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).

Note: We are using the Noontide Press publication of The International Jew — The World’s Foremost Problem which can be found online here as a pdf file.

    Nice musical introduction. Is that Hadding playing the fiddle music? Does he also play Soldier’s Joy and Tenn. Wagoner as well?

    This must be the first time you have listened. It’s not Hadding; he’s not that good. I forgot who it is and didn’t put it on the Program Page, but he’s a master fiddler. I’ll have to look it up and add it. Hadding will have to answer to the rest.

    The intro/outro music on The International Jew is “Breakin’ Up Christmas” by Bruce Molsky on fiddle and Mike Seeger on banjo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKWRhJ6navk

    There were terrible ‘press wars’ in NYC, from the late 1800′s and especially the 1920′s. Arson, murder, sabotage and brutal beatings to establish press dominance. ( Who’s business tactics does that sound like ?)

    NY times is scandal ridden. They have been caught grossly inflating their circulation numbers ( dumping tons of unsold copy into dumpsters.) Many advertisers are suing them for false circulation numbers. They have self-enriched the Sulzberger Family by the manipulation of class A and class B shares, giving overly generous payouts to class A holders(Sulzbergers and family).

    The NY Times has held an anti-gun position for over 50 years. Opining that private citizens have no reason and no right to have firearms. Yet the Sulzbergers have licenses for multiple MACHINE GUNS . In a city which makes it impossible for the normal, law abiding citizen to get a pistol or long gun permit.

    I can definitely play Soldier’s Joy. I am not sure if I ever heard Tennessee Wagoner.
