Ok, so let me see if I get this straight!

The Gay Secretary
Ok, so let me see if I get this straight. One Jewish guy is mad at Oliver Stone for saying that Jews control the media. So he and another Jewish guy, who both work in Hollywood, called another Jewish guy, who also works in Hollywood, to tell him to pull the series?

Umm Really? Does anyone else see the irony here?

Like Oliver Stone or hate him, but don't censor him and in the process prove his point.

A furious Haim Saban has mounted a campaign to get Showtime to cancel its planned airing of Oliver Stone’s 10-part series, "A Secret History of America," in the wake of anti-Jewish remarks by the outspoken director.

Stone's apology “is transparently fake,” Saban said in an interview with TheWrap. “He has been consistent in his anti-American and anti-Semitic remarks. I respect his First Amendment rights. I hope he respects mine.”

The billionaire and outspoken media mogul told TheWrap he had contacted CBS chief Leslie Moonves to urge him to pull the series.

He said that WME chairman Ari Emanuel had also called CBS privately to urge the series be pulled. update: WME had no comment.

Stone kicked off a media firestorm over the weekend for telling a reporter from London’s Sunday Times that Adolf Hitler, the subject of his upcoming documentary, did more damage to Russia than he did to the Jews. He also stated that the U.S.'s support for Israel is the result of Jewish domination of the media
