In other words, it appears to be quite clear that the Hollywood-based U.S. film industry has always been (and continues to be) controlled by a small group of Jewish males of European heritage, who are politically liberal and not very religious (see "Who Really Controls Hollywood") Among other things, this control group has engaged in extensive nepotism, favoritism and cronyism, in addition to reciprocal preferences, primarily based on the Jewish heritage of the beneficiaries of those forms of discrimination (see ). In addition, it is clear that as a result of that control, Hollywood movies have consistently portrayed people, places and things associated with the Jewish culture in a more favorable manner, while at the same time, consistently portraying people, places and things that are not Jewish in a more negative manner, and because of its consistency over time, this pattern of bias rises to the level of propaganda, in fact, a privately-controlled culture promotion machine.
This book unapologetically takes the position that the primary reason for most of the failures of the independent production and distribution companies in the U.S. film industry during the nearly 90-year history of the Hollywood-based U.S. film industry relates to this issue (i.e., the lack of a "level playing field") and not "lack of hits" or "poor financial management" as others have suggested. The lack of hits and poor financial management arguments are merely industry rationalizations, used to shift the blame from where it belongs. In other words, the Hollywood insider group, represented most prominently by the top-level executives of the major studio/distributors, the top talent agencies and a few of the important entertainment law firms, have tipped the scales in their favor to the exclusion of outsiders. There is no "level playing field" in Hollywood and it has not been level for many years.

What You Can Do If Your Teenager is Bullied In School or In Person:
Movies affect the education of our children and therefore the future of the nation. Technological changes in the means of communication utilized in conveying information to children has created significant challenges for parents, educators and government. The commercially-oriented entertainment industry resists efforts to bring about changes in their freedom to tell stories in any manner and with whatever content they choose. The only remedy which will bring about long-term, lasting reform is to insure diversity at the highest levels of decision-making within the entertainment industry (see the discussion regarding remedies in this book's companion volume ).

It is also important to recognize that the same people or corporate conglomerates that produce and distribute American-made motion pictures are also (in many cases) responsible for the production of a significant proportion of our television entertainment and these same corporate conglomerates also have ownership interests in music industry entities. Thus, reform of the U.S. film industry, will impact both television and music, two other media contributing to the education of our children (see).

Movies Affect the Education of Our Children--One hundred years ago, the education of children was predominantly the responsibility of parents, schools and churches. That responsibility has not changed, but in the modern world, it is increasingly difficult for parents, schools and churches to effectively compete for the attention of and influence over their own children. The invention and popularity within the last 100 years or so of the motion picture, the phonograph, radio, television, VCR's and CD's, among others, has made it possible for individuals and organizations besides parents, schools and churches (organizations with different motivations) to bombard our children with all sorts of ideas and messages typically under the guise of "entertainment". These messages form another formidable layer of "education" for our children and frustrated parents who do not approve of the kind of "education" being provided through such means have yet to come up with a satisfactory solution to the problem. As Michael Medved points out, "[n]early all parents want to convey to their children the importance of self-discipline, hard work, and decent manners; but the entertainment media celebrate vulgar behavior, contempt for all authority, and obscene language--which is inserted even in 'family fare' where it is least expected."
