Oliver Stone

Oliver Stone: 'Jewish-Dominated Media' Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed 'in Context'

If you look at the reader comments, you'll get a taste for the treatment John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt received after publishing their essay "The Israel Lobby", as described by Stephen Sniegoski here. From this piece:

"The initial reaction to John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt's essay "The Israel Lobby" consisted of a relentless barrage of vituperative insults, smears, character assassination, misrepresentations, and other inflammatory rhetoric that condemned the essay in toto. In large part, the vicious pillorying of the piece came from members of the Israel lobby denying their own power and even existence. Presumably, the purpose of that approach was to intimidate anyone from ever daring to investigate the subject. But the effect of the venomous verbal bombardment also unintentionally illustrated the absolute correctness of the essay's claim about the lobby's power to suppress."

Oliver Stone: 'Jewish Domination Of The Media' Propagates Holocaust Myths

This Huffington Post article quotes Stone:

"The Jewish domination of the media," he said. "There's a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years."

Again, reader comments talk little about what he actually said.
