PART ONE: Verifying the "Who Rules America?" Essay by the National Alliance
by H. L. Dunlap
Loaded:  2/20/2003
Many people have questioned the accuracy of the American "neo-Nazi" group National Alliance's essay "Who Rules America?" -- an essay that alleges that one race -- Jews -- dominates Hollywood, the media, and book publishing.

Below is that NA essay, along with web search results for the persons mentioned within the essay. The goal for verification of the NA essay was to find non-racist/non-White-supremacist sources for all, or most, of the Jewish names/positions/ownerships claimed within the NA essay. A 100% verification was not necessary -- 90% would do, as few sociologically-based claims are ever 100% exact.

A 90% verification of that NA essay was obtained via web searches. The accuracy of the sources, while not scientifically perfect, is at least reasonable. Indeed, mainstream newspapers print corrections daily.

Based on these random search results, the "neo-Nazi" group National Alliance is correct in its claim that Jews dominate Hollywood and the U.S. media. Therefore, Jewish groups which claim that NA is lying to the public are themselves liars. Indeed, that was the main point of this verification: to show that neo-Nazi-type groups are correct in their charges about Jews and that the stereotype of Jews being bold liars is true.

Who Rules America?

The Alien Grip on Our News and Entertainment Media Must Be Broken

By the Research Staff of National Vanguard Books
P.O. Box 330 Hillsboro West Virginia 24946 USA

There is no greater power in the world today than that wielded by the manipulators of public opinion in America. No king or pope of old, no conquering general or high priest ever disposed of a power even remotely approaching that of the few dozen men who control America's mass media of news and entertainment.

Their power is not distant and impersonal; it reaches into every home in America, and it works its will during nearly every waking hour. It is the power that shapes and molds the mind of virtually every citizen, young or old, rich or poor, simple or sophisticated.

The mass media form for us our image of the world and then tell us what to think about that image. Essentially everything we know -- or think we know -- about events outside our own neighborhood or circle of acquaintances comes to us via our daily newspaper, our weekly news magazine, our radio, or our television.

It is not just the heavy-handed suppression of certain news stories from our newspapers or the blatant propagandizing of history-distorting TV "docudramas" that characterizes the opinion-manipulating techniques of the media masters. They exercise both subtlety and thoroughness in their management of the news and the entertainment that they present to us.

For example, the way in which the news is covered: which items are emphasized and which are played down; the reporter's choice of words, tone of voice, and facial expressions; the wording of headlines; the choice of illustrations -- all of these things subliminally and yet profoundly affect the way in which we interpret what we see or hear.

On top of this, of course, the columnists and editors remove any remaining doubt from our minds as to just what we are to think about it all. Employing carefully developed psychological techniques, they guide our thought and opinion so that we can be in tune with the "in" crowd, the "beautiful people," the "smart money." They let us know exactly what our attitudes should be toward various types of people and behavior by placing those people or that behavior in the context of a TV drama or situation comedy and having the other TV characters react in the Politically Correct way.

Molding American Minds

For example, a racially mixed couple will be respected, liked, and socially sought after by other characters, as will a "take charge" Black scholar or businessman, or a sensitive and talented homosexual, or a poor but honest and hardworking illegal alien from Mexico. On the other hand, a White racist -- that is, any racially conscious White person who looks askance at miscegenation or at the rapidly darkening racial situation in America -- is portrayed, at best, as a despicable bigot who is reviled by the other characters, or, at worst, as a dangerous psychopath who is fascinated by firearms and is a menace to all law-abiding citizens. The White racist "gun nut," in fact, has become a familiar stereotype on TV shows.

The average American, of whose daily life TV-watching takes such an unhealthy portion, distinguishes between these fictional situations and reality only with difficulty, if at all. He responds to the televised actions, statements, and attitudes of TV actors much as he does to his own peers in real life. For all too many Americans the real world has been replaced by the false reality of the TV environment, and it is to this false reality that his urge to conform responds. Thus, when a TV scriptwriter expresses approval of some ideas and actions through the TV characters for whom he is writing, and disapproval of others, he exerts a powerful pressure on millions of viewers toward conformity with his own views.

And as it is with TV entertainment, so it is also with the news, whether televised or printed. The insidious thing about this form of thought control is that even when we realize that entertainment or news is biased, the media masters still are able to manipulate most of us. This is because they not only slant what they present, but they establish tacit boundaries and ground rules for the permissible spectrum of opinion.

