The American Jew as Journalist

By Stephen J. Whitfield

Oxford University Press, 1987

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 3, 161-180. The subject of the relationship of Jews to journalism is entangled in a paradox. Their role in the press has long been an obsession of their enemies, and the vastly disproportionate power that the Jews are alleged to wield through the media has long been a staple of the anti-Semitic imagination. The commitment to this version of bigotry has dwarfed the interest that scholars have shown in this problem, and such disparity merits the slight correction and compensation that this essay offers.
