From southern France, Christopher Jones summarizes and    comments on a report on the assassination of President Kennedy. Need I    stress that WAIS censors only direct attacks on other WAISers and grossly    improper laguage.    
Christopher says: "I glanced at the Kennedy assassination    site and found this; it fits into our discussion of Hollywood stereotypes    and the slavish behavior of the US press after the 9/11 tragedy and in    the run up to the invasion of Iraq. In a quick rundown, the website recapitulates    an old story that I heard back in the late sixties and early seventies    in California: that Kennedy was liquidated by the mafia whose kingpin was    Meyer Lansky (pal of Lucky Luciano). In fact, I could add a small tidbit    which the author may or may not have covered: that Marilyn Monroe was murdered    by the mafia as a warning to her lovers; Bobby and Jack Kennedy. The story    of the Corsican hit squad was documented in a TV documentary in Europe.    Of course it would be interesting to know more about Auguste Ricord and    his collaboration wih the Gestapo and if he had anything to do with our    old friend, Mandel Szkolnikoff.    
"Today, seven Jewish Americans run the vast majority    of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry,    the book publishing industry, and the recording industry. Most of these    industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following    seven individuals:    
Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner    
Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company    
Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd    
Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company    Ltd and head of Universal Studios    
Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc    
Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric    
Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation    Limited    
Those seven Jewish men collectively control ABC, NBC,    CBS, the Turner Broadcasting System, CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, MCA Records,    Geffen Records, DGC Records, GRP Records, Rising Tide Records, Curb/Universal    Records, and Interscope Records.    
Most of the larger independent newspapers are owned by    Jewish interests as well. An example is media mogul is Samuel I. "Si"    Newhouse, who owns two dozen daily newspapers from Staten Island to Oregon,    plus the Sunday supplement Parade; the Conde Nast collection of magazines,    including Vogue, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Allure, GQ, and Self; the    publishing firms of Random House, Knopf, Crown, and Ballantine, among other    imprints; and cable franchises with over one million subscribers."    
I coul d add that Michael Eisner could depart Disney    tomorrow but the company will remain in the hands of Shamrock Holdings,    whose principal office is now located in Israel".     ml    
Bronfman Group Buys Time Warner Music    
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Time    Warner Inc. (TWX.N: Quote, Profile, Research) on Monday said it would sell    its Warner Music business to a group led by media mogul Edgar Bronfman    Jr. for $2.6 billion, in a move to trim the media group's debts and signaling    a return of the former Seagram chairman to the music business.    
The Bronfman group beat out a bid by EMI (EMI.L: Quote,    Profile, Research) for the recorded music portion of the business for an    estimated $1 billion.    
By choosing the Bronfman bid, Time Warner is forsaking    $250 million to $300 million in cost savings it could have realized by    combining with EMI, home to such acts as The Beatles and Radiohead. Warner    Music artists include Madonna, Led Zeppelin and R.E.M.    
On the other hand, Time Warner is getting more cash up    front by selling the entire business, which includes the music publishing    company, and will have an easier path to regulatory approval. In the past,    European and U.S. regulators have frowned on consolidation within the music    business.    
Bronfman's team, backed by some of America's biggest    private equity houses including Thomas H. Lee Partners, is betting it can    slash costs and turn Warner Music around ahead of a comeback in sales,    a major challenge in an industry currently in decline.    
Bronfman has had long ties to the music business, first    as a songwriter for the likes of Dionne Warwick and Celine Dion, and later    as head of Seagram when he bought entertainment group MCA from Japan's    Matsushita for $5.7 billion. On his watch, the renamed Universal Music    bought Polygram, creating the world's largest record company.    
Bronfman merged his family's entertainment empire with    France's Vivendi three years ago, only to see the family fortune disintegrate.    When Vivendi put its entertainment assets on the block earlier this year,    Bronfman led a group to buy the assets back but was ultimately outbid by    NBC.    
Hit by rampant piracy and competition from other entertainment    such as video games, music sales are expected to fall for the fourth year    in a row in 2004.    
Earlier this month Sony Music (6758.T: Quote, Profile,    Research) agreed to merge with Bertelsmann AG's (BERT.UL: Quote, Profile,    Research) BMG.