As an example, consider the media treatment of Middle East news. Some editors or commentators are slavishly pro-Israel in their every utterance, while others seem nearly neutral. No one, however, dares suggest that the U.S. government is backing the wrong side in the Arab-Jewish conflict and that it served Jewish interests, rather than American interests, to send U.S. forces to cripple Iraq, Israel's principal rival in the Middle East. Thus, a spectrum of permissible opinion, from pro-Israel to nearly neutral, is established.

Another example is the media treatment of racial issues in the United States. Some commentators seem almost dispassionate in reporting news of racial strife, while others are emotionally partisan -- with the partisanship always on the non-White side. All of the media spokesmen without exception, however, take the position that "multiculturalism" and racial mixing are here to stay, and that they are good things.

Because there are differences in degree, however, most Americans fail to realize that they are being manipulated. Even the citizen who complains about "managed news" falls into the trap of thinking that because he is presented with an apparent spectrum of opinion he can escape the thought controllers' influence by believing the editor or commentator of his choice. It's a "heads I win, tails you lose" situation. Every point on the permissible spectrum of public opinion is acceptable to the media masters -- and no impermissible fact or viewpoint is allowed any exposure at all, if they can prevent it.

The control of the opinion-molding media is nearly monolithic. All of the controlled media -- television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, motion pictures -- speak with a single voice, each reinforcing the other. Despite the appearance of variety, there is no real dissent, no alternative source of facts or ideas accessible to the great mass of people that might allow them to form opinions at odds with those of the media masters. They are presented with a single view of the world -- a world in which every voice proclaims the equality of the races, the inerrant nature of the Jewish "Holocaust" tale, the wickedness of attempting to halt the flood of non-White aliens pouring across our borders, the danger of permitting citizens to keep and bear arms, the moral equivalence of all sexual orientations, and the desirability of a "pluralistic," cosmopolitan society rather than a homogeneous, White one. It is a view of the world designed by the media masters to suit their own ends -- and the pressure to conform to that view is overwhelming. People adapt their opinions to it, vote in accord with it, and shape their lives to fit it.

And who are these all-powerful masters of the media? As we shall see, to a very large extent they are Jews. It isn't simply a matter of the media being controlled by profit-hungry capitalists, some of whom happen to be Jews. If that were the case, the ethnicity of the media masters would reflect, at least approximately, the ratio of rich gentiles to rich Jews. Despite a few prominent exceptions, the preponderance of Jews in the media is so overwhelming that we are obliged to assume that it is due to more than mere happenstance.

Electronic News & Entertainment Media

Continuing government deregulation of the telecommunications industry has resulted, not in the touted increased competition, but rather in an accelerating wave of corporate mergers and acquisitions that have produced a handful of multi-billion-dollar media conglomerates. The largest of these conglomerates are rapidly growing even bigger by consuming their competition, almost tripling in size during the 1990s. Whenever you watch television, whether from a local broadcasting station or via cable or a satellite dish; whenever you see a feature film in a theater or at home; whenever you listen to the radio or to recorded music; whenever you read a newspaper, book, or magazine -- it is very likely that the information or entertainment you receive was produced and/or distributed by one of these megamedia companies.

AOL-TW. The largest media conglomerate today is AOL-Time Warner, created when America Online bought Time Warner for $160 billion in 2000. The merger brought together Steve Case, a White gentile, as chairman of AOL-TW, and Gerald Levin, a Jew, as the CEO. A brief history of the company is in order.
[Levin as both CEO and Jewish: http://media.guardian.co.uk/news/story/0,7541,614468,00.html ; article "Keep the faith, reap the net profits - Interview: Gerald Levin, chief executive officer, AOL-Time Warner," March 10, 2001; quote from the article: "he thought seriously about becoming a rabbi"]

The four (gentile) Warner brothers founded their movie company in 1907 and had their first major success ten years later with My 4 Years in Germany. WB incorporated in 1923 and went on to cartoon success with Porky Pig and Bugs Bunny. In 1944, a court ruled that WB must release Olivia de Havilland after her seven-year contract. This decision prevented any one company from controlling a pool of creative talent, but it did nothing to stop the Jews from controlling the entire industry with which that talent was obliged to work. In 1948, WB sold its film library to MGM. In 1949, another court ruling forced WB to sell its cinema chain, obstructing vertical integration by a single movie-making company, while doing nothing to prevent the Jews from establishing such integration through an ethnic collaboration.

