[Link to an excerpt from Chapter 6]:


     As just one percent of the population in England, by World War I Jews accounted for 23% of Britain's non-landed millionaires, as financiers, merchants, bankers, stockbrokers, and other such entrepreneurs. [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 22] Disproportionate influence in the mass media, as usual, was extraordinary. The Reuters news agency ("the chief purveyor of information on world events to the entire British press and, at times, the government") was founded and owned by Jews (originally by Paul Julius Reuter whose original name was Israel Beer Josaphat), as was the Sunday Times, the Financial Times, the English Review, the Daily Telegraph, and the Westminister Gazette.  A Jewish businessman, Harry Oppenheim, also had a major interest in the London Daily News. [GINSBERG, B., 1993, p. 22]  "In England," notes Cecil Roth,


      "the most notable Jewish figure in the newspaper world in the nineteenth

      century was J. M. Levy, who founded not merely the Daily Telegraph,

      but, as a result, popular journalism as a whole in England ... All three of

      the pioneers in the establishment of the European news agencies were

      Jews -- Reuter, Wolff, and Havas." [ROTH, C., 1940, p. 143, 145]
