I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.
How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.
The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.)
The Jews are so dominant, 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. Without us, you’d be flipping between “The 700 Club” and “Davey and Goliath” on TV all day.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to re-convince America that Jews run Hollywood by launching a public relations campaign, because that’s what we do best. I’m weighing several slogans, including: “Hollywood: More Jewish than ever!”; “Hollywood: From the people who brought you the Bible”; and “Hollywood: If you enjoy TV and movies, then you probably like Jews after all.”
I called ADL Chairman Abe Foxman, who was in Santiago, Chile, where, he told me to my dismay, he was not hunting Nazis. He dismissed my whole proposition, saying that the number of people who think Jews run Hollywood is still too high. The ADL poll, he pointed out, showed that 59% of Americans think Hollywood execs “do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans,” and 43% think the entertainment industry is waging an organized campaign to “weaken the influence of religious values in this country.”
That’s a sinister canard, Foxman said. “It means they think Jews meet at Canter’s Deli on Friday mornings to decide what’s best for the Jews.” Foxman’s argument made me rethink: I have to eat at Canter’s more often.
“That’s a very dangerous phrase, ‘Jews control Hollywood.’ What is true is that there are a lot of Jews in Hollywood,” he said. Instead of “control,” Foxman would prefer people say that many executives in the industry “happen to be Jewish,” as in “all eight major film studios are run by men who happen to be Jewish.”
But Foxman said he is proud of the accomplishments of American Jews. “I think Jews are disproportionately represented in the creative industry. They’re disproportionate as lawyers and probably medicine here as well,” he said. He argues that this does not mean that Jews make pro-Jewish movies any more than they do pro-Jewish surgery. Though other countries, I’ve noticed, aren’t so big on circumcision.
I appreciate Foxman’s concerns. And maybe my life spent in a New Jersey-New York/Bay Area-L.A. pro-Semitic cocoon has left me naive. But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.

It’s funny I’ve never been in an entourage, or a video feature chasing type chick literally they work 12 hours on set for FREE or may get $50.00 to $200 for 12 plus hours 1-3 days, tired and stressed with retakes lmao, with all the glamour in me I’m just not bout that bullshit life, half the time the feature chicks be hella busted and fat, but make up and editing and of course knowing the right well the wrong people who don’t mind using you will get you a lead video vixen role in some urban music video……..I remember back in 2001 I started working for one of the major labels under Def Jam…and more than a decade ago I realized how dumb it was for anybody to be a groupie rather than a strong supporter for such starving signed artist, who are generally “human credit cards, a walking bill, or a major debtor”, that gets free clothing and sneakers and even rented exotic cars and jewelry…. So now when I see a bunch of want to bee’s trailing behind artist, athletes and actors to the VIP in the club…. poppin bottles on someone else’s dime with their chest out acting like they better than the club goers on the main floor, I somehow am always disturbed and turned off, I guess because my eyes are wide open to the nonsense……Check this out a secret that all club goers should know….A lot of crew members that drive, travel, and lodge with entertainers be BROKE, the biggest fronters of em all… BEWARE….I did all that when I was 21 interning at the label….It’s sad to see a 40+ year old asshole who isn’t about that real Thug Life fronting and fooling chicken heads cause he sitting next to “Denzel Washington or whomever we love to see on television” (Tell Lies To Your Vision)……LMAO…..I need a radio show cause my mind be racing….but for real I’m telling the truth…. Video girls are broke if they are not a stripper. Most of the time video vixens are girls from the strip clubs looking for exposure or an actor who volunteered to show face for artist advertisement…..and trust this most entourage dudes be broke too…..unless they are street hustlers who just grew up with the artist during the unsigned days, or the manager of the artist who more than likely got/had street money to carry the artist while grinding ……okay so people if you find yourself in aw or open off of what I know is bullshit and you get caught out there, just remember this…….I’ve been around, seen many things and many places, it’s not what most of you think especially our children who inspire to be these lies……If you want to act, the best place is NYU, UCLA. Secure a very expensive well known acting coach/agent and go through the proper channels…..you want to be a artist go underground, independent do your own thing…..stop wasting money on bullshit agencies for acting and networking doing drugs in basement studios……read research and draw out your own path…..in this world all you got is self…..earn money, stack money, find fail safe paths and pay for it if need be……and be good at what you do..