In 1958, WB created Warner Brothers Records, which was later renamed WEA. In 1968, Jack Warner sold his shares to Seven Arts, while DC and All-American Comics were bought by Kinney National Services (a funeral parlor conglomerate). Kinney turned around and bought a talent agency, then turned around again and bought Warner-Seven Arts, becoming Warner Communications.

Warner Communications bought Elektra Records in 1970, the same year that Jew David Geffen
[see elsewhere] started the Asylum label. (The name is synonymous with crazy-house.) Time bought HBO from Charles Dolan in 1972. Ironically, 1972 was also the year when Money magazine began publication, while the (original) magazine Life ceased.

Ted Turner entered the major media scene in 1976 when his TV station WTCG (Atlanta) was carried on US cable networks. In 1979, Turner Communications Group became Turner Broadcasting System, and WTCG was renamed WTBS. The following year, CNN became the world's first 24-hour all-news cable network. Turner tried to buy CBS in 1985, but he was blocked when Lawrence Tisch, a Jew, bought 25% of shares. Instead, Turner bought MGM's film library (1986). TBS merged with Castle Rock and New Line Cinema in 1994. In 1996, Turner made a career-busting faux pas by selling TBS to Time Warner. AOL bought Time Warner in 2000.
[Tisch as a "Jewish leader": article "Bob and Jane at the White House," by Jane Filner, July 23, 1999, Here. ; quote: "There were many important Jewish leaders from across the country, business people and heads of organizations. Elie Weisel, Ron Lauder, Bonnie Lipton, Ronald Perelman,...Lawrence Tisch"]

In 2001, Gerald Levin, who had been Chairman of Time Warner and then CEO of the merged AOL-TW, fired Ted Turner from his position during a telephone conversation. Control of TBS temporarily shifted to Robert Pittman (a White gentile), but was given shortly afterward to Walter Isaacson, a Jew, who was recruited from his former position at Time Inc., to take over the company that Ted Turner built. We're reasonably certain that Ted Turner would not have sold TBS to Time Warner if he'd known that Levin was going to fire him only five years later. Levin smooth-talked Turner in classic Jewish fashion, and Turner, having placed his trust in a Jew's honor, paid the price for that mistake.
[Walter Isaacson as Jewish: http://www.converge.org.nz/pma/cra0377.htm , article: "The American View: Biased in Favor of Israel ...Who, Us? -- Bush's options in the Middle East are limited by the US's powerful Jewish lobby," April 14, 2002. Quote: "Other prominent American Jews lead and work widely in the media, the film industry, banking and politics. Media figures include...Walter Isaacson..." Surname Isaacson as very often Jewish: Jewish genealogical search engine: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm ; Isaacson as CNN head: article "CNN seeks balance in Mideast coverage," by Gary Rosenblatt, July 5, 2002, http://www.jewishaz.com/jewishnews/020705/balance.shtml ]

But Levin wasn't finished with his dagger. Having backstabbed Turner, he did likewise to his other useful dupe, Robert Pittman. Pittman had been Levin's champion for the AOL-TW merger on the AOL side. While we don't know for certain what Pittman's motive was, we could guess that it had something to do with Pittman believing himself to be Levin's choice as the new CEO at AOL-TW after Levin's retirement. But when the time came to finalize his choice of successor, Levin bypassed Pittman and gave the position to his long-time pet mulatto, Richard Parsons. Parsons has been AOL-TW's CEO since May 2002. Pittman, though initially grumpy about this treatment, has moderated his tone. A paycheck less than Parsons' paycheck is still better than no paycheck at all.

Before the merger, AOL was the largest Internet service provider in America, and it is now being used as an online platform for the Jewish content from Time Warner. Time Warner, with 1997 revenues of more than $13 billion, was the second largest of the international media leviathans when it was bought by AOL.

Time Warner's subsidiary HBO is the country's largest pay-TV cable network. Until the purchase in May 1998 of PolyGram by Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Warner Music was America's largest record company, with 50 labels, the biggest of which is Warner Brothers Records (WEA). Warner Music was an early promoter of "gangsta rap." Through its involvement with Interscope Records (prior to Interscope's acquisition by MCA), it helped to popularize a genre whose graphic lyrics explicitly urge Blacks to commit acts of violence against Whites.

