Did the Jews ever control the news?

Do a Google search on: ‘Do Jews control the news’ and you’ll find hundreds of websites that say: ‘yes, they do’. A more credible version would be that South African Jews played a brave and pioneering role in the Press in this country, but were soon pushed aside by larger Anglo-Saxon interests. An entertaining guide to a motley crew of forgotten Jews who once wrote the headlines.

Irwin Manoim teaches media studies at Wits University and was himself a former newspaper founder and editor of the  Mail & Guardian.
