This week young Jewish Harvard-educated conservative writer Ben Shapiro has been on the media circuit with his new book Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV. His book features statements by many top media moguls candidly admitting their anti-conservative agenda. Shapiro says because he is Jewish and wore his Harvard baseball cap, more than 100 top media executives presumed he was liberal. The result was a book and 39 video interviews to be posted over the next three weeks on YouTube.
Shapiro’s work is hailed by conservatives as a revelation of honesty about anti-conservative animus in Hollywood. But it’s hardly news that Hollywood is liberal. Everyone on the right and grateful left know that.
The real news Shapiro might have shared is that a disproportionate number of moguls he interviewed are Jewish. His book proves that if you want to find out who controls Hollywood, you end up talking to a lot of Jewish people. Of the 45 Hollywood executives he lists as interviewed, nearly half are Jewish.
Shapiro’s book reveals the same trend that Jewish investigators Lichter and Rothman documented in the early ‘80s. They found that although Jews compose only 1.5% of the US population, of 240 top media writers they interviewed (including ABC, CBS, NBC), 59% were “raised in the Jewish religion.” (54% did not regard adultery as wrong and nearly 90% agreed that a woman has the right to decide on an abortion.)
Predictably, Shapiro completely skirts the question of Jewish power. Another young Jew was not so shy in 2008. Joel Stein was proud to boast in the LA Times, “The Jews are so dominant [in Hollywood], I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish. As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishment. Yes, we control Hollywood.”
And why is that? Shapiro insinuates that liberals hijacked big media which was, in some hazy past time, pro-Christian. Like Michael Medved, Shapiro represents the Bible-friendly Jew who is willing to critique “liberals” on FOX News till the moon turns to cheese but will never discuss the Jewish, Talmudic basis for their agenda. Himself an Orthodox Jew, Shapiro believes liberal Jews betray their basic Hebrew identity—but in fact, they are fulfilling the legacy left to them by Talmudic rabbis centuries ago and more recently by Communist Eastern European ancestors.
Hollywood isn’t left wing because liberals hijacked it! Hollywood was bankrolled by international Jewish financier Jacob Schiff, head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. (now Chase Manhattan), who also helped finance the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917. Hollywood is liberal because it was created by pro-Communist Jews from its inception. Among the masses of Eastern European Jews who immigrated to America in the early 20th century were the founders of Hollywood.