AOL-TW's publishing ventures include Time-Life International Books, Time-Life Education, Time-Life Music, Time-Life AudioBooks, Book-of-the-Month Club (both adult and children's branches), Paperback Book Club, History Book Club, Money Book Club, HomeStyle Books, Crafter's Choice, One Spirit, Little Brown, Bulfinch Press, Back Bay Books, Warner Books, Warner Vision, The Mysterious Press, Warner Aspect, Warner Treasures, Oxmoor House, Leisure Arts, Sunset Books and TW Kids.

AOL-TW owns the following cable and satellite companies, among others: Cinemax, Time Warner Sports, HBO (7 US and 6 international divisions), CNN (10 divisions worldwide), Time Warner Cable, Road Runner, Time Warner Communications (primarily a telephone service), New York City Cable Group, New York 1 (a sort of CNN devoted exclusively to news in the NYC area), Time Warner Home Theater, Time Warner Security (video monitoring), Court-TV (ownership shared with Liberty Media), Comedy Central (ownership shared with Viacom) and Kablevision (Hungary).

AOL-TW owns the following TV and movie companies: Warner Brothers, WB studios, WB Television (Productions, Animation, and Network), Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, Telepictures Production, Witt-Thomas Productions, Castle Rock Entertainment, Warner Home Video, WB Domestic Pay-TV, WB Domestic TV Distribution, WB International TV Distribution, The Warner Channel (separate companies for Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Australia, and Germany), and WB International Theaters in 12 countries.

The editor-in-chief of Time Warner's publishing division is Norman Pearlstine, a Jew. AOL-TW owns the following magazines:
Time, Time Asia, Time Atlantic, Time Canada, Time Latin America, Time South Pacific, Time Money, Time For Kids, Fortune, Life (the watered-down new version), Sports Illustrated (plus SI Women/Sport, SI International, and SI For Kids), Inside Stuff, Money, Your Company, Your Future, People, Who Weekly (Australia), People en Espaņol, Teen People, Entertainment Weekly, EW Metro, The Ticket, In Style, Southern Living, Progressive Farmer, Southern Accents, Cooking Light, Travel Leisure, Food & Wine, Your Company, Departures, SkyGuide, Vertigo, Paradox, Milestone, Mad Magazine, Parenting, Baby Talk, Baby on the Way, This Old House, Sunset, Sunset Garden Guide, Health, Hippocrates, Costal Living, Weight Watchers, Real Simple, President (Japan), and Dancyu (Japan). AOL-TW owns 80 additional magazines (mostly hobby and leisure) in Britain.

He was born in 1942 and raised in tiny Collegeville, Pennsylvania, one of several children in the only Jewish family in town."]

AOL-TW holds the following music record labels: Atlantic Group, Atlantic Classics, Atlantic Jazz, Atlantic Nashville, Atlantic Theater, Big Beat, Background, Breaking, Curb, Igloo, Lava, Mesa/Bluemoon, Modern, Rhino Records, Elektra, EastWest, Asylum, Elektra/Sire, Warner Brothers Records, Warner Nashville, Warner Alliance, Warner Resound, Warner Sunset, Reprise, Reprise Nashville, American Recordings, Giant, Maverick, Revolution, Qwest, Warner Music International, WEA Telegram, East West ZTT, Coalition, CGD East West, China, Continental, DRO East West, Erato, Fazer, Finlandia, MCM, Nonesuch, and Teldec.

Disney. The second-largest media conglomerate today, with 1997 revenues of $23 billion, is the Walt Disney Company. Its chairman and CEO, Michael Eisner, is a Jew. The Disney empire, headed by a man described by one media analyst as "a control freak," includes several television production companies (Walt Disney Television, Touchstone Television, Buena Vista Television) and cable networks with more than 100 million subscribers altogether. The TV stations under Disney control include: WLS (Chicago), WJRT (Flint), KFSN (Fresno), KTRK (Houston), KABC (Los Angeles), WABC (New York City), WPVI (Philadelphia), WTVD (Raleigh), KGO (San Francisco) and WTVG (Toledo).
[Michael Eisner as Jewish and a CEO: article "Eisner Un-Moused?" by Michael Wolff, July 12, 1999 issue of New York Magazine, http://www.newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/news/media/columns/medialife/143 ; quote: "(for ten years, in our family, we've been watching a tape of Mary Poppins introduced by Michael Eisner, who glides down the cable car at Disneyland and like a folksy Dad -- a Jewish Walt -- presents the Disney classic)"]

