Description

Todd Gitlin, Daphne Merkin and Matthew Yglesias
With The New Republicís Marc Tracy

Can you write critically about Sheldon Adelson without being anti-Semitic? When Rupert Murdoch tweets ďWhy Is Jewish-owned press so consistently anti-Israel?Ē what does he mean? Why did every article about Bernie Madoff mention he was a Jew? Journalists Daphne Merkin, regular contributor to the New York Times and sister of J. Ezra Merkin, the philanthropist who introduced Madoff to many of his Jewish investors; Slateís Moneybox correspondent, Matthew Yglesias, and Columbia University communications scholar and author Todd Gitlin (Occupy Nation) discuss Jewish images, Jewishness and stereotypes often used by the media.
