About That 'Jewish Controlled Media'
As you know, I normally only publish anonymous troll comments when there's something interesting to be learned. This is going to be an exception, because not only did the person in question submit something worthy of examining, but he had the courage to actually sign his name, or at least his pseudonym with a link to his site.One has to give him a smidgeon of credit for that much.
Mark Traina, who according to his site wants to run for governor of his state ( no links, but you can likely find it for yourself if you want to waste the time)left this comment over at Joshuapundit, which I've edited very slightly for obvious reasons:
Suddenly KNOCKING WHITE PEOPLE OUT is a very serious “HATE CRIME”, but only if YOUNG BLACK SAVAGES are ATTACKING JEWS!
NAAWP: BOYCOTTS MSNBC, CNN, HLN, CNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, the HUFF POST, the NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES TIMES and the “I must not tell a TRUTH” GEORGE WASHINGTON POST!
FACT: The LIBERAL JEWISH ZIONIST MEDIA controls 96% of AMERICAS MEDIA OUTLETS and 97% of the WORLD’S MEDIA OUTLETS! Now that the JEWS are getting “KOED” they suddenly give a $HYT!
The BEST WAY for WHITE AMERICANS to get even with all those ZIONIST ASSOLES is to STOP WATCHING their PROGRAMS and BOYCOTT their SPONSORS, in particular GENERAL MOTORS and GENERAL ELECTRIC!
YES, many THREATS have been made against my LIFE, but F*CK IT, I am NEVER gonna STOP ATTACKING those LYING ZIONIST LIBTURDS!
Ah, me. As if MSNBC is 'pro-Zionist' and not anti-Israel!
Nevertheless, I thought it would be worthwhile to examine this, since the fantasy of a secret cabal of Jews running the media seems to stoke the fires of fantasy in the warped heart of many an 'anti-Zionist'.
So let's look at it, shall we?
'Jews control the media'?
Well, let's take a look at who runs the media. There's Roger Ailes,who runs FOX and his boss Rupert Murdoch, neither of whom are Jews, and who have Saudi Prince Taleed as a major stockholder. There's Steve Burke, CEO of NBC/Comcast...not a Jew, which is interesting considering that our friend here cites MSNBC as running 'pro Jew' content.For that matter, Phil Griffin, who presides over MSNBC and takes Burke's orders isn't Jewish either.
The Tribune company, who owns a number of America's newspapers including the Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times and the Miami Herald? Ummm, that's mostly owned by two corporations, Oaktree Financial, whose CEO is Howard Marks and Angelo-Gordan, run by John Angelo and Michael Gordon. Not a Jew in the bunch. And most of their content could hardly be termed 'pro-Zionist'. The reverse, in fact.
Talk radio? Cumulus Media, the colossus that syndicates the majority of the top talk radio content is run by one Lewis J. Dickey...not Jewish. The biggest names in talk radio are Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, with Glenn Beck a close third. None of them are Jews either, although they are pro-Israel, as anyone with America's best interests at heart and with a sense of justice would be.
The New York Times? Please, my sides. Yes, it's run by Jews all right...the harshly anti-Israel Sulzbergers. A casual glance at the paper should put to rest any fears our friend Mr. Traina has about 'Zionist controlled media' over at Pravda-on-the-Hudson..
Those foreign media outlets..well, there's the BBC(UK), NHK (Japan). CBC (Canada), ABC (Australia), PBS/NPR, France 24 and the AFP, all of which are government owned, and several of these, namely PBS/NPR and the BBC can actually be said to be anti-Zionist, if anything.
There's Reuters, or Thompson-Reuters as it's corporately known. CEO? James C. Smith, not a Jew by any measure. There's al-Jazeera...not exactly a 'pro-Zionist site, wouldn't you agree?
Actually, when you really look at who runs the media, there are really only three Jews you come up with.
There's Les Moonves at CBS, hardly known for its pro-Israel coverage. Ditto with Disney/ABC, whose CEO is Bob Iger.
And then, finally, there's Jeff Bezos, who just bought the WAPO. Not a Jew, and I haven't seen any marked change in its coverage towards Israel before or after, have you?
Have any of these companies hired Jewish talent, staff or executive? Sure they have, but like any other employees, they do what they're told by the men who put them on the air and pay their salaries.
In other words, our friend Mr. Traina has no clue about what he's talking about. The 'Zionists' don't run the media, although I'm sure he and his pals have a lot of fun and excitement fantasizing about it.
Oh, and just an aside. If I were Mark Traina and there actually were some kind of Zionist conspiracy, I don't believe he needs to worry about anyone killing him. People like him are valuable, you see. Both for their entertainment value and because unlike a lot of the slick anti-Israel and anti-semitic media out there, someone like him is so easily discerned as the spittle soaked loony he really is and actually acts as a cover by making the stuff that runs on MSNBC, NPR or the New York Times look and sound like reasoned discourse.
By the way, lest I be accused of talking behind someone's back, I left much of this as a comment on his site. He won't print it of course, but..well, I understand, and no hard feelings.