Disney also has a major presence in radio, owning WKHX, WYAY and WDWD in Atlanta; WMVP, WLS, and WXCD in Chicago; WBAP and KSCS in Dallas; WDRQ, WJR and WPLT in Detroit; KLOS and KTZN in Los Angeles; KQRS, KXXR, KDIZ, KZNR, and KZNT in St. Paul; WPLJ in New York City; KSFO in San Francisco; WMAL, WJZW, and WRQX in Washington; and ESPN Radio.

As for feature films, the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group, under Walt Disney Studios, headed by Joseph E. Roth (also a Jew), includes Walt Disney Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, and Caravan Pictures. Roth founded Caravan Pictures in January 1993, and it is now headed by his fellow Jew Roger Birnbaum. Disney also owns Miramax Films, run by the Weinstein brothers, Bob and Harvey, who have produced such ultra-raunchy movies as The Crying Game, Priest, and Kids.
[Roth mentioned as Jewish: essay by Michael Medved, "Jews Run Hollywood -- So What?" in Moment magazine, August 1996; ditto Ben Stein essay -- see elsewhere; surname "Roth" as usually Jewish, i.e. many "hits" at a Jewish genealogical search engine: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm ; Roth as top honcho: Disney Board of Directors list, http://www.disneyinternational.com/AnnualReport/board_dir.htm ; Birnbaum as a top Hollywood honcho: http://www.city-journal.org/html/8_4_a1.html ; surname "Birnbaum" as usually Jewish: Jewish genealogical search engine: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm ; Weinstein brothers as Jewish, and CEOs: film review by Gerald Peary of "Life Is Beautiful" at http://www.geraldpeary.com/reviews/jkl/life-is-beautiful.html ; quote: "Oy gevalt! I must add that many blessing this picture are my own Chosen People, who definitely should know better. Miramax bosses Harvey and Bob Weinstein (Jewish! Jewish!) have lined up endorsements from groups like the Anti-Defamation League..."]

When the Disney Company was run by the gentile Disney family, prior to its takeover by Eisner in 1984, it epitomized wholesome, family entertainment. While it still holds the rights to Snow White, the company under Eisner has expanded into the production of a great deal of so-called "adult" material.

In August 1995, Eisner acquired Capital Cities/ABC, Inc., which owns the ABC Television Network, which in turn owns ten TV stations outright in such big markets as New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Houston. In addition, it has 225 affiliated stations in the United States and is part owner of several European TV companies.

ABC's cable subsidiary, ESPN, is headed by president and CEO Steven Bornstein, who is a Jew. The corporation also has a controlling share of Lifetime Television and A & E Television Networks cable companies, with 67 million subscribers each. ABC Radio Network owns 26 AM and FM stations, again in major cities such as New York, Washington, and Los Angeles, and has over 3,400 affiliates.
[Surname "Bornstein" as often Jewish: Jewish genealological search engine: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm ; Bornstein as both ABC and ESPN chiefs: ESPN article "Steven M. Bornstein named President, ABC Television," author/year not given, http://espn.go.com/pr/s/010410steveb.html ]

Although primarily a telecommunications company, Capital Cities/ABC earned over $1 billion in publishing in 1997. Besides these publishing concerns, Disney owns Walt Disney Company Book Publishing, Hyperion Books, and Miramax Books. It also owns six daily newspapers, including the
Albany Democrat and the St. Louis Daily Record.

Disney's magazine titles include
Automotive Industries, Biography (partial ownership), Discover, Disney Adventures, Disney Magazine, ECN News, ESPN Magazine, Family Fun, Family PC, Institutional Investor, Jane, JCK, Kentucky Prairie Farmer, Kodin, Los Angeles, Multichannel News, Penny Power, Talk, Top Famille (France), Video Business, and Quality.

Disney operates 660 retail stores worldwide (the figure is for April 2000). And, incidentally, it is also invested in crude oil and natural gas exploitation.

