Publishers – Media

“Who controls the “hidden hand” in the U.S. mass media that censors and suppresses the crucial 9-11 evidence? What is the nexus connecting the architects of 9-11 with the mass media moguls who are covering up the truth? “….” As a longtime observer of Israel and the Middle East, I have watched how the U.S. mass media has increasingly become an instrument of Israeli propaganda.”

The New York Post,[tabloid] “owned by News Corporation — News Corporation’s headquarters is at 1211 Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Ave.), in New York City, in the newer 1960s-1970s corridor of the Rockefeller Center complex…The company’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder is Rupert Murdoch.” ;

… in May 1943, RCA [NBC] sold Blue Network Company, Inc., for $8 million to Life Savers magnate Edward J. Noble [which became ABC]

ABC News — “ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Company …A separate entity named ABC Inc., formerly Capital Cities/ABC Inc., is that firm’s direct parent company, and that company is owned in turn by Disney…In 1996, The Walt Disney Company acquired Capital Cities/ABC, and renamed the broadcasting group ABC, Inc…ABC’s relationship with Disney dates back to 1953, when Leonard Goldenson pledged enough money so that the “Disneyland” theme park could be completed.     Leonard H. Goldenson (December 7, 1905 – December 27, 1999) was President of the U.S. television and radio broadcaster ABC.   … Alex Wallau took over as president in 2000…..ABC aired the miniseries The Path to 9/11 in September 2006 on the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The docudrama was widely criticized, especially from the left, for its alleged inaccuracies.”

NBC News — “The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American television network and former radio network headquartered in the GE Building in New York City’s Rockefeller Center with additional major offices in Burbank, California [ABC offices also in Burbank]…Formed in 1926 by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), NBC was the first major broadcast network in the United States…In 1986, control of NBC passed to General Electric (GE), with GE’s $6.4 billion purchase of RCA. GE had previously owned RCA and NBC until 1930, when it had been forced to sell the company as a result of antitrust charges. After the acquisition, the chief executive of NBC was Bob Wright, until he retired, giving his job to Jeff Zucker…At the start of the 2000s, however, NBC’s fortunes took a rapid turn for the worse…NBC Universal President/CEO Jeff Zucker had previously said that NBC no longer believed that they could be #1 in prime time.

CBS News — “CBS started out as a radio network. The name is derived from the initials of the network’s former name, Columbia Broadcasting System. The network is sometimes referred to as the Eye Network or more simply The Eye, in reference to the shape of the company’s logo. It has also been called the “Tiffany Network,”…The Westinghouse Electric Corporation acquired the network in 1995 and eventually adopted the name of the company it had bought to become CBS Corporation. In 2000, CBS came under the control of Viacom … CBS Corporation and the new Viacom are controlled by Sumner Redstone through National Amusements, the parent of the two companies.”


New York Times  

“For the third time in a little over two weeks, the paper was hit with an anthrax scare. A letter with white powder was discovered in the mailroom early on the morning of Oct. 23. The letter, which had no return address but was postmarked in Glasgow, Scotland, was being tested for anthrax. Initial results were not yet available, but the mailroo’s operations had been suspended pending the results… On Oct. 18, the paper announced that the Rio de Janeiro bureau had received a letter that had initially appeared to contain anthrax. Later tests showed that the letter was not dangerous…”


The Pilgrim Society

“The New York Times and Time Magazine have been the news publications the most intimately tied to to the Pilgrims of the United States over the years. Since 1896 the New York Times has been owned by the Ochs-Sulzberger family, members of which have been generational members of the Pilgrims since the very beginning…Among the Pilgrims that have held senior positions in Time Magazine are Paul Gray Hoffman (OSS-CIA), Philip G. Howlett, William J. Cross, Hedley Donovan, Donald M. Elliman, Jr., George A. Heard, Roy E. Larsen, Samuel W. Meek and Frank Pace, Jr. Henry Luce III became president of the U.S. Pilgrims in 1997.

News stations are considerably less prominent in the Pilgrims Society. One of the exceptions has been the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), located in Rockefeller Center and one of he most dominant broadcasting companies from the 1930s to the early 1970s. Morgan banker Owen D. Young founded the RCA in 1919…

..a broadcasting company that has been represented in the Pilgrims Society is CBS. Over the years several Pilgrims have been directors of this New York-based company, among them Henry Kissinger and Marietta Peabody Tree (vice chair Pilgrims; great-granddaughter of George E. Peabody, the famous Morgan partner). William S. Paley, the founder and continuous owner of CBS until his death in 1990, was a member of the Pilgrims Society. So was “the most trusted man in America”, Walter Cronkite, the well known anchorman for the CBS Evening News from 1962 to 1982.    [Thirdring adds>> the author/editor of the Pilgrim Society website misleadingly and repetitively refers to the members as WASPS, emphasizing the Anglican-Episcopal affinity in spite of the fact that a large percentage of prominent Pilgrims are well known Jews and an unknown number are Crypto-Jews, however the rosters and indices are useful.]

“Britain appears to have had some sort of Mockingbird program similar to the United States…. in 1995 a person named Gerald James published his rather controversial book ‘In the Public Interest’. James had been a banker at Barings Brothers (a Pilgrims bank) and a member of the aristocratic Monday Club. He knew many people in intelligence, including the former deputy head of MI6, George Kennedy Young (who became a banker at Kleinwort). James was also chairman of the arms company Astra Holdings. In his biography/expose James wrote how a cabal of City bankers and intelligence men were running the major illegal arms deals, had infiltrated and corrupted smaller companies, and collapsed a number of them after fearing exposure in the wake of the Iraqgate scandal. James’s Astra Holdings had been among these “front companies” which had been collapsed, prompting James to write a book in an effort to clear his name…

British Pilgrims can hardly be tied to this British “Mockingbird” program, probably because there’s too little information available on the collusion between British intelligence and the press. The exception might be some of the more reactionary aristocrats in the British Pilgrims, like Sir Frederick Bennett, Lord Chalfont, Lord William Rees-Mogg and their ally in the United States, John Train…

Education is the key to success, and this is no different for Pilgrims. The majority of U.S. Pilgrims have studied at Harvard, Princeton or Yale and majored in either law or economics – if not both. It might not be a surprise then that at any time the boards of these three universities are filled with Pilgrims Society members. There are a few other universities from which Pilgrims have graduated. They include New York University, Columbia University, Dartmouth and a few prestigious European universities. MIT is popular among the small number of scientists that have joined the Pilgrims. Additionally, a good number of Pilgrims have been on the board of the American Academy in Rome, a New York-based school for artists. This is not a mainstay of the average Pilgrims education, however. It is more a reflection of the Pilgrims influence on aspects of New York social life.   In England things are even simpler: the vast majority of future Pilgrims go to Oxford and to a lesser extent, Cambridge – or they come to the United States to study at Harvard, Princeton or Yale.”
