Murdoch cited by NCCJ org

International media mogul Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp. Ltd. and Fox Inc., received the National Conference of Christians & Jews’ annual Entertainment Industry Humanitarian Award.

Actor Chevy Chase and MCA chairman Lew Wasserman presented the award to Murdoch during the group’s 29th annual awards dinner held Wednesday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Guests included Corbin Bernsen, Luke Perry, Brandon Tartikoff, John Landis and Aaron Spelling.

“I’m proud to be a small part of this community,” Murdoch told the crowd of more than 1,000 entertainment exex.

Murdoch advised the audience not to “hide” from the charge that “Hollywood should be feared,” noting that it is a community capable of multiple viewpoints representing “the tolerance and diversity that have made America the greatest country in the world today.”

A spokesman for the NCCJ said the benefit raised a record $ 1 million and much of it would be targeted to programs to reduce racial tensions in the Los Angeles area.
