I guess its because a majority of the media owners are jewish, the federal reserve is run by jews, most big banks are run by jews, hollywood is run by
jews, and the american congress is bought by AIPAC.
I guess that would be an American perspective. lol
I would say that is a broad biased assumption.
Lets look at the Networks, ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX.
ABC: Owned by the Walt Disney Company.
The Walt Disney Company is a massive media conglomerate, largest in the world by revenue. They own ESPN, Pixar, Lifetime/A&E networks and Marvel. Its
President and CEO, Robert Iger is Jewish, but the company is publicly traded on the stockmarket.
The majority of its shares are owned by Mutual Fund companies.
Fidelity Investments has the largest number of Disney shares at 5%. Note none of the shareholders have any clear majority in the company.
Fidelity Investments is a private company, owned by Edward Johnson III and his daughter Abigail. Their roots go back to the Perkins and Welds families
of Boston. They are not Jews, but have English roots that go back almost 700 years.
Now lets look at CBS.
They are owned by the CBS Corporation. Leslie Moonves is the President and CEO of the CBS Corporation. Moonves is Jewish. The majority shareholder and
chair of CBS is Sumner Redstone of the private company National Amusements, which also has controlling stakes in Viacom, MTV Networks, BET, Paramount
Pictures, and Nickelodeon networks. Sumner Redstone is Jewish.
So far we have one media conglomerate with controlling interests that are Jewish.
Now onto NBC.
NBC is owned by NBC Universal. Its President and CEO is Steve Burke. I cannot find anything that says what his religious affiliation is. The majority,
51%, of NBC Universal's stock is owned by Comcast. Its President and CEO, Brian L Roberts, is Jewish. Comcast is not a private company though. The
majority holders of Comcast are like Disney, financial insititutions and mutual funds. Dodge and Cox are the largest holder, but do not have a
majority. Note: General Electric, a public company, controls roughly the other half of NBC's shares. Its President and CEO does appear to be Jewish,
but its major holders are institutions and mutual funds. The Vanguard Group is the single largest major holder. Vanguard is owned by its members.
Now for FOX.
Fox is owned by Fox Entertainment Group, who also owns 20th Century Fox, Fox News, FX, and NatGeo channel. The group itself is completely owned by
News Corporation. Rupert Murdoch isn't Jewish. News Corporation is a public company. Like Comcast, Dodge and Cox are the single largest major holders.
I havn't found much info on them yet.
So the statement that "the majority of media owners are Jewish" is false.
The majority of media owners are investors, who invest in mutual funds and stocks.
Only one of the broadcast networks has a clear Jewish major controlling interest.
Jewish executives do not equal Jewish owners.
