weeks after the #NoDenyingIt campaign was launched, the Jewish CEO of Facebook has declared that any allegation of "Jewish people running the world" is "hate speech" and must be banned.
It's like poetry :lol:

From the "Times of Israel":
Facebook bans harmful stereotypes about Jews ‘running the world’

Companies urged to adopt International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance of definition
By Mathilde Frot
August 12, 2020

Facebook announced this week a new ban on some forms of “implicit hate speech” including harmful stereotypes about Jews “running the world.”

The social media giant, which according to Reuters counts 2.7 billion monthly active users, revealed on Tuesday changes to its hate speech policy.
The policy update will prohibit some “harmful stereotypes that have historically been used to attack, intimidate or exclude specific group”, Facebook said.

The ban includes depictions of “Jewish people running the world or controlling major institutions such as media networks, the economy or the government”, as well as racist caricatures of Black people in the form of blackface.

Facebook executive Guy Rosen said such depictions have “always gone against the spirit of our hate speech policies but it can be really difficult to take concepts, especially those that are commonly expressed in imagery and define them in a way that allows our content reviewers based around the world to consistently and fairly identify violations.”

The move follows a consultation in the past year with dozens of experts, including historians, social psychologists, and communal groups, he said.
Facebook’s community standards report says the platform took action against 9.6 million posts containing hate speech between January and March.

In the second quarter, the number went up to 22.5 million posts – of which 94.5 percent was detected before online users reported it, the report says.

With the internet for the most part replacing television, it is important to know who controls the most popular websites used by millions every day. The following article claims to be a response to Pakistanis posting online that they will boycott Jewish products. In the article, the author gloats that it's impossible to boycott Jewish products on the internet because so many of the largest websites are owned and/or created by Jews. The article is from 2016 so a few of the CEO's might have changed, but skimming through it I can't find any inaccuracies.
1) Google
It was founded by Larry Page, Sergey Brin in 1998. Both are Jews. Bismillah yahan se karen, and try to boycott this website, try to live an internet life without using Google or any of its subsidiary websites.

2) Facebook
You read it right. It was a Jew who founded that website in 2004. Repeating it again, Mark Zuckerberg is a Jew, don't use that website from today. He also owns Instagram so count that website owned by a Jew too.

3) YouTube
Damn, this is going to be hard for you to boycott. But let me tell you YouTube's CEO Susan Wojcicki is also a Jew. Try not to watch YouTube videos from today and stick to its poor-duplicate Pakistani versions.

4) Wikipedia
Yo bro. The website that help you make your assignments most of the times, is also founded by a Jew. Jimmy Wales is a Jew.

5) Ask.com
You might open this website too sometimes if you are a college graduate and look for ready made answers for your assignments. Bad news for you, this was also founded by a Jew, Garrett Gruener.

6) Tumblr
How can we forget this blogging platform. Just for your knowledge, this platform is also founded by a Jew, David Karp.

7) NetFlix
Even though Netflix is not much popular in Pakistan, yet it is one of the most popular website. So for your surprise, this is also founded by a Jew, Reed Hastings.

8 ) Wix.com
Poor souls use this website to create their miserable and free websites. This is also founded by a Jew, Avishai Abrahami.

9) Quora.com
You might have never opened this website directly, but search engines have shown you Quora links for your search query. Well, this one is also owned by a Jew, Adam D’Angelo. Another website like this is Answers.com that is also owned by a Jew, Bob Rosenschein.

10) Twitter
Yo boys, Twitter is also co-founded by a Jew, Noah Glass. How about a boycott, ummm? But I guess it is going to be hard for you, nai?

11) Vimeo
Yes, Vimeo, the video service most of you use to uploaded their videos in HD, and your portfolios among other stuff. This one is also founded by a Jew, Zach Klein.

12) Yahoo
Damn, this should not be owned by Jews at least. We all used Yahoo Messenger for casual chit chat. But hey, Current CEO Marissa Mayer, and even previous CEO, both are Jews.

13) Pinterest
Yup, this fancy website is also founded and owned by a Jew, Ben Silbermann. It might be easy to boycott it because Pakistanis don't even know how to use this website.

14) eHow.com
This one also pops up most of times in search engines and it is quite popular website too. And a news for you is, it is also founded by a Jew, Richard Rosenblatt.

15) DailyMotion.com
This YouTube's alternative is also founded and owned by a Jew, Benjamin Bejbaum. Please try boycotting this website, at least this one.

16) Linkedin
Jobless souls, I found you so active on Linkedin these days. But hey, do you know this website is also founded by a Jew, Reid Hoffman. Even though this got recently acquired by Microsoft, but what you have been up to all these days?

17) PayPal
Even though this website is not officially available for Pakistanis, yet this is one of the most used websites in Pakistan, and Pakistanis keep on looking tricks to use this website using Payoneer, a relative in abroad, or other tricks. But hey, the CEO of PayPal is a Jew, Dan Schulman.

18) SnapChat
I just love those dog filters, probably you too. But why don't you boycott this application as it is also founded by a Jew, Evan Spiegel.

I am just tired writing the list now, as there are so many more websites and popular smartphone applications that are founded and owned by Jews, like Reditt, Imgur, Getty Images, Adobe etc.

Gallup: Americans Remain Distrustful of Mass Media

Postby Lamprecht » 3 days 1 hour ago (Thu Jan 21, 2021 11:32 am)

Most Americans do not trust the mass media according to Gallup polls. What is most notable however is that for the past decade the number has not changed all that much, but republican trust in the media is at its lowest point (just 10% and clearly dropping) whereas democrats trust the media a lot more than they did 5 or 10 years ago. Media trust for independents has also experienced a long-term drop as well.

The supplementary PDF also shows that the age group of 35-54 has less trust in the media and that White Americans are also less likely to trust the media when compared to non-Whites (The "Non-White" category was not broken into separate ethnicities).
