Steve Forbes is a conservative Republican Jew. He seems like a nice guy, although his schtick seems to be “lower muh taxes.”
His father, Malcolm Forbes, was an investor and founder of Forbes magazine.
In this piece, Forbes mag purports to show the billionaires who own America’s media.
Obviously, the 15 billionaires named really do own what Forbes says they own. The problem with the article, which makes it a disinformation pys op, is that if you want to know who controls the news you hear and read, you need to know who owns ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and Fox. You also need to know who owns Google and Facebook.
As it is, this flawed list still names a disproportionately high number of Jews, although none of them are identified as Jews.
A small bio is given for each billionaire at the link. Here’s the list:
