Carolyn Yeager and Hadding Scott read and comment on Chapter 39, “When Editors Were Independent of the Jews.”
Newspaper editors independent of Jews?! Well, one newspaper proprietor in New York City, James Gordon Bennett, managed to stay independent until his death in 1918. He arranged his will so that The Herald could not fall to an individual owner, but that revenue would flow into a fund for his editors who kept it going. However, the Herald was later merged with another paper and eventually became a European edition, the International Herald Tribune, which since 1966 is wholly owned by the Jewish Sulzberger New York Times company. It will be renamed the International New York Times in the fall of this year.
It makes for an engrossing and instructive story, the moral of which is “You can’t beat the Jews over the long haul.”
Image: Herald Square in 1895, with the New York Herald Building dominating. A large statue of “Minerva and the Bell Ringers” that graced the roof line was given a permanent place on the square after the building was demolished in 1921 (the year of our chapter).
