Last time Hollywood heard of British journalist William Cash, a Hollywood correspondent for the conservative Daily Telegraph, he had written a 1994 story in the Spectator called “Kings of the Deal,” that talked of Jewish dominance in Hollywood and indicated that Jews had created an “invidious and protective culture” that kept non-Jews out of prime Hollywood jobs. It was widely viewed by Hollywood execs as anti-Semitic, and created quite an uproar.
Now the New Yorker’s doing a story about how people live in Hollywood. And guess who they’ve hired to write it? William Cash. The mag confirmed he’d be doing a story. It will be interesting to see who lets him in the front door.