On the Internet, Disney runs Buena Vista Internet Group, ABC Internet Group, ABC.com, ABCNEWS.com, Oscar.com, Mr. Showbiz, Disney Online, Disney's Daily Blast, Disney.com, Family.com, ESPN Internet Group, ESPN.sportzone.com, Soccernet.com, NFL.com, NBA.com, Infoseek (partial ownership), and Disney Interactive.

Viacom. Number three on the list, with 1997 revenues of just over $13 billion, is Viacom, Inc., headed by Sumner Redstone (born Murray Rothstein), a Jew. Viacom was formed in 1971 as a way to dodge an anti-monopoly FCC ruling that required CBS to spin off a part of its cable TV operations and syndicated programming business. This move by the government unfortunately did nothing to reduce the mostly Jewish collaborative monopoly that remains the major problem with the industry. In 1999, after CBS had again augmented itself by buying King World Productions (a leading TV program syndicator), Viacom acquired its progenitor company, CBS, in a double mockery of the spirit of the 1971 ruling.
[Redstone as Jewish and CEO: article, "Event Archive, Sumner Redstone - June 15, 2001," http://www.commonwealthclub.org/archive/01/01-06redstone-speech.html ; quote from Redstone: "For 60 years, I bought suits off the rack. Some would say I didn't do too well doing it. I was born to the children of Jewish immigrants. I spent my early years in a tenement. Our apartment didn't have a toilet."

Viacom produces and distributes TV programs for the three largest networks, owns 13 television stations and 12 radio stations. It produces feature films through Paramount Pictures, headed by Jewess Sherry Lansing. Redstone acquired CBS following the December 1999 stockholders' votes at CBS and Viacom.
[Lansing as Jewish and a CEO: essay "Do Jews Run Hollywood?," by Ben Stein, no date given, http://www.realolam.com/channels/default.asp?channel=37&articleid=2723 ; quote: "At mighty Paramount, the controlling stockholder is Sumner Redstone. Head of the studio is Jon Dolgen. Head of production is Sherry Lansing -- all members of the tribe." Article was written by a Jew, Stein.

Working for Redstone as CBS's chief executive is a Jew named Melvin A. Karmazin. He is the boss and biggest individual shareholder of the company that owns the CBS Television Network, 14 major-market TV stations, 160 radio stations, the Country Music Television and the Nashville Network cable channels, and a large number of outdoor advertising assets.
[Karmazin as Jewish and a CEO: article "Meet the New Boss at CBS (Careful, He Bites)," no author given, March 16, 1998 issue of New York Magazine, http://www.newyorkmetro.com/nymetro/news/media/features/2372/index1.html ; quote: "Finally, like the late Steve Ross, the legendary former head of Time Warner, Karmazin is the charismatic Jewish striver from the outer boroughs, the self-made man who rose to the highest heights."].

Viacom's publishing division includes Simon & Schuster, Scribner, The Free Press, Fireside, Archway Paperbacks and Minstrel Books, Anne Schwartz Books, MTV Books, Nickelodeon Books, Pocket Books, and Washington Square Press. It distributes videos through over 4,000 Blockbuster stores (including the Video Flicks chain in Australia). It is also involved in satellite broadcasting, theme parks, and video games.

Viacom's chief claim to fame, however, is as the world's largest provider of cable programming, through its Showtime, MTV, Nickelodeon, and other networks. Since 1989 MTV and Nickelodeon have acquired larger and larger shares of the juvenile television audience. The first quarter of 2001 was the 16th consecutive quarter in which MTV was rated as the #1 cable network for viewers between the ages of 12 and 24. Redstone, who actually owns 76 per cent of the shares of Viacom, has offered Beavis and Butt-head as teen role models and currently is the largest single purveyor of race-mixing propaganda to White teenagers and sub-teens in America and in Europe. MTV Networks acquired The Music Factory (TMF) from the Dutch media and marketing group Wegener in 2001. TMF distributes music to almost 10 million homes in Holland and Belgium. MTV is expanding its presence in Europe through new channels, including MTV Dance (Britain) and MTV Live (Scandinavia). MTV Italy is active through Cecchi Gori Communications. MTV pumps its racially mixed rock and rap videos into 210 million homes in 71 countries and is the dominant cultural influence on White teenagers around the world.
