Haim Saban to Oliver Stone: Time to Retire

Haim Saban says that Oliver Stone belongs “in the professional wilderness” following his remarks to a British reporter that “Jewish domination of the media” was a reason for the focus on the Holocaust.

Stone issued an apology on Monday, calling his comments “clumsy.”

Saban writes on Huffington Post, “Oliver Stone should be given a helping hand — indeed, a vigorous
shove — into the land of forced retirement. There, in the professional
wilderness where he belongs, standing on a splintered soapbox right next
to Mel Gibson’s, he can preach his anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism
into the wind.

“Anyone who works with this guy should be ashamed of himself/herself,
and shouldn’t share this distasteful fact with their neighbors — and
especially their kids.”

Stone has a project, “The Secret History of America,” in the works for Showtime.
